Recorder Math

My students need 30 recorders and 30 method books to not only be introduced to music but to help find fun ways to learn math.

My Students

UGH!! Math! This is a typical response from my students. I want to use recorders as an engaging and fun way to introduce math concepts (fractions, division, multiplication). Plus it gives the added benefit of introducing students to music!

My students are low-income, minority students.

They are mostly special education students, who struggle with academics. Math is seen as a bore and a hardship. They do not have hope things will change. Let's give them hope of a changed attitude toward math! They need engaging ways to enter into math-and music is a way to do that.

My Project

I am asking for a class set of recorders and music books. Instrumental music is an area many of my students will never have a chance to experience. Yet, music is a gateway into math that works for many students who do not learn in a traditional way. Giving my students recorders will help not only their math skills, but also introduce them to a wonderful art form.

Give students the gift of music AND the gift of math.

Think about the time when you finally 'got' something you had been struggling with. Let music be this for my students! Let music teach my students math!
