MathTrax

Music Demo:

Start MathTrax and select "Equations".

Graph the equation y^2=1.  It will create two horizontal lines above and below the x axis. If you sonify this graph MathTrax will play these two lines together, like a chord.  Think of the line above the x axis as the treble clef and the line below the x axis as the bass clef.  Can you hear the chord?  Try this one: (y - mx)^2 = c 

Can you think of other equations that would make interesting musical graphs?
