FIUteach performs Mary Had a Little Lamb
FIUteach students perform "Mary had a Little Lamb" using partially filled water bottles to represent the different notes in the song during their Classroom Interactions Course (conducted by an FIUteach student). To create the desired notes, the level of the water in each bottle was determined using Calculator-based Laboratories, microphones, and graphing calculators. Background information supporting the activity is available in an article by one of the instructors and co-Director: Fernandez, M. L. (1999). Making Music with Mathematics. Mathematics Teacher, 92(2), 90-97.
