Musical harmony, melody, and rhythm come from mathematics, dating to antiquity and the discovery that notes sounded together on a stringed instrument are most pleasing when the string lengths are simple ratios of each other. The musical language supports mathematical patterns through harmonic patterns, melodic motives, and rhythm. Harmonic series show up in many areas of applied mathematics. In light of the recent emphasis placed on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) education for our youth, Connections presented a unique opportunity for students, and the public, to experience STEM concepts in a fun and artistic way.
