Interpreting and Displaying Data through the Study of Pitch, Melody, and Bach
The Harwich Elementary School, in partnership with the Cape Cod Symphony, is participating in an educational program called MusicWorks! Everyday. This program broadens students' appreciation for classical music while improving their listening skills.
The purpose of this plan is to blend this new music program with students' classroom learning experiences. In this case, we hope to blend music and math in a way that will increase student use and understanding of how to display and interpret data. Using their interpretation of data displayed in bar graphs, students will construct three dimensional representations of Bach's Cello Suite No. 1 in G Major. This activity will serve to help students connect the morning music listening activity and their study of pitch and melody in music class with their math skills in the interpretation and display of data.
