Ira Harden (MAT ’11) was recently featured in an article on TakePart.com titled, “Clip of the Day: Teacher Raps His Way Through Chemistry Lessons.” The article said that Ira makes stoichiometry cool for his high school chemistry class at City Honors College Preparatory Charter School by rapping about it.

Mr. Harden’s stoichiometry rap was the cap to a week full of creative presentations on the subject by his pupils. Students presented songs, skits, dances, speeches, music videos, and even video game programming to help learn the ins and outs of stoichiometry.
