My high school calculus professor learned and taught us a new technique for integration by parts from a scene in Stand and Deliver.

Which just makes it even more THE BEST MATH MOVIE EVER!!

Let’s not forget Danny Kaye’s stop by an early school that emphasized drills and chants as “learning tools”.

I was thought it interesting that the Scarecrow in the Wizard of Oz recited the Pythagorean Theorem wrong.

Maybe that’s why I didn’t excel in math.
