## Using Music in the Classroom to Educate, Engage and Promote Understanding

In a day when activities and education methods get replaced year after year with the "next big thing," music will remain a constant to which every student (year after year) will form a connection.

## Graph a Linear Equation - MUSIC VIDEO

An educational video made for Algebra students learning how to graph linear equations.

Found this video created by a teacher to teach linear equations and was going to use it in my class to explain the concept of lines and y-intercepts but didn't find the time to. This video is great becuase it shows how to graph linear equations and also teaches the concept of comparing slopes for parallel and perpendicular lines.

## The Art + Brain Files: An Introduction to Neuro-Aesthetics

This is all about, in a word, perception.

Neuroaesthetics is an emerging field of study haunted by interdisciplinary practitioners who all have one thing in common: they are using new understandings of cognitive science to approach the fine arts. Technologies that were developed to better study the brain are being repurposed in order to study painting, music, literature, and cinema. Some of the most interesting proponents of a neurological approach to art include writers Semir Zeki, Margaret Livingstone, Oliver Sacks, Jonah Lehrer, VS Ramachandran, Walter Murch, and programs like RadioLab.

Neuroaesthetics gives us an opportunity to reframe classical and contemporary art. Classical artists may not have known the exact science of perception, but intuitively understood how the brain perceives the world. Some contemporary artists are taking advantage of recent breakthroughs in neuroscience and applying it directly to their work. Painters like Cézanne and Mondrian had an intuitive sense of how the brain works; contemporary artists like Nathan Cohen and Tatsuo Miyajima have had exposure to cognitive science and apply it directly to their work. In the coming posts, I’ll explore both of these tracks. Imaging devices like MRIs and eye-tracking are allowing us to study the circuitry of the brain in much greater resolution and depth than ever before. Now, we have a means to peer directly into the brain in a way where, previously, we could only guess.

However, with new tools come new responsibilities.

## Music in class can enhance learning | United Federation of Teachers

Let music into your elementary school classroom! I find that bringing music into my daily routine can create a sense of community, ease transitions and simply lighten the mood or bring energy back into a long day.
Stacey Tamai's comment, May 3, 2013 7:57 PM
During my summer camp we use music in many different ways. My favorite is in the afternoon when we transition from returning from a fieldtrip and everyone is tired and needs a little down time to just relax. Music definitely helps control the mood of the children.
Kandace Mangold's comment, May 4, 2013 10:14 PM
I loved the classes I had in middle school that played music, It kept me relaxed if the assignment was hard.

## NCTM article Sum of songs: Making mathematics less monotone!

The Sum of songs article written by Lawrence Mark Lesser provides great insite as to how music helps students become more engaged in math classrooms. The article was published in May 2000 by the National Council of Teacher of Mathematics volume 93 issue 5 of Mathematics Teacher.  Lesser dicusses how songs for mathematics can be created using existing popular songs, by using raps, or by creating new lyrics to old tunes. Using songs in mathematics not only engages students in learning but it also motivates them as well as helps with mnuemonics. Lesser provides several examples of songs that could be used in math and notes that even a teacher without mucisianship can integrate songs into their classrooms.  He states, "When their teachers model creative risk-taking by bringing songs or even songwriting into mathematics class, students may give themselves permission to strive for broader and higher levels of mathematics achievement."  The benefits of using song in math far out weight the embarassment a teacher may get from incorporating song into their classroom.

## Georgia Math Teacher Jams With Students.

Middle School teacher jams with students while preparing for state test (CRCT)

Via Kelly Coble
Katiebelle Wheelock's insight:

This teacher engages all of the students in such an amazing way! By using a song and dance about math the students are learning about mode, median, and range and in a fun and exciting way.

Kelly Coble's curator insight,

This video is about range and measures of central tendencies (mean, median, mode). Students in this classroom are very enthusiastic while they recall the meaning of mean, median, mode, and range using chants.

Here are the chants that they go through:

"Mode means most"

"Median means middle, order first then find the middle number"

"Range subtract the lowest from the highest number"

After hearing each of these chants I cannot even get them out of my head so I am sure students will not be able to either.  I may use this as a short review for mean, median, mode and range.

## How the Arts Unlock the Door to Learning | Edutopia

By Mariko Nobori

"What do Mars and modern dance have to do with each other? How do you connect fractions with Andy Warhol? At Wiley H. Bates Middle School, in Annapolis, Maryland, the answer is arts integration. Every teacher there is committed to weaving the arts and standard curricula together to create a richer and more lasting learning experience for their students.

"Arts integration goes beyond including art projects in class; it is a teaching strategy that seamlessly merges arts standards with core curricula to build connections and provide engaging context. For example, in a science classroom you might see students choreographing a dance using locomotor and nonlocomotor movements to demonstrate their understanding of rotation versus revolution of the planets (PDF). In a math class, you might see students learning fractions by examining composition in Warhol's Campbell's soup paintings.

"(See more arts-integrated lesson plans from Bates.)"

## Music Classroom: Enabling Highly Challenged Learners with iPad

"Like nothing else before it, the iPad has provided a means to involve even these students in music making activities that help develop motor skills, attention span, ability to focus and cognition. In developing these all important skills, students can also become a part of a group that is creating something together, thereby learning how to interact with their peers."
