Some think that math’s just too mental,
and feel math’s the opposite of gentle.
But to them I say nay,
mathematics? Hooray!
I see it, like pi, transcendental.

Great post. I now am writing math limericks and getting great reactions from both math people and non-math people. A lot of fun! Thank you. Again another great post!!

Reblogged this on Unplugged Creations.

ROTFLMAO! But I think you meant “plane,” not “plain” in the first limerick.

If the domain is a plane, shouldn’t it be g of (x,y) equals c?

Not if referring to the land form? That’s how I read it, but it would work either way ðŸ™‚

Great post!

This is FANTASTIC – I wish I’d thought of this to while away the hours in class oh so many years ago!!!

Amazing post â˜º

Here are some, which you inspired me to write:

Two circles surrounding a square

Was more than the poor thing could bear.

It made itself fetal

â€˜Til planar was hedral.

Cylindrical nets are a snare!

Isometry! Great celebration!

But tragedy followed elation,

When off of the grid

The image got slid.

The pre-image â€” Lost in translation.

A circle can hardly afford

To argue with segments, good Lord!

When a disc meets a line

It is far more refined

When instead it is seeking a chord.

Love this!!! I’m an English teacher but I’m going to share this with my math teacher friends

Love love this.

So happy to have found it.

Best of all, now I know how to pronounce Godel. I never would have guessed that rhymed with hurdle.

The more I read this, the more I enjoy!!

There once was a circular guy,

With a radius long as his thigh,

He went to the shop

And went for a chop

And receive a large blueberry pie!
