Savvy Teacher Remixes Beyoncé’s ‘Formation’ And Schools Kids In Geometry

Forget boring lectures when you can get ‘reckless every time I square my radius.’

Psst, math teachers: Want to put your students to sleep? Go old school and deliver a boring lecture. Want them to be able to enthusiastically calculate the circumference of a circle? Turn to Beyoncé.

At least that’s what Ciera Paul, a seventh-grade geometry teacher in New Orleans, decided to do to get her students to learn and have fun while doing so. Paul took Queen B’s hit song “Formation” and reworked the lyrics so that they became math formulas.

 The results are in a video that shows Paul’s classroom singing verses such as “I’m so crazy with my circular measurements / Pi times diameter gives me the circumference / I’m so reckless every time I square radius / I multiply it times pi to get the area.”

The fan page Beyoncé Legion posted the video on Facebook on Tuesday. Since then, it has been liked nearly 54,000 times, has been shared about 71,000 times, and has racked up around 3.1 million views.

“One Sunday night while I was at home, Beyoncé’s ‘Formation’ came on the radio, and I thought to myself, ‘I bet they’re going to like this song,’ ” Paul explained to ABC News. It took her about 30 minutes to come up with lyrics that matched the melody.
