Mr. A’s 2014 Math Rap – “Learning Mathematics”


[This is the math that makes the bridge scene work] [Watch the rims on my car] Welcome to the math What it is, what it’s for, what it’s not, it isn’t looking for a better way to solve these problems everyday and kicking up my knowledge base in every little different way Hold up- Teacher walking, little bit humble, little bit cocky Somewhere between Descartes and Cauchy S-202 crew- y’all can’t stop me MATH – opens up a whole new world to see, Makes real the imaginary You know I’ve been to calc 3, mul-ti-var-i-ately As a student, I shed my pride and put my all into everything that I try- cause, uh- That’s how you learn… Let that smart-board light come and shine on down Monty Hall pro-ba-bil-it-ies mes-sin with your crown Gotta switch to get the money- chances are you chose wrong But you can win most of the time just let the math show you how Trust me. I’m a M-A-T-H-E-M-A-T-I-C-S teacher Teaching things since I was fourteen and I learned that- mathematics helps us understand the world around us- it’s all described by formulas Man without math you just can’t prove nothing I’m teaching it to the students, They’ll spread it across the country Man without math you just can’t prove nothing I’m teaching it to the students, They’ll spread it across the country Learning Mathematics, these are the moments We’re seeking the truth, using logic and reason So we put our hands up, so the teacher can see us So everybody can see us Learning Mathematics, these are the moments We’re seeking the truth, using logic and reason So we put our hands up, so the teacher can see us So everybody can see us Now, can I prove it? Thank you. Showing up with all the right tools. I come up, always looking to construct But that’s what you get when Euclid raised you Mathematics- a priori, knowledge is the goal even true in a different world And we’re keeping up the work on the shoulders of the giants who have come before us You- tell me prove it, Done! Proof box- Move on I got a world to see- and me, I wanna learn it all good proofs make you a believer, now- I never ever did it for a throne That validation comes from teaching the math to the students – watch their thinking grow on and on Raise those hands- this whole world is our classroom We came here to learn math like nobody was grading I got my Theorems right behind me, if I falter they got me- from false conjectures gain experience, and then we keep proving ourselves! Learning Mathematics, these are the moments We’re seeking the truth, using logic and reason So we put our hands up, so the teacher can see us So everybody can see us Learning Mathematics, these are the moments We’re seeking the truth, using logic and reason So we put our hands up, so the teacher can see us So everybody can see us
