Today was a day that I should have written my post earlier in the day. I have this poem about smoke and ash in my head that is figuring itself out. I was going to work more on it until the news at 4:50 PM which announced the passing of Judge Ruth Bader Ginsberg. I am gutted. What more 2020, what more? I have no words.
My invitation is to stop by next Friday, September 25 when I host Poetry Friday. Consider a poem about bravery or a math story problem.I
NATIONAL MATH STORYTELLING DAY #MathStorytellingDay is September 25
A little history. It was created in 2009. It’s a day to tell stories using math.
The fourth Friday of September is #NationalBRAVEDay. September 25th is that Friday.
This began in 2017 to uplift and honor the women who make up feel brave.
How about the theme of poems that tell a math story or honor a brave woman might be fun.
Need help with some mathematical poetry types?
