Poetic Math

A mathematician confided
A Möbius strip is one-sided.
You’ll get quite a laugh
If you cut one in half,
For it stays in one piece when divided.

If you like having fun with language and math, why not get creative and pen your own math limerick?  Send it to limerick@momath.org by May 1 and your poem may be selected for inclusion on a special MoMath webpage in honor of National Limerick Day.  If we receive enough clever submissions, we’ll host an open mic event where you can share your poetic words with others. 

Note that the submission deadline to be considered to read your limerick at the open mic event has passed.  You can still submit limericks through May 1 for consideration to be included on a MoMath webpage.
