Rock out to a musical demonstration of math involved in constructing rhythms from groups of beats in this video from KQED. In the accompanying classroom activity, students consider how the note durations comprising a measure in 3/4 time relate to fractions that sum to 1. Then, they create and perform their own 3/4 measures comprised of quarter, eighth, and sixteenth notes. To get the most from the activity, students should have experience adding fractions with unlike denominator. This resource is part of the Math at the Core: Middle School Collection.
