- Dr. Craig Johnson: Math and Music
All teachers know that pattern recognition is a valuable skill in learning mathematics. Identifying sequences of notes on the staff that result from musical transformations such as reflections and inversions can be used to introduce interesting notions in higher algebra. Sets of inversions found in works by classical composers such as Beethoven, Mozart, and Bach can be given a structure that leads in a natural way to the definition of a group. This talk explores these connections of math to music.
