Music Math Challenge

Music Meets Math Challenge  


Mrs. Pierce Dunn recently challenged her 6th and 7th-grade Classroom Music students to create a music math problem. Students learn music theory year round and develop an understanding of the relationship between music rhythms and math.

Students were instructed to take rhythm symbols and then create and solve a math problem that was related to their current math curriculum. Then, they handed a copy of their problem to their math teachers with a key to the music symbols and had them solve!

A big thank you to Fugett math teachers: Mrs. DeLeo, Mr. Dunn, Mr. Mobley, Mrs. Morales and Mrs. Donohue for solving over 100 music math problems!
