Friday math movie: Two Dots

By Murray Bourne, 06 May 2011

Lusine's music provides a fitting backdrop to this animation that "illustrates the song's relationships-as-trigonometry analogy".

Here are the lyrics.

two dots
joined by a line
might be detached
by a crime

who is responsible
when the line is stretched
who is responsible
when it becomes a triangle
how irresponsible
when the line is stretched
how irresponsible
when it becomes a triangle


Now, let's watch the video.

HTML: You can use simple tags like <b>, <a href="...">, etc.

To enter math, you can can either:

  1. Use simple calculator-like input in the following format (surround your math in backticks, or qq on tablet or phone):
    `a^2 = sqrt(b^2 + c^2)`
    (See more on ASCIIMath syntax); or
  2. Use simple LaTeX in the following format. Surround your math with \( and \).
    \( \int g dx = \sqrt{\frac{a}{b}} \)
    (This is standard simple LaTeX.)

NOTE: You can mix both types of math entry in your comment.
