This resource is a web page containing a challenging problem solving task that requires an understanding of ratios and logarithms. It explains how intervals such as an octave corresponds to a particular ratio of string lengths which produce the notes. Two types of tuning based on ratios; The Pythagorean Scale and Just Intonation are introduced. The task involves completing a table of values using logarithms. A 'Getting started' page, printable resource and solution is also available to support the task. This resource is an activity from the NRICH website.
