Making Music with Maths


Did you know that ancient Greeks, in particular the Pythagoreans, are known as the first to investigate musical scales in terms of simple ratios? In this session, participants will use proportional reasoning to write code that will create the sound of music on the TI-Innovator™ Hub! Applying the principles of musical scales discovered by the Pythagoreans, participants will encode musical notes – including rhythm – by representing each note with its sound frequency and duration in time. LEGO® Blocks will be demonstrated as a manipulative to help analyse the rhythm of a song snippet. Learn how to harmonize music and mathematics in your classroom!
