The Tree

December 8, 2008

Multiply then divide no power here
Come and add or subtract to your hair
Reduce and evaluate the base
Look an octagon; think of all of the pi you’ll taste
Lift the circumference to the top to reach the numerator
Oh no! The perimeter; back down to the denominator
Now what was the percentage of area in the work of symmetry?
Oh! Order of operation, now I see
Equations aren’t as easy as I thought
If I didn’t have to do graphs that would be so hot
A foot ahead is all I need
Please get me off this factor tree

The initial challenge of this poem, was to use at least 22 math terms. Now being in 8th grade and not a very experience writing; I'd say that this would be a great way to get your thought going.
