In this lesson, students examine the mathematics behind sound by identifying four mathematical variables that define the particular quality of a sound by closely analyzing the sound of four different musical instruments. Students use mathematics to compare and contrast the amplitude, envelope, frequency, and spectrum of each of the four sounds, thereby coming to a better understanding of what physical phenomena contribute to an instrument’s unique sound.
