Watch Seventh-Graders Remix Beyonce's 'Formation' to Learn Geometry

Do you remember what you learned in your middle school Geometry class? Yeah, me neither. But seventh graders at New Orleans' ReNEW Cultural Arts Academy certainly will, thanks to their teacher, Ciera Cece Paul, who changed the words of Beyonce's "Formation" to include her latest math lesson. Lyrics include: "I'm so reckless every time I square my radius. I multiply it times pi to get the area" and "Geometry matters down in Louisiana. Remix these lyrics with vocab cause math matters."

Paul told ABC News that, since this exercise, her students' grades have improved and more of the kids are participating in class. Is there anything Beyonce can't do? (The answer is no.) Watch and learn:
