A Love Poem for Math

Online Math Tutoring

Christina Sng for Maths@Singapore

The love I’ve had for math

Since I was a child 

Has only grown

Over the years.

Adding makes more,

Subtracting takes away,

Multiplication vastly increases,

Division vastly decreases.

Algebra uses alphabets to calculate.

Geometry uses shapes.

Matrices use arrays of numbers,

Graphs use lines and curves.

Word problems use text to explain.

You still have to turn it into numbers

To solve it. This is as true to real life

As mathematics gets.

There’s a comfort in solving math.

They’re one of the few things in life

We have control over.

They are problems we can solve—

Salve for the difficult days we face.
