Math Class: The Musical (A Musical Written and Produced by a Senior Math Class)
Words of the owner:

This is a short musical I wrote about my math class in the last week of school. The music is written and recorded by me, Leeran Z. Raphaely, with lyrics by myself and Matt Jensen. It was shot and co-edited by Michael Fishman. It stars Evan Sadler, Rachel Pedreira, Colin Ramsay, and other Schjelderup students.

The whole thing was filmed and edited in one day.

Musical Numbers:

The fascinating phenomenon of superconductivity and its potential applications have attracted the attention of scientists, engineers and businessmen. Intense research has taken place to discover new superconductors, to understand the physics that underlies the properties of superconductors, and to develop new applications for these materials. In this unit you will read about the history of superconductors, taking a brief look at their properties. You will also learn about modelling the propertie

Motion is vital to life, and to science. This unit will help you to understand why classical motion is probably the most fundamental part of physics. You will examine motion along a line and the ways in which such motion can be represented, through the use of graphs, equations and differential calculus.

James Clerk Maxwell (1831-1879) is arguably the father of electromagnetism, and unarguably one of the greatest physicists ever. Einstein called Maxwell's equations 'the most important event in physics since Newton's time, not only because of their wealth of content, but also because they form a pattern for a new type of law'. This unit will examine Maxwell's greatest triumph, the prediction that electromagnetic waves can propagate vast distances through empty space and the realisation that light
