**ELA Component**

In this PBL project, I have chose to write a song for Algebra, explaining what does ratio mean and explain it.

Ratio is a term that describes the comparison of two quantities by division. Ratios could also be solved by proportions, which is a statement that two ratios are absolutely similar.

Did you know that we use ratios in real life? Well, it's true.

We use ratios on all kinds of things: We use it to find out which item is cheaper in ounces or in pounds, we use it for cooking recipes (1 part water, two parts flour), and with height/weight (Someone is 170 pounds would be fat if they are 5 feet tall, but not if they are 6 feet tall . . . it would be the height: weight ratio).

Seriously, there are a million uses for ratios, I could go on all day, every day: Taxes, sales, engineering designs for buildings/cars, etc. etc. etc. . . .

And of course, music IS in Math (hence my title: "Music Is In Math").

Mathematics and Music play quite different roles in society, however, they are more closely related to each other than they can commonly perceived to be.

For many people, like me, mathematics is like an enigma. Characterized by the impression of numbers and calculations taught at school, and it is often accompanied by feelings of rejections and disinterest, and it is believed to be strictly rational, abstract, cold and soulless.

Music, on the other hand, really DOES have something to do with emotion, with feelings, and with life. Music is present in all daily routines. Everyone has sung a song, pressed a key on a piano, blown into a flute, and therefore made music. It is something people can interact with, it is a way of expression and a part of everyone's existence.
