Math Articles

I came across a few articles on math education that I think are quite interesting. The first one is entitled Mathematicians Make Three-Dimensional Images of Music. Imagine a "geometrical technique for mapping out music in coordinate space." The music of The Beatles is even analyzed! "The new techniques reveal fascinating differences between rock and classical music, and even between Paul McCartney and John Lennon." Of course, growing up in the 1960's as an avid Beatles fan, I find this fascinating!

The second article I found is entitled Why the Best Math Curriculum Won’t Be a Textbook. This article explains how digital curricula could change math learning on a large scale.

Happy Reading!
