This post is the 9th in a series of brief profiles of people who will be presenting their work at VOICES, a first-of-its-kind online conference on using music to teach STEM, on Sept. 27-28, 2017.
Marc Gutman is a systems engineer, former math teacher, and co-creator of “Calculus: The Musical.” Below is an example of one of his many math songs — this one about functions that are not differentiable.
Marc will be participating in a lively moderated discussion of STEM songwriting, which may diverge from his originally submitted abstract, which is shown below.

Focusing on: What information does a STEM song carry. An examination of techniques to carry that information. And how do you expand Songwriting into Theatre / Performance?
