We all know that Zach is a Ferret,

He's so much smarter than a pellet (?)

But show him bad spelling

And then he'll start yelling,

(Good luck finishing that off )

Why did the vector cross the road?

It wanted to be normal.

Boy let me tell you what:

I bet you didn't know it, but I'm a fiddle player too.

And if you'd care to take a dare, I'll make a bet with you.

There once was a person called Mathsy

Who didn't like Sciency

He called for a fight

And he was right

He won the fight with Sciency

A Dozen, a Gross and a Score,

plus three times the square root of four,

divided by seven,

plus five times eleven,

equals nine squared and not a bit more.

A graduate student from Trinity

Computed the cube of infinity;

But it gave him the fidgets

To write down all those digits,

So he dropped math and took up divinity.

There once was a number named pi

Who frequently liked to get high.

All he did every day

Was sit in his room and play

With his imaginary friend named i.

There once was a log named Lynn

Whose life was devoted to sin.

She came from a tree

Whose base was shaped like an e.

She's the most natural log I've seen.

A challenge for many long ages

Had baffled the savants and sages.

Yet at last came the light:

Seems old Fermat was right--

To the margin add 200 pages.

Integral z-squared dz

from 1 to the cube root of 3

times the cosine

of three pi over 9

equals log of the cube root of 'e'.

No, I got them from elsewhere...and I enjoyed reading them, so I wanted to share with you all

Here are two more.......

If inside a circle a line

Hits the center and goes spine to spine

And the line's length is "d"

the circumference will be

d times 3.14159

If (1+x) (real close to 1)

Is raised to the power of 1

Over x, you will find

Here's the value defined:

2.718281...
