How Music Makes Math Easier

  1. 1. How Music Makes Math Easier By: Austin Bynum
  2. 2. Listening to music in math lessons can dramatically improve children’s ability in the subject and help them score up to 40% higher in examinations, a new study has found. Music helps students learn math
  3. 3. An innovative curriculum uses rhythm to teach fractions at a California school where students in a music-based program scored significantly higher on math tests than their peers who received regular instruction. Music Rhythm Study
  4. 4. The researchers compared the test scores of lower- performing students in both groups and found that those who were taught the experimental music curriculum score 40% higher on the final fractions test compared to their lower performing peers in the regular math class. Music Rhythm Study Continued
  5. 5. Reports and Studies 1999: Dr. Gordon Shaw, University of California-Irvine Studies three groups of 2nd grade students 1. Received piano lesson and used special mathematics computer program 2. Received English training and used special mathematics computer program 3. Received standard classroom instruction only
  6. 6. Reports and Studies Continued 1999: Dr. Gordon Shaw, University of California-Irvine After 4 months of training, students were tested in ratios and fractions. The first group that received piano lessons and used the math computer program scored 15%- 41% highers than the other two groups.
  7. 7. Music Beats Tapping out a beat may help students learn difficult fraction concepts, according to new findings due to be published in the Journal Educational Studies in Mathematics. Check out some examples on the next slides
