Calculus: The Musical!
TRAVERSE CITY — All community members are invited to a free performance of Calculus: The Musical! at 10 a.m. May 2 in Milliken Auditorium.
The production is presented by NMC's Science & Math division with support from the NMC Barbecue. A humorous review of the concepts and history of calculus, the show has toured the nation since 2006 and aims to make advanced math fun and appealing.
"By bringing the musical to Traverse City we hope to engage students in mathematical content and history through the medium of music," said NMC math instructor Mary Erickson, adding that advanced math skills are in demand in the job market. "Calculus is a gateway course to majors and careers in high-paying STEM fields - science, technology, engineering and math."
Groups of ten or more are requested to RSVP to Erickson at firstname.lastname@example.org by April 21.
