Music educator Phil Tulga created these tools for making music
that cleverly integrates Mathematical concepts like patterns and
fractions with musical ideas like rhythm and pitch.

Unifix Drum Machine
<a href="http://www.philtulga.com/unifix.html">http://www.philtulga.com/unifix.html</a>
You get three drums, and click to make patterns. When all three drums
soundtogether you get an unexpected rhythm. There are also built-in
rhythms to listen to.

Musical Fraction Bars

Arrange the bars to create a melody.

Pattern Block Rock
<a href="http://www.philtulga.com/patternblock.html">http://www.philtulga.com/patternblock.html</a>
Useblocks of different shapes to describe a rhythm, and then listen to
your creation.

Fraction Pie Rhythm
<a href="http://www.philtulga.com/pie.html">http://www.philtulga.com/pie.html</a>
Use pie slices to describe a rhythm, and listen to a drum play it.

The tools require the free "Shockwave" software, which you can
download if you need it using the link on the tool page.
