Is this what Calculus Does to people?

First let's just give some credit where it's due. There are GREAT teachers out there! (and in our public schools, to boot! Yeah and thank you!)

Well, here's the scoop. It's a odd phenomenon that I've never witnessed before.

It was a sighting worth recording for posterity's sake. After a full year of hard studies and countless extra hours both at school and in study group all over the northwest Las Vegas Valley, they came together with a plan. They were going to conquer the AP Calculus exam. How would this be? How could they possibly master the seemingly impossible feat? What would it take. The plan was dancing, adopting a mascot, driving their teacher crazy, and dressing for the occasion. Only in a unified uniformed state could they come out the victor!

So through their organized study groups, they came up with t-shirts, matching pant colors, paint, tube socks with stripes, ribbons for their hair and jigs to go with their stressful moments. Did they come out on top? We don't know the outcome yet. My Black and pink creation came home dazed with a test sticker attached to her cheek. It was a worrisome site but there is hope on the horizon.

I just think that others should see the proof of this craziness in the ages of education.

Behold Lauren's Calculus Comrades in all their glory. (Lauren is on the far right of the 4 girls sitting down, just in case you weren't sure at this point)

Calculus is FUN, really.

(and in case you didn't get it, yes, this is how they dressed for their very serious AP exam on wednesday)
