Energize and excite your students with this highly interactive comprehensive power point on math and music integration, based on the new Common Core Essential Standards for Math and Music. Although designed for the music professional, this would be a valuable resource for any classroom teacher. This would also be useful as a leadership tool for a professional development seminar for teachers on math and music. This 354 page PDF is a multi-faceted instructional tool designed to guide students in the exploration of the deep relationship between math and music. Volume 1 Focuses solely on Rhythm, Beat and Meter. A free Bonus is included! "Rhythm Explorations for Fourth Grade." This is an in-depth resource and would be ideal for a situation where you are seeing your students every day. I use it across all grade levels for a six week intensive unit on rhythm.
