Rhythmical experiences will allow the students to explore and discover that musical symbols have numerical values. Students will also learn that aspects of music can be described mathematically. An understanding of patterns, the ability to develop operations, reveal functions, and being able to move toward higher levels of abstractions, can be strengthened through parallel music study. Dividing beats and meters, performing and creating rhythm patterns and developing operations will be explored in this lesson. The summarization of the mathematical operations involved in the activity include division of beat into eighth and sixteenth notes; elongation in half notes; total number of beats per phrase in a four-beat pattern (16), in a two-beat pattern (8), in a one-beat pattern (4); totals counting repetitions of phrases- 16X2, 8X4, 4X8, and so on.
