Math Poems

Publication Date: 2013-02-24

Elementary teacher par excellence Sarah Puglisi went to a Math training in Accelerated Math, which included a math term dictionary. Sarah says she got lost inside and was inspired to write some poems. They are wonderful.

Her daughter Sylvia, a math and science teacher, responded with some math poems of her own, inviting her students to try their hand at math poems, too.

Go to Sarah's Facebook page for the rest, Asymptotes through Zero.



I am asymptotic, alas
So far, as you can see, it's asymptomatic
But I note
That nothing quite reaches
Where it is supposed to go,
My intentions fall short,
The psychiatrist I consulted
Suggested lowering the bar
But it's still missing the mark.
