Description

Welcome to Fostering Mathematical Thinking through Music, another volume in the Casio series of books intended to make mathematics intriguing in a way that engages them in meaningful, thought-provoking investigations that lead to deep understanding of key mathematical ideas.

Music is an area with intriguing connections to mathematics. Research is beginning to shed light on some of the cognitive connections that exist, and, in fact, many mathematics professors and teachers have excellent musical talent. In addition to being one of our passions, music also is an area of interest for the vast majority of students. Not only does it provide motivation for learning, it also provides a means to help even those who do not consider themselves overly musical to learn important ideas in a way that they will retain the ideas as they become stronger mathematical thinkers.

The investigations presented in this volume are compatible with both the processes and content espoused by the Common Core State Standards for mathematics. Our goal is to expand students' understanding in a wide variety of topics, from fractions to algebra to trigonometry. Some of the investigations are intended for students as young as fourth or fifth grade, while others are intended for students in a pre-calculus class.
