‘Mathematical poetry ‘is a blog that primarily concerns itself with promoting the use of mathematical equations as expressions for poetic metaphor. When these expressions use visual metaphor in conjunction with mathematic and lexical metaphor we classify this as the genre of mathematical visual poetry – Kaz Maslanka

Math Test Results (Math Jokes)

**Kevin Watters sent me a few math jokes the other day and I thought it may be nice to share them.** ------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is pretty close to being visual mathematical poetry. The student is probably a fine art major and got lost in his/her own thoughts --- why answer the question when you can be creative?

In science one tries to tell people, in such a way as to be understood by everyone, something that no one ever knew before. But in poetry, it’s the exact opposite. —Paul Dirac

Here is a polyaesthetic piece of mathematical visual poetry based on the similar triangles poem titled “LOTTO” The photo was shot in Las Vegas. The inspiration for the piece came while being part of a shared "lotto pot" in an office setting. Watching all of the people fantasizing about winning was fascinating.

The poem can be read multiple ways including the following:

The lotto is to financial fantasy as ogling pornograpy is to sexual fantasy.

-or-

The lotto is to ogling pornograpy as financial fantasy is to sexual fantasy.

You would think the student would get some extra credit for this ... ok maybe not.

Here is a Polyaesthetic piece with a 'Similar Triangles Poem' titled "Freshness"

I have noticed many small mathematical poems on the internet that are in the form of A+B=C . This form is a perfectly legitimate form however, there are times when I think the author intended you to understand it in terms of A*B=C . There is some confusion as to what is the difference between addition and multiplication within the realm of mathematical poetry. I would love to hear anyone try to explain the difference between the two. In the mean time I have posted a piece above that asks that very question.

The piece is titled: “THE QUESTION OF DE CHIRICO” and it poses the question: “Is the image on the right side of the piece equal to the ideas of Baltimore times De Chirico or is the image equal to the ideas of Baltimore plus De Chirico?

I invite anyone to choose between the two statements and explain why and I will post the answers.
