Calculus and rap music: an uncommon sum

Sr. Camille Panich, SCN, who teaches several advanced math courses

at Vincentian Academy in Pittsburgh has a new way to engage
students in her Advanced Placement Calculus class. She incorporates rap music into teaching a
lesson on the Riemann Sum. 

Sr. Camille discovered the integration of music and math at the Advanced
Placement Calculus Reading Seminar that she attended this past summer. Sr. Camille
purchased the CD entitled “Calculus: the Musical“, and a new teaching lesson
was ‘composed’.
