Exploring Music Through Mathematics and Coding on the TI-Innovator™ Hub
Technology: TI-84 Plus family, TI-Nspire™ Technology
Speakers: Alice Fisher, Mike Smith
Explore the deep connection between music and mathematics while we learn how to encode music using the TI-Innovator™ Hub.
- Learn the principles of musical scales discovered by the Pythagoreans to analyze musical notes mathematically
- Explore how to encode music (including rhythm) by representing each note with its sound frequency and duration in time
- Experience how computational thinking can support the problem-solving process by learning how to use pattern recognition and abstractions in coding to efficiently create music
- If time allows, learn how to construct simple external speakers that connect to the TI-Innovator™ Hub through the breadboard connections
Both TI-84 Plus CE and TI-Nspire™ technology are used.Download documents
