We're gonna skip to one song and one song only...
So I derive so hard, teachers wanna get behind me
Newton wants to find me
What's the integral of ln(x) from 1 to 3, can you please remind me?
Derive so hard

Study hard till we don't play
I can get 50 percent on the test but I know the curve will help me
Derive so hard

Need chain rule
It is such a useful tool
Derive so hard

You know me
Change position to velocity
All right though, I know how to solve this, take your pick
Product, power, quotient rule, test 6
Derive so hard

Got acceleration
Use a number line for the calculation
Find the zeroes, of the times for the max and mins of integration
Derive so hard

I'm shocked too; I thought I'd end up with a d, shoot
You derived, but I survived, and now I can find the tangent too,
Derive so hard

To get A's, study hard for like 6 days
Graphing calc, triple A's, ready to, differentiate
Derive so hard

That I crave, calculus that is engraved
Permanent, in the brain, take the concepts, to the grave

Derive so hard; teachers wanna get behind me (integrate [3x]) (2x)

Indeterminates; I wanna solve them all
So my teacher taught me about L'Hospital
take the derivation not the integral
Now you have the slope and that's what it's called

Derive so hard
Integrate, don't you say
Derive so hard
When's the AP?
It's in May.
Derive so hard
F double prime, that's concave
Derive so hard
Act like you never do another calculus problem again

Solve for volume, draw the band, integration is the plan
Didn't go to calc camp...
We're just sayin
We can balance all the fun with difficulty
Make the BC kids all wanna drop to AB

What's the curve my teacher?
What the hell's the procedure?
What's a foot to a meter?
What's faster than a cheetah?

Teachers say I'm the smartest
'Cause my brain is the largest
Got our heads in the clouds
Like we snortin' some stardust (huh?)

Dude, what the hell, don't say that
Dude, calm down it's a calculus rap; it's not actually true
But we're in calculus and it's provocative!

Derive so hard teachers wanna get behind me (2x)

I'm on the cusp of death
Where you can't find the tangent (3x)
Take that shell across the line
Not the x-axis the y
Smartest nerd on the planet
Using TI's to graph's a habit

Where you can't find the tangent (4x)

The grades are up on InClass
I dropped the test so now I can pass
I'm about to integrate it
working hard, I'm constipated (yeah)

I'm on the cusp of death
Where you can't find the tangent (2x)
(The tangent, the tangent)

This is our Calculus AB project for the end of the year. It is a parody of N****s in Paris by Jay-Z and Kanye West.

S.N., Big Country, and Dementia, are members of an aspiring Hip Hop/Rap group called "E.M.P.", and they created this hit single. The song was co-produced by Prescription Beats. Devon held the camera.
