During the past 40 years, mathematical music theory has grown and developed in both the fields of music and mathematics. In music pedagogy, the need to analyze patterns of modern composition has produced Musical Set Theory, and the use of Group Theory and other modern mathematical structures have become almost as common as the application of mathematics in the fields of engineering or chemistry. Mathematicians have been developing stimulating ideas when exploring mathematical applications to established musical relations. Mathematics students have seen in Music in Mathematics courses, how their accumulated knowledge of abstract ideas can be applied to an important human activity while reinforcing their dexterity in Mathematics. Similarly, new general education courses in Music and Mathematics are being developed and are arising at the university level, as well as for high school and general audiences without requiring a sophisticated background in either music nor mathematics. Mathematical Music Theorists have also been developing exciting, creative courses for high school teachers and students of mathematics. These courses and projects have been implemented in the USA, in China, Ireland, France, Australia, and Spain.The objective of this volume is to share the motivation and content of some of these exciting, new Mathematical Theory and Music in Mathematics courses while contributing concrete materials to interested readers.

- Combine the merits of flashcards with the ease of using a book.- Compared to traditional boxed flashcards, REA's Interactive Flashcard books include an index, making it easier to locate what's needed.- Each book contains up to 1,000 Q's and A's. Questions appear on one side of each page. The interactive feature allows students to write in their own answers and compare them to the correct answers on the flip side of the page. Blank cards are also included, so users can create their own questions and answers.- Each Flashcard Book measures 5 1/2 x 8 1/4 (14 cm x 21 cm).
REA's Interactive Flashcard books represent a novel approach which combines the merits of flash cards with the ease of using a book. One side of each page includes questions to be answered, with space for writing in one's answers — a feature not usually found on flash cards. The flip side of the same page contains the correct answers, much as flash cards do. United States History 1500-1841 is fully indexed making it easy to locate topics for study. Thanks to the book form, there is no need to look for and fish out appropriate questions from a box and put them back in the proper order, and there is no need to carry around a box of 1,000 flash cards. The book is easier to take along and carry.
