Musical number patterns: the challenge

Learning Material  |  Interactive Lesson

Make music by building up rhythms from two instruments. Make a counting rule that includes a given number. Select the start number and then select a number to count by. For example, include the number 9 in a counting pattern by starting at 1, then count by 4. Describe another counting pattern that includes the same number. Then play all of the sound patterns together to hear your music. This learning object is one in a series of five objects.
1. Students solve number logic problems by creating counting rules to generate particular number patterns.
2. Students discover that different rules can produce the same number pattern.
3. Students associate various representations, including sound, of the same number pattern.
