Chain Rule, Baby!

We learned the Chain Rule today in calculus. I love showing the kids this comic, aptly titled “Chain Rule, Baby!” by Courtney Gibbons:

My fifth hour absolutely loved this (most kids do).  It was taken to the next level, though, since I actually am pregnant.  It turned into, “Differentiate Mrs. P–leave Jonas inside; differentiate Jonas!”

And then we decided that, with as much calculus as Jonas hears every day, we all fully expect him to come out of the womb knowing at least the power rule.  At least.

Oh their sense of humor…can’t get enough.
