shouldn't you be able to count it since you are a big math nerd?

if you combine music and maths, does that make it more exciting?

1 2 3 o'clock, 4 o'clock rock
5, 6 7 o'clock , 8 o'clock

As well as having extremely bushy eyebrows, my high school maths teacher also I suspect, had a mental health problem. He decided if we sang the formula, we'd "get it".

a+b when it's squared
gives three terms now don't get scared
it's a squared first + 2 ab
than add b squared can't you see
only careless people miss the 2ab

doesn't that just want to make you run out and get a calculator?
did you hear about the constipated mathematician?
I like that ..... now I can't recall the name, that golden number? thingy. I don't understand it, but it's beautiful, like mandelbrots...can't spell that either.

My youngest son was considered a GAT student in mathematics, but he is really letting it go now in middle high school. I wish I knew how to rekindle his interest. I keep suggesting it would be better to aim for a career where he uses his mind and not his muscles. I don't think he's listening.
........2+2 always equals 5......
maybe he wants to be a musician
