### Math Poems 2

I Like Math
I once thought that math was a bore;
Arithmetic gross to the core.
My textbook I tossed;
To tests said, “Get lost!”
And now I like math more and more.

Odd and Even
Zero, two, four, six, eight
Being even is just great.
One, three, five, seven, nine
Being odd is just fine.

Great Distress
When you talk to Math Teacher Zoser
And he gives you a task, don't say 'No, sir'.
To avoid great distress
You should always say 'yes'
For his anger could make you moroser.

To Compute
If ever you want to compute
And don't need to take a square root,
If used with some skill
An abacus will
Show everyone you're astute

The Sphinx
I often have looked at the Sphinx
And have figured out just what she thinks.
She's using her math,
To compute that her bath
Will need water from 10,000 sinks.

Apollonius' Cone
When you cut Apollonius' cone
There's a circle, but it's not alone.
A parabola, new,
A hyperbola, too,
And a perfect ellipse will be shown.
