Math and music

Via Music4Kids, a yahoo email group.

We just completed a major update to our Fraction Pie Rhythms activity. It now includes new fractions, new rhythms from Central and South America, and new sounds. The Fraction Pie Rhythms activity connects your knowledge of fractions to musical notes and rhythms. Simply choose your fractions and press play - your fractions will transform into a musical composition you can see and hear! While you're there, click on the Songs button and listen to the Xocopa rhythm from Mexico played on Taiko drums, and the Flintstones played with the sound of water! The activity is free for you and your students. Check it out.
