A group of 7th graders in Louisiana are making math fun by mixing schoolwork with Beyoncé.

High school janitor nails Sam Cooke

Teacher Ciera Paul recorded her class as they sang the word to their math-focused remix of Beyoncé‘s “Formation,” complete with lyrics like: “I’m crazy with my circular measurements. Pi times diameter gives me the circumference. Complimentary is 90 degree angles. Supplementary equals 1-8-0. I solved the problem like I’m a superhero.”

How do you discipline black kids in schools?

They threw in the Milly Rock and the Dab as well as a Spanish interlude: “Estoy tan loco con mis medidas circulares / Pi multiplican diametro me da la circumferencia.”

It’s time for a revolution in school discipline

Paul was gleefully proud of her students when she posted the video to her Facebook page, writing, “My students love to make beats and dance so I decided to teach them Geometry with a song. Of course my girls love Beyoncé so I knew they would be on board. I was excited to see that my boys were just as invested. They can find the circumference and area of any circle”
