Math, Music, and the Mind

Lecture no. 12 from the course: How Music and Mathematics Relate

Math, Music, and the Mind

Taught by Professor David Kung | 48 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Mathematics Courses

Conclude with an eight-part finale, in which you range widely through the territory that connects mathematics, music, and the mind. Among the questions you address: What happens in the brain of an infant exposed to music? Why do child prodigies often excel in the areas of math, music, or chess? And how do creativity, abstraction, and beauty unite music and mathematics, despite being on opposite ends of the arts and sciences?

This may be the finest lecture series by Great Courses. It's a masterpiece combining information with artistry. It can be watched over and over and still give the viewer something new to explore. It's a work of art and can be enjoyed as such or it is a teaching tool and can be used for educational purposes. It is in a class all by itself . All who worked on this should be very proud. Thank you for creating such a wonderful lecture series. Well done.
