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.
