Eye On Deriving

(song/video completed 4/2/2011)
I first showed the Rocky-themed video for “Eye of the Tiger” at the end of the last school year in my AP Calculus classes. I thought the underdog story was a fitting metaphor for the journey my students had just taken with me, and I was surprised by how many students were familiar with the Rocky movies and the 1982 song (Turns out the LSU band plays the song at football games, so I hear).
This year I felt inspired to customize the song and video for my class. Kudos to all 32 students this year who endured the grueling battle of AP Calculus!
