Some Limericks

A graduate student at Trinity
Computed the square of infinity.
But it gave him the fidgits
to put down the digits,
so he dropped math and took up divinity.

'Tis a favorite hobby of mine
A new value of pi to assign
I would fix it at three
For it's easier, you see
Than 3.14159

I used to think math was no fun
'Cause I couldn't see how it was done
Now Euler's my hero
And I now see why zero
Equals e+1

An Idea: Why not have your students write some mathematical limericks and then send them in for inclusion on this web site?
