 This is Scientific American 60 second Science, I am Sophie Bushwick, got a minute?

 
Stuck on a tricky1 math problem? Start clapping. Grade school kids who learned about fractions through a rhythm-and-music-based curriculum2 outperformed their peers3 in traditional math classes. The work is in Educational Studies in Mathematics. 
 
Fractions let you divide up a measure of music into notes of varying length. For example, one four-beat measure could contain a single whole note held for all four beats, two half notes of two beats apiece, four quarter notes of a beat each, and so on. In the Academic Music program, based on the Kodaly method of musical education, students clap, drum and chant to memorize the lengths of musical notes—then solve problems in which fractional notes must add up to a full measure of music.
 
Sixty-seven students participated in the study. Half did math problems using the Academic Music system. And after six weeks, the students in the music program averaged 50 percent higher on tests than did the kids in regular math class. Fractions create a solid foundation for further math education—so mastering them is music to educators’ ears.
 
Thanks for the minute, for Scientific American 60 second Science, I am Sophie Bushwick.
