If there is a definite disadvantage to not paying attention to pop radio, and spending most of my time listening to audiobooks rather than music, it’s that I often don’t get cultural references or understand spoofs. I could name many examples, but the one of the more recent was when the Librarians Do Gaga video was virally spreading throughout the library world.
Thus, when this video was mentioned, I didn’t realize at first that it was a sort of spoof:
My lack of recognition of the cultural reference aside, this is an awesome video. The students not only manage to make math fun and create an easy way for fellow students to remember math function, but THEY DO IT SO WELL. I’ve seen less-than-fabulously-produced songs and raps that achieve a similar purpose, but this one renews my faith in such endeavors.
Thanks to Michelle Luhtala of EdWeb seminar fame for posting the video.
