RAP in MATH ERRORS
Student Rap Session
Thursday, January 31, 2013
3:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.
Georges Auditorium in the PSB
Rhyming lyrics and verses in time to a beat/melody, rapping has worked its way from reggae and into mainstream and alternative rock music. Spoken to a beat, either with backing of music or a capella, rap is a complex mix of influences, and typically includes elements of speech, prose, poetry and song (WIKI How). At this session, Dillard students perform above expectations by getting in front of the influences. Listen as students incorporate principles of mathematics in their own rap lyrics. If you appreciate the art form and you are ready for a good time, this Rap Session is for you!
