Yr9 Super Learning Day
On Sunday, Year 9 students had their second Super Learning Day of the academic year. This time students had the opportunity to experience the links between mathematics and music. Students were introduced to a variety of links before embarking on their project for the day. Students were placed in groups and calculated pitches based on the Pythagorean scale.
Using the knowledge of pitches and its correlation to lengths of pipe, students then created all the tones necessary to perform a song. After a brief rehearsal period, students were able to perform their songs on the instruments they created. It was an exciting and engaging day for all the teachers and students.
