Aba Math Rap: Calculus II (computing volumes of solids of revolution)

I sung this poem/rap to my Calculus II class at Bowdoin College in Maine in the Spring 2012 semester. It explores the mathematics of computing volumes of solids of revolution by first computing Riemann sum approximations and then taking their limit as the number of terms in the sum tends to infinity. This gives a definite integral for the total volume of the solid. Go U Math Bears, Bowdoin!!
