Music fraction bars, musical notes, musical rests, classical conversations, educational toys
"There is geometry in the humming of the strings, there is music in the spacing of the spheres." — Pythagoras
Though mathematics and #musictheory are not taught together, they share remarkable similarities. Counting, rhythm, patterns and symmetry... All highlight the mathematical magic of music.
Some kids might get music better but struggle in math, whereas for some math is easy but music is alien. By mixing one with another and showing the underlying similarities, we can understand both better. This fraction strips of musical notes does exactly that. They highlight how fraction works using musical notes. They show how each note has a fractional value.
I purposely designed this with the exact same dimensions as my #fractionstrips so it can be used together. The 1/4th bar from the fraction strip is exactly the same as a quarter note in this one. You can find the fraction strips in the shop.
Made of maple (base) and cherry (the strips) for contrast.
