"A One and a Two..." -- Math and Music

Everyone knows that making music is inseparably connected with numbers.

A new documentary, "Appassionato: A Mathematical History of the Piano," aims to tell the story of famous musicians and scientists who tried to create the "perfect harmony." The film is a Kickstarter Project by Michael LaPointe.

Follow the link for a preview of the project, and make a pledge to help its production while there.

This website describes the importance of mathematics and many rewarding career opportunities available to students who study mathematics.
