Based on research you will conduct, you will submit a written report describing what you have learned about an artist or musician who used mathematics as part of his/her work. The report is due on the last day of the module (Sunday at 11:59pm).
Many musical composers have used mathematics in their compositions. Some artists have created artworks that use or reflect mathematical principles. Research one such composer or artist, and write an essay discussing the role of mathematics in the composer’s music or artist’s art. Make sure you describe the mathematical concepts that are present in the creative work and what you understand about the mathematics. Your paper must be at least one full, single-spaced page long. Include a citation and a link to the source(s) you used.
Make sure to write your essay in your own words, providing citations for any words or ideas you use from other sources. Information about how to avoid plagiarism, including information on free tutoring and using the Grammarly tool, is available on this Excelsior College Library page: Copyright and Avoiding Plagiarism.
Please Note: A specialized grading rubric is used for this assignment. It is different from the rubric used in the Problem Write-Ups assignments in the other modules.
The problem write-ups will comprise 25% of your course grade. Refer to the rubric linked above for grading details.
Compose your work using a word processor (or other software, as appropriate) and save it frequently to your computer. Be sure to check your work and correct any spelling or grammatical errors before you upload it. When you are ready to submit your work, click "Browse My Computer" and find your file. Once you have located your file, click "Open" and, if successful, the file name will appear under the Attached Files heading. Scroll to the bottom of the page and click "Submit."
