LOGO-L> Music & Maths (THE RULE OF FIVE!!!)

The recent calculus reform movement advocated the use of the "RULE OF
FOUR" in exploraning a mathematical concept. Few years ago I worked
with my calculus students using LOGO (At that time I had LOGO under DOS
only). We extended the rule of four to the rule of five where we added
the AUDITORY as excellent way of extendeing the exploration process.
The logo primimitive TONE played a centralk role in exploraing
function concepts.
This approach shoul I believe be considered in all mathematical
activities. Research in this direction is a must!

> Very interesting! Lists to me are vectors. I believe that tone should

be used in all mathematical activities. But I can't see how you used it
and for what. For what I did in fuction concepts, I used tone to
describe the behavior of a function. Is it increasing? Decreasing?
Constant? Continuous? Dos it seem to have a limit? etc

Should it be used with very young children in Number Concepts? It sound
a great idea at least to me!!
