MATH 110   Homework Assignment #4

Due Thursday, March 15, START of Class

Homework should be turned in at the START OF CLASS. All problem numbers refer to From Music to Mathematics: Exploring the Connections. Unless otherwise indicated, all parts of a problem (e.g., a., b., c., etc.) should be completed. You are encouraged to work on these problems with other classmates, and it is ok to use internet sources for help if it's absolutely necessary; however, the solutions you turn in should be YOUR OWN WORK and written in YOUR OWN WORDS. Be sure to cite any references, websites, Internet sources, etc. that you may have used for assistance with the assignment.

Important: Please list the names of any students you worked with on the top of your assignment.

We are slowed down sound and light waves, a walking bundle of frequencies tuned into the cosmos. We are souls dressed up in sacred biochemical garments and our bodies are the instruments through which our souls play their music.
Albert Einstein (1879–1955)
