Something amazing happened in Williamson Theatre at the College of Staten Island on May 5. An audience of students and faculty from CSI and local high schools cheered for the first derivative, L’Hopital’s rule, and critical points. These and other math topics were covered in Calculus the Musical and attendees said that they would never think of calculus the same way again.

This professional musical performed by the Know Theatre of Cincinnati was part of the Fourth Annual Teacher Education Honors Academy conference that featured presentations of lessons done by Teacher Education Honors Academy students as part of their work in host schools. The host schools included Curtis, New Dorp, Port Richmond, College of Staten Island High School for International Studies, IS 61, and IS 49.

In his welcoming remarks, President Dr. Tomás Morales emphasized the College’s commitment to this selective honors program and the important role that it plays in the College and the community of Staten Island.
