Hi, I'm Elizabeth Hamilton, a retired teacher and principal. If your students are like mine were, many shudder at the thought of mathematics. "Don't worry," we encourage, "even Einstein failed math in fourth grade." Teachers who say that do not know that Albert Einstein never failed math at any grade level. In fact, Einstein though math was fun! Dr. Madeline Frank's book, "Musical Notes on Math" dispels the myth, and shows how music makes learning fun -- for both your Einstein and not-so Einstein. Picture a room full of fourth grade math students. Not one of them is an Einstein, and you have to teach them fractions. You know from experience that fourth graders do not like fractions. This year, you do not tell them the myth that Einstein also hated fractions in fourth grade. Instead, you make them love fractions. You begin by asking your students to clear their desks. As they do that, you start beating a clear rhythm on your desk. You ask students to beat the rhythm with you. You have fun with different rhythms for a few minutes. Then you gradually introduce rhythms that teach fractions. Dr. Frank shows you how, with easy-to-follow diagrams. Her book leads you through rhythmical teaching at various elementary grade levels, demonstrating rhythms for every aspect of mathematics. Your students will use music as Einstein eventually did -- to carry their thinking processes to success.
