MATHEMATICKLES is a book of math poems--words arranged in mathematical equations to create poetry. This is a concept I had never heard of before, and I absolutely love it, so I wanted to share it today. I would have had SO much fun with this when I was teaching!
A big THANK YOU to my young friends Oliver and Sophie, who wrote several of their own math poems for me to share today. Take a look at Oliver and Sophie's wonderful poetry below, and then try writing your own poetic equations--I will be trying this fun new format soon!
sand + pail + shovel = sandcastle
lilypad = 1/2 lily + 1/2 pad
chrysalis x time = butterfly
maple keys sugar
x wind + ants
I'll bet that was a fun class!ReplyDelete
I loved the sugar plus ants equals disaster. Thanks for sharing the math poems.
Celebrate you and your love of people.
Never Give Up
