Hi again folks, and Happy Holidays! :)  Already almost Christmas... huh.  Time flies, most certainly.  And I'm 99.99999999% sure of my A for the class -- given that I only need at 20 on my final to make a 97 for the final class grade, and I'm certain I got a 100 on it, yep, the grade is an A.  Always a nice thing to see. :)

Hi Wanda -

I was the December winner, and received the Amazon gift card in time for Christmas shopping.

It's been a pleasure dealing with you, and I support your math mission and your blog.

Best Regards

Math Limerick

Question: Why is this a mathematical limerick?

( (12 + 144 + 20 + 3 Sqrt[4]) / 7 ) + 5*11 = 92 + 0 .


A dozen, a gross, and a score,
plus three times the square root of four, divided by seven, plus five times eleven, is nine squared and not a bit more.

---Jon Saxton (math textbook author)

Presentation Suggestions:
Challenge students to invent their own math limerick!

The Math Behind the Fact:
It is fun to mix mathematics with poetry.
