I've put in { float math_constant [2] }

that is not the correct syntax for declaring an array.

declaring an array generally looks like this:

dataType array_name[x];

where x is the number of items the array can hold. to declare an array called math_constants that can hold 2 items you would use:

float math_constants[2];
