The musical plane II

Designed and produced by the Spanish CoI

This c-unit has been designed by a team of Secondary School teachers of Mathematics and Music, together with education researchers. The main mathematical content addressed is the study of the line and piecewise-defined linear functions, its elements and a variety of their representations. This content is related to music, representing points in a musical plane and analyzing the influence of the elements of a line on its musical representation. The c-unit Musical Plane is structured in three parts:

  1.  The main objective of part 1 is to get used to the musical plane and to find out its structure. There is an analogy between the Cartesian plane and the musical plane.
  2. The second part focuses on the understanding of a line with multiple representations such as the ones offered by the musical plane, the Cartesian plane or its algebraic representation.
  3. The   third   part   introduces   different   patterns   one   can   find   in   a   melody   and   its   mathematical representation. Different piecewise-defined functions are studied and listened
