The demand for math and science skills in our technology-driven world is at a premium, and yet U.S. students continue to lag behind many other industrialized countries in these areas. This book, based on studies conducted on 8000 elementary school-aged children, proposes that not only is there a relationship between music and math comprehension, but that music can be utilized to heighten higher brain function and improve math skills. The enclosed CD-Rom includes (1) a recording of Allegro con spirito from Sonata for Two Pianos in D Major (K. 448), by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, performed by Murray Perahia and Radu Lupu, courtesy of Sony ClassicalTM, and (2) a descriptive interactive version of S.T.A.R.TM (Spatial-Temporal Animation Reasoning) software program. While this book's discussion of the breakthroughs in understanding of spatial-temporal reasoning abilities will be of particular interest to neuroscientists and cognitive researchers, the book is also accessible to parents and educators.
* Presents the theory that music exercises higher brain function and can enhance math comprehension
* Details how music training coupled with special-temporal reasoning (thinking in pictures) can dramatically impact a child's ability to understand and master math
* Includes an interactive CD-ROM with math games

Explains the brain's connection between math and music, and includes an interactive CD-ROM to help tap into this relationship to improve students comprehension of math topics.From the Publisher:
"Can music make my kid smarter?" This question has been discussed in the scientific community and the popular media since Dr. Shaw and his research team published their findings in 1993 (later dubbed the "Mozart effect"), showing a direct link between listening to music and a subsequent improvement in spatial-temporal ability. Shaw's studies have been published in Nature, Neurological Research, and many other top scientific journals. He has been interviewed in such popular media as the Chicago Tribune, Parade Magazine, and on television news magazines for his expertise in this area. Keeping Mozart in Mind represents the first time the full story of how music enhances learning has been told, and it is written in a format that is useful for scientists, educators, and interested laypersons alike.
