Music Theory Knowledge and Its Correlation with Grades
Transcript of Music Theory Knowledge and Its Correlation with Grades
Highest and Lowest Test Scores
*When we hear music our frontal and temporal lobe start processing the music. It figures out pitch, rhythm and melody.
The temporal lobe is how you comprehend meaningful speech.
The frontal lobe is how you problem solve, it controls language
and movement. *
OUR BACKGROUND and RESEARCH
Music vs. Study Hall; Higher Averages

New Providence Middle School, New Providence, NJ
Our team of scientists have decided to conduct an experiment to decide if our assumptions were correct.
We predict that students in the music program will have higher averages in mathematics along with better scores on our prepared tests.
So, What are we actually doing?
"A new study from the Kaiser Family Foundation found that young people age 8 to 18 spend an average of 7 hours and 38 minutes a day consuming media, 2 hours 19 minutes of which is spent listening to music."
After asking the guidance counselors, we received overall averages for mathematics and language arts in the music program and in study hall. Coincidentally, the numbers in each subject for both groups were exactly the same.
The students in the music program had a higher average grade in language arts and math. We had some biases too and we tried to minimize them to our best extent. * They also scored higher on the test we made. The study hall participants scored much lower than the music participants. Our predictions were right.
These graphs show the highest and lowest test scores for each class

Test Average Scores
We prepared a test to examine the students' knowledge of mathematics, language arts, and music theory
1. Received Grade Averages
We received first set of data, the averages in math and language arts, from Mrs. McGeechan. We were only able to have overall averages for each subject.
2. Comparing the Data
Oddly, the grades in each subject for the classes were the same.
Music Students had a consistent average of 92 and study hall students had an average of 83.
3. Preparing a Test
Not being able to do much with 4 pieces of data, we prepared a test for our chosen students to take. This consisted of standarized test practice questions for language arts, math and music theory.
We took all of our data and organized it into graphs.
How Did We Receive
We went through multiple steps to find the data for our experiment.
All Test Scores
We also created a table of each test score in each class and a graph exhibiting the range of the test scores per class.
