A Brief History Of Fuzzy Math In Popular Music

Beyonce, "1 + 1"

The Frisky staff is thoroughly enjoying Beyoncé‘s new album, 4. In fact, we spent the majority of yesterday jamming to it and, as we listened, we found ourselves especially drawn to the song “1 + 1,” which includes the line, “I don’t know much about algebra/ but I know one plus one equals two.” Correct, Beyoncé! But, really, why rest on that base knowledge? As a proud math nerd—and former mathlete—I’d be happy to teach you about polynomials and vectors anytime. Algebra ain’t so scary.
