Recharge your passion for math as you explore the math behind popular music with peers and artists

“Music is all about patterns and relationships. By showing these on a circular number line, we discovered math and music are deeply connected.” Shaun Elder, MathBeat co-creator

In a MathBeat workshop, teachers collaborate with peers and artists to brainstorm learning activities inspired by meaningful math-music connections. Schools can choose which math concept they want to explore, from fractions to financial literacy to common factors and much more.

Workshops are offered in three formats: virtual (60-90 minutes), half day on-site, and full day on-site.

  • In the 60-90 minute session, teachers explore one set of resources, discuss the math they see, and brainstorm ways to extend the learning
  • In the half day session, teachers also develop one of their ideas into a full learning activity.
  • In the full day session, teachers also produce resources such as short videos documenting the activity, and share and discuss their work.
