Phil Tulga: Musical Fraction Bars

The Musical Fraction Bars activity connects your knowledge of fractions and length to musical pitch. 

Simply choose your fractions and press play — your fractions will transform into a musical composition you can see and hear!  If you would also like to build a homemade musical instrument that is based on these fractions, check out Phil’s Fraction Tubes activity page.
