###### COMPANY OVERVIEW

Make Music Count is the new, creative mathematics curriculum for 3rd-9th graders that teaches each lesson through playing songs on the piano.

Each musical note that is played is derived by solving an algebraic equation. Here is a new method teachers can use to excite students about learning mathematics. Mathematics will be seen as fun while also strengthening students understanding of solving algebra equations once they Make Music Count!

### The Problem

Students are intimidated by mathematics to the point where they have lost confidence in the ability to succeed in the subject. This causes low test scores and misdirected fear of mathematics overall.

### The Solution

The Make Music Count curriculum is made to be fun, incorporating songs that students know and love. The musical application to songs on the piano provides a sense of gamification and eliminates fear.
