This minicourse was prepared for use with secondary physics students in the Dallas Independent School District and is one option in a physics program which provides for the selection of topics on the basis of student career needs and interests. This minicourse was aimed at providing students with a knowledge of the technical descriptions of music, the differences between music and noise, and the ways in which various instruments produce sounds. The minicourse was designed for independent student use with close teacher supervision and was developed as an ESEA Title III project. A rationale, behavioral objectives, student activities, and resource packages are included. Student activities and resource packages involve defining noise and music, taping sounds and noises, investigating careers in music, learning the vocabulary of sound and music, investigating vibrating strings, air columns and surfaces, exploring the role of temperature in sound transmission and making a noise pollution tape.
