Friday math movie - Bass guitar design
By Murray Bourne, 07 Nov 2008
The Futures Channel has the motto "Connecting learning to the real world".
There is a series of videos covering real-world applications of math and science topics such as:
- problem solving
- science & technology
Under the "problem solving" heading, I found this overview on the math behind building bass guitars.
[This is a Flash video and probably will not play on your mobile device.]
The Futures Channel also has video resources categorized under the following headings:
- art & music
- business & commerce
- design & architecture
- living & working in space
Well worth a visit: The Futures Channel.
Also, you may be interested in the following applications of math in music:
