Poetry

Poetry + Math = x + y

  
April is both National Poetry Month and Math Awareness Month. While many may think that poetry and math have no connection, the opposite is true. Many researchers and educators have advocated for the benefits of using poems in math instruction.

"Though poetry and math may seem to be unrelated, there are parallels such as rhythmic language and language skills. Reading and writing poetry about math involves students with listening, speaking, reading, and writing in order to develop and demonstrate an understanding of mathematical concepts and relationships." (LaBonty & Danielson, 2004)
