To excite, educate and empower students to gain a greater understanding of numeracy using music.
Numeracy with a Spin – Teaching students the daily relevance of numeracy in their lives through hands-on musical learning.
The Math Thru Music (MTM) DJ program combines numeracy with DJing to create the ultimate fun learning experience for all ages. No matter the choice of music, math plays a huge part and the MTM program connects the dots. DJ’s perform under immense pressure and some of that can be relieved through understanding basic mathematics. Our program helps students learn the craft of Djing while strongly building and developing numeracy skills. The creativity in a DJ is determined by their confidence, technique and math skills.
No calculators allowed! Every song ever made has a BPM (Beats Per Minute), which determines the pitch and genre of the song. Using various formulas, students are taught to exercise their problem-solving skills to mix similar or different genres of music. MTM encourages curiosity and creativity while learning to understand mathematics.
