Music and Mathematics This presentation was given by a professor from Santa Rosa community college and was also an alumnus of from Sonoma State. This presentation was interesting because it showed how music and math come together. I enjoyed watching the man play his instrument and then explain how the sound comes out of the object. Often people wonder how this sound is produced and this professor did a great job of explaining the basics of how these instruments work. He showed us how all the sound was based on different vibrations and waves. He showed us how each cord works and why it makes different sounds when playing on the same string and you just move your fingers. It is all a math equation. The math equation creates the different cords which produce different sounds.

Unformatted text preview: What I liked about this presentation was that I could relate and calculate most of the math he was doing on the PowerPoint. The presenter was quite clear with what he was trying to get across most of the time. I liked that I could relate to what he was talking about because my friends plays guitar. What I didn’t like were all the graphs because I did not really understand what they were saying. He would talk about a number like it was on the graph but the number he would say I don’t believe was on the graph. I also did not like how he spent very little time explaining the drum. I felt this way because to me the drum is much more interesting and more complex because of the different waves that go across the surface....
