    There was a problem rendering this video - it may have been deleted.

    According to @corn_maiden_designs, who reposted the student's video in an Instagram carousel, 'This was taken at John W. North high school in Riverside, CA. At first the student noticed the teacher was pulling out a fake feather headdress and when she put it on he thought, "what is she going to do?"'

    It's surprisingly easy to find lesson plans online that use the fake tale of an Indian chief called Sohcahtoa. I think it's safe to say that in 2021, we don't need to use racial stereotypes to teach trigonometry.
