Hopping on the Social Media Trend: Here’s Montana Math
By now, if you're on social media, then you've probably seen the trend going around where someone picks a group of people and describes rules by "giving you the numbers." And they call it "math." It's such a popular trend, it's been written about by Forbes and CNN.
While Forbes explains that this grew out of the 'Girl Dinner' trend, CNN points out that what started out as a joke has gotten less funny over time.
