Algebra And Geometry - Poem by Stanley Cooper

It should come as no big suprise
That Algebra, with all its Xs and Ys
Along with its tasteless inedible PIs
Is the cause of many students demise

A subject students find distressing
Is Algebra with its Ys and its Xing
Along with abstract symbolic excess-ing
Faulted for many a student depressing

Another study that’s not quite a beaut
Is Geometry with its angles acute
Its content considered of ill repute
By students most likely not too astute

Most pupils would rather hang from a noose
Than learn Geometry with its angles obtuse
For low grades they’ve a ready excuse
Their belief Geometry for them has no use

How wrong they are with their thinking so hazy
Blatantly cocksure, more likely just lazy
Most civilized progress is based on reliance
Of Geometry and Algebra, the language of science

    the basic science will never be ignored if teachers make it as humourous and witty as your lines while teaching...interesting one... (Report) Reply
