Play My Math (PMM) is an educational game aiming to support the sense-making of abstract mathematical concepts through music. In PMM, students learn to use arithmetic and introductory algebra involving integer numbers and fractions to write, read, and make music without musical notation. From the students’ perspective, the game is about solving mathematical puzzles to keep composing and performing music.
