I recently read this article. I am a firm believer that the maths and music go hand in hand. (And, my little brother proves my theory perfectly: a few years ago, he finished his doctoral thesis, titled "The Mathematics of Ravel". He based his thesis on the golden proportion and showed its repetition throughout French musician Ravel's music.)
HW posted on "mydsd"
Beginning October 2, 2017, homework will be listed on "myDSD" where your grades are calculated. It will be shown as "practice" which means it does NOT count as part of your actual grade but it is listed to help you and your parents keep on top of your work and make certain you do not have missing "stuff". It will be posted under the heading of "participation points" for 7th graders and under the heading of "listening and participation points" for 8th graders.
As posted on our disclosure: ALL homework must be done AND you need a score of 6 or higher to be allowed to retake concepts.
