Mathamusic in 8th Grade

June 09, 2017

Do you love music? And do you have a hard time remembering the steps to long, complicated mathematical processes? Ms. Holston, 8th grade math teacher, asked these questions of her students to prompt the "mathamusic" lesson.  She gave students the opportunity to write their own math song and create a music video demonstrating a mathematical concept that they learned this year. Students were invited to find karaoke versions of songs and write their own lyrics or play instruments and write their own melody. Each project had to include a music video and unique lyrics.
