1) The apps designated "Assigned Melodies" (or "Assigned Rhythms") are to be used in conjuction with the music theory workbook. The clef, key signature, time signature, starting notes and numbers of measures are given in the workbooks.
2) The apps designated "Supplemental Melodies" (or "Supplemental Rhythms") can be used without reference to the workbooks. The clef, key signature, time signature, starting notes, and numbers of measures are shown in the main interface of these apps (shown below).
