This project explores:
- The science of sound and hearing
- Coding to create sounds and musical notes
- Technology of speakers and microphones
- Music concepts like tempo, notes and scales
Coding the Sounds of Music gives students a fun introduction to STEM and Python programming. This project explores the science of sound and is designed with first-time coders in mind — no experience required.
With their TI-Nspire™ CX II graphing calculators, students will learn to program the output of various sounds, tones and music to play them on the TI-Innovator™ Hub’s built-in speaker. Download all the files you need for free, and start planning your next class project now. Let’s get coding!
