Music Note Duration

  1. 1. Music and Math <ul><li>Visuals for teaching music note duration </li></ul>
  2. 2. Visual Value <ul><li>Need for multiple methods of representations </li></ul><ul><li>Alternative method of explanation </li></ul><ul><li>Increases interest, increases appeal of learning </li></ul>
  3. 3. Visual- only one aspect <ul><li>Other representations are just as important. </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>audio, </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>text, </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>video </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Choose representation based on need </li></ul><ul><li>Together they offer well rounded explanations </li></ul><ul><li>Each have strengths and weakness. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Fractions <ul><li>A natural way to explain music duration </li></ul><ul><li>Fractions are easy to visualize and representation </li></ul><ul><li>Teaching by connecting to previous knowledge </li></ul><ul><li>Visuals images of fractions can relate be related to length of music note </li></ul>
  5. 5. Music Notes <ul><li>Display various types of music notes </li></ul><ul><li>Connect note image to fraction representation </li></ul><ul><li>Then connect fraction image to sound length </li></ul>
  6. 6. hth
  7. 7. Example Visual <ul><li>Comparing quarter, half, and whole notes </li></ul>
  8. 8. Example Visual <ul><li>This visual compares the number of notes used in one measure if only one type of note is used. </li></ul>
  9. 9. Example Visual <ul><li>This sample image shows the relationship among the note durations. Two half notes = One Whole Note </li></ul>
  10. 10. Money, Money, Money! <ul><li>Money is a tangible object used for representation </li></ul><ul><li>Real-life connections </li></ul><ul><li>Make connection between similarity of names </li></ul><ul><li>Four quarter make a whole dollar </li></ul><ul><li>Four quarter notes make a whole note </li></ul>
