This lesson should last you 2 - 3 weeks, as you should leave plenty of time for students to prepare for the trial before it begins. I usually let them prepare for 1 or 2 full classes until the actual debate, it also allows them to build their excitement as well!
Beethoven was completely deaf yet still wrote some of the most incredible musical compositions in all history. Thanks to the Mathematics in music, this was made possible.
of this this lesson plan is designed to explain to students how the math formulas in music are very present. There are Mathematical formulas that determine what will or will not sound pleasing to the human ear, and mathematics in every rhythm we hear as well.
They will then debate whether or not the mathematics of music should be taught in Math class.
Students will choose one side
- and defend it to the end in a court trial. Slide show presents the court trial in the following sections:
Music Should Be Taught in Math Class - Opening Statements (3 min Timer)
Music Should Be Taught in Math Class - Provides Evidence (3 min Timer)
Music Should NOT Be Taught in Math Class - Opening Statements (3 min Timer)
Music Should NOT Be Taught in Math Class (3 min Timer)
Both Sides may ask questions & Debate (Endless Timer
Music Should Be Taught in Math Class - Closing Statements
Music Should NOT Be Taught in Math Class - Closing Statements
I know it is hard as a music teacher to remain bais, but just remember it's only a critical thinking exercise at the end of the day! ;)
