Melody of Functions and Graphs: Improving Senior Secondary Mathematics Students' Understanding of the Concept of Function by the Integration of Mathematics and Music
MetadataShow full item record
This paper describes a study involving the integration of mathematics and music applied to improve senior secondary students’ understanding of the concept of function. The study has used the framework of the post-positivist paradigm, action research design, multiple research methods, experimental- and control-groups, pre-test and post-test, and has considered nine author-developed analogies between mathematics and music. The findings suggest that integration of mathematics and music makes a statistically significant difference in students’ understanding of function.

North, Adrian; Hargreaves, David; Hargreaves, J. (2004)The value of music in people’s everyday lives depends on the uses they make of it and the degree to which they engage with it, which are in turn dependent on the contexts in which they hear it. Very few studies have ...
Self-to-stereotype matching and musical taste: Is there a link between self-to-stereotype similarity and self-rated music-genre preferences?Lonsdale, A.; North, Adrian (2017)Musical taste is believed to function as a social "badge" of identity that might develop according to a process of "self-to-stereotype matching". For this reason, individuals were expected to like musical styles that are ...
