In the Recommend Music and Musicians section, we provide musical pieces from great masters and contemporary musicians for each instrument. In the Mathematical Standard and Mathematical Concepts section, we detail the mathematics content covered in the activity matching the corresponding NCTM standards. Finally, the Activity & Questions section allows students to engage in each activity as well as discuss questions allowing students to share their ideas in groups.
