Students studying transformations of trigonometric functions may learn formulas associated with period and frequency without developing an understanding of the concepts themselves. In this article, the authors present a task that uses arts integration in the form of sound waves to help students explore the relationship between period and frequency. Students are guided through a task of generating a ringtone for a smartphone that blends music, maths, and technology. Links to worksheets and a… CONTINUE READING
