In this interactive, students explore the relationship between sound frequencies and the length of pipes on a pan flute. By answering questions about the values of ratios and completing a chart, students are introduced to the concept of an inverse proportional relationship. The accompanying activity helps students explore the mathematical relationships that exist among musical notes and their frequencies. This resource is part of the Math at the Core: Middle School Collection.

Examine sound frequencies and the length of pipes on a pan flute and learn about the concept of an inverse proportional relationship in this interactive from KET’s Scale City.
