Product Description
Students use ratios & proportions to the beat of their favorite songs!

The purpose of this activity is to show students how music and math are related and that musicians use mathematical principals in creating musical pieces. This packet includes one in-depth activity plus an extension.

Activity 1: "Beats Per Minute"
The first activity begins as a class with students listening and clapping along to songs with different tempos. Students then use the data to complete graphing and ratio word problems. For example, if a song has 120 beats per minute, how many beats are in 2 minutes?

Activity 2: "Marching Band"
Students march to the beat of a song and measure the distance. They compute ratio calculations to determine how many beats to march across a football field.

These activities can be assigned as homework, individual work, or small group work. This material can be used as: supplemental instruction to fraction and ratios, extracurricular work for students, or activities for an after school math or STEM club.

About STEM Challenges: STEM challenges are an engaging way to incorporate the engineering design process into your classroom or afterschool program! These hands-on activities allow students to work in teams, apply the engineering design process, and connect science topics to real-world applications. The teacher will provide the structure to the project, but students will take an active role in designing and building their own balloon rocket device.
