The chorus on the Law of Cosines is left as an exercise to the reader.

Too cute. My daughters love this song. I actually use your comics as do-nows in my class. Keep up the fantastic work.

Bonus points for the accompanying tweet. As to the chorus...
"Subtracting 2ab cos C
from Pythagorus
from Pythagorus
it's Pythagorean
Subtracting 2ab cos C
from Pythagorus
and you'll have no fuss
start with Pythagorus "

Though I find the Cosine Law works better using Kristina Maria - https://sites.google.com/site/taylorspolynomials/specials/011-parabsingscosineit

Also Canadian. It's a calculated plot that begins with us taking over pop songs, I believe.

Oddly enough, I read that particular Taylor's Polynomials a while ago, sometime in the spring.

I haven't gone to that site in a while, and I should because it's good.
