‘Math Suks’ ~ Jimmy Buffett

Need to relax after studying? Close to wanting to “burn your textbook”? This super chill and somewhat cheesy song may help! Coming to you from Jimmy Buffett, the singer has a relaxed, island/ska like vibe to his music.  The lyrics come close to sounding like an after school special until the words “Math Sucks” are sung over and over again.  Enjoy! 🙂

‘Math Suks’ by Jimmy Buffet Lyrics:

If necessity is the mother of invention
Then I’d like to kill the guy who invented this
The numbers come together in some kind of a third dimension
A regular algebraic bliss.

Let’s start with something simple, like one and one ain’t three
Any two plus two will never get you five.
There are fractions in my subtraction and x don’t equal y
But my homework is bound to multiply.

Math suks math suks
I’d like to burn this textbook, I hate this stuff so much.
Math suks math suks
Sometimes I think that I don’t know that much
But math suks.

I got so bored with my homework, I turned on the TV.
The beauty contest winners were all smiling through their teeth.
Then they asked the new Miss America
Hey babe can you add up all those bucks?
She looked puzzled, then just said
“Math Suks”.

Math suks math suks
You don’t even have to spell it,
All you have to do is yell it…
Math suks math suks
Sometime times I think that I don’t know that much
But math suks.

Geometry, trigonometry and if that don’t tax your brain
There are numbers to big to be named
Numerical precision is a science with a mission
And I think it’s gonna drive me insane.

Parents fighting with their children, and the Congress can’t agree
Teachers and their students are all jousting constantly.
Management and labor keep rattling old sabers
Quacking like those Peabody ducks.

Math suks math suks
You don’t even have to spell it,
All you have to do is yell it…
Math suks math suks
Sometime times I think that I don’t know that much
But math suks

Does this make sense? Great! 🙂 Is it clear as mud? I have failed. But I have not given up (and neither should you). Ask more questions, look for the spots where you got lost, do more research and never give up! 🙂

Top 5 Favorite Math Websites

As we all love technology (I’m assuming since it has brought you here), I figured I should share my top favorite math sites.  These are great resources for learning things you don’t understand, practicing for an upcoming test or if you’re like me, it’s great for re-learning/teaching purposes.  Yes, even I forget how to do things and these websites are a great help.  I know the anticipation is getting to you so I’ll just get to the good stuff now. Here are my top 5 favorite math websites:

  1. Khan Academy : This is a non profit over in Silicon Valley.  They have a great range of subjects (k-college level)  and explain everything via easy to follow videos.
  2. Regent’s Prep: The title is pretty self explanatory, but this helps with reviewing for the New York State Regent’s.  This site has a lot of great examples and answers.
  3.  MathSux:  So fabulous, no explanation is required. 😀
  4.  Knewton:  Pretty cool things are happening at this web address.  You can make an account, answer some questions and the questions will adjust according to your answers figuring out what you need help in.
  5. Kahoot: Fast and easy quizzes that are good for an entire classroom or for studying alone.  Either way there are lots of bright and happy colors that make you forget you’re studying anything in the first place.

So those are the goods, the contraband, the info you can’t find anywhere else (all lies).  Hope you find these websites useful. Let me know if you end up using any of them.  🙂
