Mathematics in Music and Games (by Soha Rizvi)

Posted on

During the videos I learnt that mathematics was used to discover music
and is used to play music. I also learned that many games are played
on geometric shapes. This relates to things I already know because I
knew that chess is a game of mathematical strategy. It was surprising
to find out that mathematics is the music of the mind and music is the
mathematics of the heart. Also I found it surprising to find out that
all optical instruments were created through maths. It was difficult
to understand what it means when it said that a keyboard is divided
into 12 equal parts and that is linear algebra. It was also difficult
to understand what it meant when it said that Pythagoras discovered
that the octave had a ration of 2:1. #exploremaths
