Would've been better without the last panel imo, but otherwise great.

Damn... i don't get it.
The maths geek in me sees that "x cubed" gets differentiated down to "3x squared"... but why?

Very amusing. Does this mean that Black Dragons are superb mathematicians?

Might have been funnier if Dudley had fired the "disintegration" beam. But I too got the joke.
For those who don't know: Differentiation (finding the derivative) can be done by multiplying a term by its power and reducing the power by 1, as shown in the comic. Very useful in computing velocity and acceleration from an object's position at different times.
The reverse of this process is called integration. So differentiation could be said to be disintegration.
