Jazz and Math: Improvisation Permutations

Students observe that there are myriad combinations of rhythms to choose from when improvising jazz and blues music, and recognize that while the variations seem infinite, they are in fact finite. They notate a 12 bar blues progression using a different combination of notes and rhythms for each of the 12 bars, and then perform it on a keyboard or virtual piano online.

Lesson Planet has helped me come up with more creative plans. It has provided me ideas to expand on to take my 7th grade math students deeper into the concepts.
