Math Haiku: Geometry Class
I personally enjoy writing, and as a math teacher I love getting my students writing about math.
One of my favorite writing assignments for students is math-themed haiku. The rigid constraints of haiku make it an easy exercise, it allows students to access and interact with mathematical ideas in a different and creative way, and the elegance and efficiency of the for evoke the character of mathematics itself.
Here are some selections from this year’s Geometry class. Enjoy!
