Happy Pi Day – Math, Music, and NPR

This morning, on my way to my sabbatical internship at Unboundary, I heard this story on NPR. http://www.npr.org/2011/03/14/134492882/how-to-transform-the-number-pi-into-a-song

I was saddened, a bit, when the interviewee uttered the phrase, “I am a music person, not a math person.” How did he come to compartmentalize himself this way? Why doesn’t he see himself as both? Aren’t they two branches of the same tree? My pursuit of understanding integrated studies will hopefully shed more light on this way of thinking about oneself and one’s learning.
