      Math Poem

       by Danny King, 6th grade 2017


Now once upon a time not long ago

Where people did math and lived life slow

There was a formula

For you to find

The length around a shape

It's outside

This formula was perimeter

Here’s how to solve perimeter

Two times length plus two times width

There you go. ....Now let’s move on with this

Area is the number of units

Inside a shape, and here’s how you do it

It’s just length times width you see

Easy for you, easy for me

Volume’s so easy, it’s almost free

All it is, is area but it’s 3D

The formula is super easy also

Length times width times height

And there you go

That’s the end of our story today

Come back tomorrow, I’ll be here all day
