As a final project for those taking AP Statistics and AP Calc this year, students had to create a music video with the mathematical terminology and concepts they have learned, displaying their newly gained knowledge. After a long year of hard work, a fun project like this gave students a last pleasant memory of the class. According to the grading rubric, students were scored on their creativity, use of vocabulary, and the difficulty to which they crafted their lyrics. While there were some rules, students took advantage of the opportunity to display their originality in humorous music videos, going as far as wearing costumes to re-enacting a song from a musical.  

Seniors Keith Hackleman, Matthew Sakamoto, Matthew Fernandez, Gavin Rodinsky, and Jarrett Powers cover “Photograph” by Nickelback, country-themed.

“Every memory of looking at the projector

I take my notes, my hand is sore

It’s hard to get it, I really need it

A five, a five”

Jhana Camarena, Lena Saucedo, Anthony Guarnizo, Thani Nuru, and Jose Parra sung statistical vocabulary to “Yeah” by Usher.

“Class with my homies

Tryna score a 5

On the AP

Do you know how it feels?

They were teaching us test of significance

From the start we didn’t understand, but they talked like we got it

So we decided to ask

 

Conversation got confusing

They had us feeling like we were gonna fail (watch out oh, watch out)”
