# Friday Math Movie - Mathmaticious

By Murray Bourne, 25 Oct 2008

This movie is a mathematical parody of Fergie's *Fergalicious*.

**Lyrics** for Mathmaticious can be found below the movie. There have been over 1.5 million views of this movie as at the time of writing.

Drew D'Amelia is the star and it appears that he produced the whole thing. It's nerdy, but quite clever.

Here are the lyrics (source):

## Lyrics

Four, three, two, one

Listen up, ya'll, 'cause this is it

The numbers we're making are so vicious

Mathmaticious expeditious can be kind of scary

I hope my answers aren't radical or imaginary

I convert percents to fractions, it brings me some satisfaction

Like scientific notation and order of operations

Mathmaticious (repetitious)

Gets me expeditious

My answers may get vicious

My eraser's left in stitches

I make wishes (woo-ah)

I get the answer right, right

And I'll be staying up all night just to check what I write

Mathmaticious (The Pythagorean Theory)

Mathmaticious (Finds the hypotenuse for me)

Mathmaticious (Or I'll use trigonometry)

I'm Mathmaticious (d-d-d-d-d-decimal, decimal)

Locus of the points

Locus of the points

Locus of the points (points is echoing)

I'm up about figuring out greatest common factors

And when I make a pie chart I'm in need of a protractor

The angle of elevation, thanks to my calculations

Turns out to be 43, a prime number

I'm Mathmaticious (repetitious)

It makes me so ambitious

My answers are judicious

Calculator never glitches

It's my mission (deh deh deh den)

I get the answer right, right

And I'll be staying up all night just to check what I write

Mathmaticious (What's the probability?)

Mathmaticious (Of me not labeling my axis)

Mathmaticious (When graphing inequalities)

Mathmaticious (hold, hold, hold, hold, hold up, check your work)

Computing areas

Quadratic formula

Graphing parabolas

I think they're all so cool

It's my soul commitment

That I ace the Regents

Sine, cosine and tangent

Are my favorite tools

I divide, multiply, add, subtract, round off and simplify

I divide, multiply, add, subtract, round off and simplify

Is it whole? Rational? Factor out, substitute, solve for x

Is it whole? Rational? Factor, factor, factor, hit the pi key

3.14159, 26535, 89793238, 462

6433832, 7950288419, 716, 939937,

510582, 097494, 459230, 78164,

062, 86208998628, 0348

Mathmaticious (repetitious)

Gets me expeditious

My answers may get vicious

My eraser's left in stitches

I make wishes (woo-ah)

I get the answer right, right

And I'll be staying up all night just to check what I write (write, write, write)

Four, three, two, one

It makes me so ambitious

My answers are judicious

Calculator never glitches

It's my mission (deh deh deh den)

I get the answer right, right

And I'll be staying up all night just to check what I write

Mathmaticious (pi, pi, pi, pi)

Mathmaticious (pi, pi, pi, pi)

Mathmaticious (pi, pi, pi, pi)

I'm Mathmaticious (d-d-d-d-d-decimal, decimal)

It's Mathmaticious (pi, pi, pi, pi)

Mathmaticious (pi, pi, pi, pi)

Mathmaticious (pi, pi, pi, pi)

I'm Mathmaticious, d-d-d-d-d-d-d-d-d-d (pi, pi, pi, pi)

I divide, multiply, add, subtract, round off and simplify

I divide, multiply, add, subtract, round off and simplify

I divide, multiply, add, subtract, round off and simplify

I divide, multiply, add, sub (four, three, two, one)

Is it whole? Rational? Factor out, substitute, solve for x

Is it whole? Rational? Factor out, substitute, solve for x

Is it whole? Rational? Factor out, substitute, solve for x

Is it whole? Rational? Factor, factor, factor (four, three, two, one)

I divide, multiply, add, subtract, round off and simplify

I divide, multiply, add, subtract, round off and simplify

I divide, multiply, add, subtract, round off and simplify

I divide, multiply, add, sub (four, three, two, one)

Is it whole? Rational? Factor out, substitute, solve for x

Is it whole? Rational? Factor out, substitute, solve for x

Is it whole? Rational? Factor out, substitute, solve for x

Is it whole? Rational? Factor, factor, factor, factor, factor...

This video is weird but kinda cool! My math teacher shows it to us all the time and all my class does is laugh.
