On my Mind
On My Mind: Turning the Mathematics Classroom into an Intellectual Playground through Poetry

John Hammett III 

November 2007, Volume 13, Issue 4, Page 195


Poems as a form of mathematical endeavor for middle school students. This short-story-like piece of fiction references historic examples of mathematics poems, provides illustrations by middle school youth, and offers instructional suggestions for classroom implementation, as well as two poem problems. On My Mind is a regular department of Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, in which authors have the independence to choose a topic that they feel would be helpful in sharing with readers.
