### CI 4030-432 Geometry Poetry

Meet my special friend

Look! he only has 3 sides

My friend, Triangle

Haiku by Liddy Matthews, Sarah Robinson, Adrienne Farmer

All geometric shapes have area

Round or square it's there

Eating a lot will give you more of it.

Always double check your measurements.

Acrostic by Adriana Pardo and Rachel Warriner

Using formulas

Solving for missing angles

Sin, cosine, tangent

Haiku by Krista Byrne and Jessica Duck

Equilateral triangle

Obtuse angles

Measurement

Examples help :-)

Trapezoid

Rectangular prism

Y and x coordinates

Acrostic by Melody R & Abby H.

Square, sphere, hexagon,

Slide, flip, turn, is how we learn,

Graphing x and y

Haiku by Melody R & Abby H.

Geometry is obtuse,

right angles and hypotenuse.

You can always make a graph,

It's lots of fun when you're doing math.

Geometry is fun throughout the seasons,

especially with proofs and reasons.

It's always so abstract

You can add or subtract.

So remember when in class make sure to always share

especially when dealing with circles and squares

Rhyming poem by Emily Nicholson and Will Price

Acrostic by Caroline Keigher and Emilie Schaefer

Math is fun for everyone

Whether you're a boy or a

girl.

Numbers and lines, it happens all the time.

Math is all over the world.

Limerick by Caroline Keigher and Emilie Schaefer

It is all around

Degree, shapes, theorems combined

Study hard and succeed

Haiku by Keara and Ashley

We all need math

It helps us down our path

Don't feel it wrath

Just take a bath

And dream about your math

Rhyming poem by Keara and Ashley

Using angles, curves, and lines

Creating shapes and signs

Learning many ways

To prove theorems every day.

All of this can be

a part of geometry!

Attempting! Rhyming Poem by Ashlyn and Erica

Geometry had me confused,

I wasn't very amused.

It took a lot of time,

drawing all the lines.

The teacher helped me out,

and now I no longer pout.

Now I do it every day,

Using the shapes in many ways.

now that I know how it's done,

geometry is very fun.
