The Joy of Shapes
Christina Sng for Maths@Singapore
You’ve taught me to count,
You’ve taught me to measure.
You’ve taught me how to calculate
The insides of circles and triangles.
Let’s not forget the marvelous insides
Of squares and rectangles.
They are only two-dimensional.
If you want to count sides,
We have the pentagon, hexagon,
Heptagon, octagon, nonagon, decagon!
Now, three-dimensional shapes are fun.
They are shaped like us!
We have cones, cubes, cuboids,
Cylinders, pyramids, and spheres.
Do you know a doughnut
Is called a torus?
There are many more shapes
Waiting to be measured
And even more waiting
To be appreciated!
Celebrate shapes today!
