Children’s Poetry #3

One of my favourites today.

It’s a dedication to my most loved subject at school. I hope the adoration, reverence and passion I have for this subject truly comes across and that I have done it justice. 

I call this masterpiece,

  1. Nice poem. πŸ™‚

    While I love math since I can remember, I have a great hatred of math as a school subject ’cause in my experience, the way they taught it was so boring. They emphasize memorization over immersion, which is stupid.

    Yes, indeed, no one cares if x is equal to y if there is no context behind it.

  2. Perfect! That’s exactly how I feel about math. (Don’t get me started on logs and imaginary numbers. Or trigonometry. Yikes!)

    I had a math teacher who thought he was so funny. He gave me a Q on one test and a Z on another. Told me E, F, G… all the way to my grades just weren’t low enough. On the Z paper, when we were going over the answers, I showed him one that he’d marked wrong that was actually right. He said it didn’t make a dent in my letter grade, so he didn’t need to bother changing it. So not cool.

  4. Maths is truly a mathsterpiece. Sorry, couldn’t resist. You hated math? I suppose next you are going to tell us you hated chemistry! I really love how you put your poems on a background. It certainly catches the eye and make people more readily want to read. At least that’s the case for me. I can’t wait to see the next one.

  5. This was me as a kid, too, and me all the way through college/university, lol! I still can’t fathom why I needed to learn any math beyond percentages. My teachers always used to tell me that I’d need things like geometry and algebra a s an adult, and that I wouldn’t always have a calculator with me which was why I needed to learn it. Now I realize that’s just stuff math teachers said so that they’d have a job, lol!
