This would help our society because our community would produce children who were more prepared for a higher education because of music’s ability to enhance one’s ability to perform well in school. The information that was received will attempt to find out if different types of music have different effects on the brain and if yes what type is the most beneficial.

Methods For this experiment the following materials were needed to gather the most accurate information: • Math worksheets • Pencil • Stop watch • Phone • Headphones/speaker • Music: Rock, Pop, Classical • Ten participants 40 Math worksheets are needed to conduct this experiment with ten participants. Each worksheet has twelve problems in each row and each row is alternating between addition and subtraction. The pencils are needed because the participants need something to wright with. Each time the test is taken the participant have 30
