To some, mathematics is cold and austere. To others (with probably some overlap), mathematics has little connection with the non-visual arts. But, luckily, some disagree with all of this...and are willing to prove it.
The web site allpoetry.com offers poetry written with a mathematics theme. More than forty-five examples are available, with titles such as:
Be forewarned that a few of the poems use quite strong language.
- Algebra Can't Explain Length When Feelings Are Included
- Math Homework
- Humble Pi
- Potential Hazard of Advanced Mathematics
- Cat in the Math
- Mathematical Equation Went Wrong
- The Golden Section
- Prime Time
So, why not write some mathematics poetry yourself...or have your students write some. If you send me the results, I can possibly post them!
