A limerick by JoBeth O'Neal and Eve Gillespie

There once was a square

Who took a dare

To learn about proofs and theorems

He knew he shouldn't fear 'em

But if he memorized the formulas he knew he would get there.

**Shape Rhyming Game**

**By Angela Buraglio & Corrie McCall**

Who didn’t think it was fair,

That the circle had pretty hair.

Along came some triangles,

That wore pretty gold bangles,

And their hair was all tangled.

His first name was Llyod,

That all the shapes would avoid.

No shape is lame,

When you play the shape rhyming game!

A Tale of Two Parallels

by Erica Hayes & Maria Jarrell

On one fine bright and sunny day

Two parallels went out to play.

They liked to run in one straight line,

But one of them began to whine.

“I like you a whole lot,” she said,

With no more breath and face bright red.

He said, “Oh wow! I like you too!

I think this date is overdue!”

So on their date they merrily went,

But neither one was quite content.

They really wanted to hold hands, you see.

But “NO Touching!” is the parallel decree.

“Oh me! Oh my! I’ve got a plan!”

Said the parallel named Jan.

If we marry we can touch

And I would like that very much!

So off to Vegas went the two.

They honeymooned in great Peru.

There’s only one small problem now…

They’re attached for life! Those silly vows.

Perpendiculars they’ll be forevermore,

Right angles? Yes. They now have four.

So parallels, just quit complaining.

Having right angles takes lots of training.

Appreciate your “no touch” life,

Cause’them right angles… all they do is cause strife.

Just learn to love what makes you YOU!

Whether perpendicular, parallel, or a blue kangaroo!

All About Pi (Limerick)

By Erin Hayes & Katie King

^{th},

Always in sync

I’m celebrated,

Not hated,

A circle problems’ connecting link.

Geometry Class

By Danielle Abee and Erin Robertson

My math class talked about a ray.

Even though it wasn’t sunny outside

Our class went on a rollercoaster ride.

Mr. Miller related our trip to right angles

Then we talked about isosceles triangles.

And taught me all about pie.

Not the kind you eat on a plate.

More like the stuff some kids hate.

Pie R squared is now what I know.

I have to if I don’t want my grade to be low.

The next I learned about isosceles, right, and scalene triangles.

Then Pythagorean Theorem is what my class talked about.

As for what I understand, I have some doubt.

All in all I enjoy math class…

Except on the day I measured mass!

Geometry Beats

By Jennifer Cantwell and LeAnn Wood

Telling them apart is a matter of degree

The congruent angles they form are just fine

Just subtract the known angle from one hundred and eighty degrees

Just square the radius and multiply by Pi!

CIRCLE

By Jennifer Cantwell and LeAnn Wood

**C**ircumference is the length around

**I**n donuts and wheels, circles abound

**R**adius is half the diameter

**C**ircles are easily made using your protractor

**L**arge and small,

**E**ntrancing us all, circles!
