#Trending: NOLA Teacher teaches students to get in mathematic ‘#Formation.’

One of Beyonce’s latest tunes continues to get the nation in forms of formation. Several folks have take the tune which celebrates culture and empowerment and put their own spin on it.

Earlier this week the Syncopated Ladies tapped in formation and now New Orleans teacher, Ciera Paul is teaching her students to get in mathematic formation.

The ReNEW Cultural Arts Academy math teacher put her lesson to the formation beat to teach kids geometry. She told ABC News her lyrics (which also incorporate a little Spanish too) took about a half hour to write.

Paul says it took her class of seventh graders about two weeks to learn and she’s already seeing improving grades.

Paul told ABC News that she had always joked about remixing a song for the class lesson, but hadn’t gotten around to actually doing it before the Beyoncé remix. The math teacher came up with the idea for a “Formation” remix on a whim, and whipped up the math-related lyrics fairly quickly.
