I am supposed to be presenting a poem in my undergraduate math class, that relates to mathematics. The point of the presentation is to show the beauty of math , and the fun of it ,and also it will help us "appreciate math more" according to my professor! Which I definitely agree with. The poem that I have so far is "the square root of 3" by Dave Feinberg:
I’m sure that I will always be, a lonely number like root three. The three is all that’s good and right, why must my three keep out of sight? Beneath the vicious square root sign, I wish instead I were a nine For nine could thwart this evil trick, with just some quick arithmetic. I know I’ll never see the sun, as 1.7321. Such is my reality, a sad irrationality. When hark! What is this I see, another square root of a three! As quietly co-waltzing by, together now we multiply to form a number we prefer, rejoicing as an integer. We break free from our mortal bonds with the wave of magic wands. Our square root signs become unglued Your love for me has been renewed.
I was hoping to hear other ideas of poems that anyone found interesting and would think are good to share with math enthusiasts! I know this question might be a little off topic, but I feel that I will get the best advice on this forum!
