Delving Deeper
Delving Deeper: How Is Geometry in Tune with Bach?

Larry VanOyen, Rich Wilders 

August 2007, Volume 101, Issue 1, Page 62

Abstract:
This month: Connections between the "formal systems" found in mathematics and music are explored. The music of Bach provides a background for students to use math to compose chords to supplement the melody. The "Delving Deeper" department provides a forum that allows classroom teachers to share the mathematics from their work with students, their classroom investigations and projects, and their other experiences. Edited by Al Cuoco and E. Paul Goldenberg.
