A lot of learning can happen at the junction of math and music, according to music teacher (and blogger) Ruth Catchen. From learning fractions to gaining an understanding of space and proportion, students can pick up many mathematically relevant skills from their music studies. "The arts inspire creativity, self-expression, critical thinking and problem solving," she writes. "It is an opportunity not only for students to open the door to see how things are made, why things happen, and discover another way to do something, but also to experience in real life and action how mathematical concepts and functions relate to music in a tangible way."
