Winnipeg math teacher helps kids stay focused during pandemic with viral ‘Math Guy’ video

A Winnipeg math teacher known for coming up with creative ways of getting kids hooked on numbers has tuned into his inner Weird Al in a new video for his students, who are at home due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Math Guy, a parody of — or, as its creator calls it, an homage to — the song Bad Guy by Billie Eilish, is the creation of Will Penner, a teacher at Arthur Day Middle School.

The video features Penner singing, dancing and rapping through the halls of the school — in an educational way, of course.

“Let’s look at (math) from a different angle and have some fun with it and not just think about it as textbook or worksheet work,” Penner told 680 CJOB.
