Music Is Math With Feelings

When: Tuesday, April 21, 2020 | 7 p.m. Central time
Technology: TI-84 Plus family, TI-Nspire™ CX family
Presenter: David Sword

Music and math are deeply intertwined.

From the numbering of the notes within a scale, to the chord numbering system, to connections between the Euclidean algorithm and rhythm, the “mathe-musical” beat goes on. In this webinar, we will join an imaginary band featuring Pythagoras, Euclid and Fibonacci.

Explore the mathematics behind Boston’s “More Than a Feeling” using the guitar fretboard, the keys on a keyboard, rhythm, and more, all leading to the grand finale of a rap tribute to the Pythagorean Theorem.

Attendees of the live webinar will be entered into a drawing for free registration to a 2020 T³™ Summer Workshop. (See drawing rules.)
