MUSIC-MATH Integrated Activities for Elementary and Middle School Students

By Song A. An and Mary M. Capraro [Texas A&M University]

(Cover portrait by Leanne Jin)

This book provides a comprehensive connection between mathematics and
world-wide cultures through 43 musical instrument designing
activities and 12 music composition activities. In each activity, we
provide a Background section detailing concise historical or cultural
information about the origin, development or the characteristics of
the musical instruments as well as music composition theory. 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.
