Upper School Science and Math Teacher Maggie Mahmood ’07 and Students Featured on CBS Baltimore

Upper School science and math teacher Maggie Mahmood ’07 uses her students’ favorite tunes to transform her physics and math lessons into catchy rap songs, engaging them in a unique way. Maggie and her students were featured on WJZ-13 CBS, discussing, and performing some of their innovative songs. 

“I realized students could remember a ton of lyrics from their favorite songs, but when it came time to remember vocabulary for the course or course content, it was really difficult to recall things,” Maggie said in the interview. Since she’s started incorporating this technique, she’s noticed her students are more engaged in the subject. 

Maggie and her students create music videos, together, showcasing their musical prowess. “It was probably one of my favorite classes last year,” sophomore Bishop Freeman said. “It’s a lot of fun; I wasn’t super into science before, but it launched me in that realm of being more interested in it and thinking it’s cool.”
