Math on the Tube

During the past couple of days, fans from our Facebook page have recommended two math videos for us. Here they go: “D” offers up a piece called “The New Math” (above), which talks, yes, about the revolution in teaching mathematics. As you’ll see, the piece breaks into comic song, and it all kind of has an Arlo Guthrie, Alice’s Restaurant feel to it. A bit of a strange combo, to be sure.

Next up, Heather gives us Mathmaticious (get it here), which is a mathematical parody of Fergie’s “Fergalicious,” although sadly or, maybe actually happily, I’m not familiar with it. Snooty, snarky me…

  • Thanks for passing on the visually augmented version of Tom Lehrer’s classic “New Math”, but it can hardly be said to reference “Alice’s Restaurant” which it actually predated by two years.

    This is lip-synched NEW MATH by Tom Lehr (I remembered this from over 20 years ago)
