Here's a quickie, by me, use it if you want it:

To graph mathmatic knowledge
is a simple calculation.
With addition at the bottom
further up to integration.

The line that charts my learning
isn't straight, as you will see.
My upward move took quite a curve
thanks to geometry.

Then came transcendental functions
and my upward climb was spent.
Until I had a breakthrough
helped by Texas Instrument.

I took a little tangent
for a required humanity.
It was a pain that fried my brain.
asked pi, I answered "Three?"

Now I think I'm back on track.
All sines are in ascession.
I postulate my learning curve's
an infinite progression.

The end
I don't know is ascession is even a word, but I couldn't think of a -sion word that meant upward movement, give me a little while.

Brilliant piece, Tribdog. Your next one was good too.

Float like a butterfly, Sting like triginometry
by Brian Whipple

My fight with mathematics
began when I was only one.
"Take two steps, now take two more"
I could walk to any sum.

My next bout was fractions.
It came with my first brother.
He got half of all my stuff.
Two thirds-when mother had another.

The easiest of all my fights,
and there is no room to bicker,
came when learning lines of force.
Call me the vector victor.

Challenges come from round the world
from lands I'll never see.
I beat alpha and omega and pi.
They're no longer Greek to me.

When calculus stepped toe to toe
a reputation to impress
I knocked it out with suprising ease
I calculate I couldn't calcu-less.

I have a wicked combo
A mix of Ali and Einstein.
I can conquer any concept
just pick a place and name a time.


rereading this I thought of a different final line
You bring your brain, I'll bring mine.
lol, thought of one while I was typing that one. this last one is the best because it goes with the Ali title. so final stanza should be:

I have a wicked combo
A mix of Ali and Einstein
I can conquer any concept in math
'cause I'm the greatest of all time.


It helps if you say the last line in Muhammed Ali's voice: I'm thee greatessst uv all ti-immme.

There was a man called aristotle,
Who once got his tongue stuck in a bottle.
Then he travelled through time,
To find the meaning of rhyme,
and ooh thats why we've became mathematicians.

:(
