One activity of our project was creating math poems. Here are the best examples of student’s work.

If You don’t wish to waste your money,
You gotta learn how to count, Honey,
You will learn to calculate discounts while shopping,
So your expenses will never be jaw-dropping 🙂
You will get more for the same amount of money,
So you will buy more presents for your dad and mommy 🙂

Maths – the Queen of wisdom and knowledge,
Who will not envy You,
You might be difficult to understand,
Yet, You often hear the words “I love You”.
Those who will become friends with Mathematics,
Will never regret it, Never find calculations problematic 🙂

Julia Zaleska, Poland

I think about math,
when I go to bath.
I think about Pi,
when I eat the pea.
I think about numbers,
when I wear my trainers.
I think about counting,
when outside is snowing.
I think about square root,
when I eat sweet food.
I think about calculator,
when I wear a respirator.

And finally inspiration from professional mathematician – Tom Lehrer:

That’s Mathematics

Counting sheep
When you’re trying to sleep,
Being fair
When there’s something to share,
Being neat
When you’re folding a sheet,
That’s mathematics!

When a ball
Bounces off of a wall,
When you cook
From a recipe book,
When you know
How much money you owe,
That’s mathematics!

How much gold can you hold in an elephant’s ear?
When it’s noon on the moon, then what time is it here?
If you could count for a year, would you get to infinity,
Or somewhere in that vicinity?

When you choose
How much postage to use,
When you know
What’s the chance it will snow,
When you bet
And you end up in debt,
Oh try as you may,
You just can’t get away
From mathematics!

Andrew Wiles gently smiles,
Does his thing, and voila!
Q.E.D., we agree,
And we all shout hurrah!
As he confirms what Fermat
Jotted down in that margin,
Which could’ve used some enlargin’.

Tap your feet,
Keepin’ time to a beat,
Of a song
While you’re singing along,
With the rest of the guys,
Yes, try as you may,
You just can’t get away
From mathematics!
