I’m a mathematician

A song inspired by the work and words of Lindi Wahl, Applied Math, UWO
Music by Daryn Bee
Lyrics and video by George Gadanidis

You don’t know how much fun it can be
You don’t know what you’re missing
Really love love love my job
I’m a mathematician
An applied mathematician

I work in the field of biology
Where new discoveries are made all the time
I’m an integral piece of that puzzle
Build math models that dazzle
Build math models that dazzle

I go and talk to some biologist
About a problem that they want to solve
They describe it to me in detail
I crystalize what’s important
I crystalize what’s important

I create my own mathematics
To help model the problem
I wrap biology ideas
In mathematical symbols
In mathematical symbols

You don’t know how much fun it can be
You don’t know what you’re missing
Really love love love my job
I’m a mathematician
An applied mathematician
