16, Dan Mcquillan

Journal of Humanistic Mathematics

This 15 word poem suggests that the reader count the words of the poem. Since every line has half as many words as the previous line, and since the poem urges the reader to keep counting forever, one imagines a total of 16 words.


Newton’S Third Law In Karmic Warfare, Kazmier Maślanka Nov 2016

Newton’S Third Law In Karmic Warfare, Kazmier Maślanka

The STEAM Journal

A work entitled "Newton's Third Law in Karmic Warfare" is a mathematical visual poem which is a perfect example of a technique, that I call The Paradigm Poem. This piece makes a direct connection with the concept of karma and Newton’s Third Law of motion. I will introduce the concept of “The Mathematical Paradigm Poem” to illuminate an example of how metaphor is used in mathematical visual poetry. I will also discuss much of the process in making this aesthetic expression.

What If?: Mathematics, Creative Writing, And Play, Emily Clader Jan 2016

What If?: Mathematics, Creative Writing, And Play, Emily Clader

Journal of Humanistic Mathematics

Mathematics can inform creative writing by suggesting structures for it to follow, as well as by providing the imaginative impetus for common rules to be broken. In a workshop co-taught by the author, a class of sixth-grade students explored this interplay as they produced fractal-inspired poetry and geometry-inspired fiction. This article describes the form and results of the workshop in the context of a broader discussion of the influence of mathematics upon literature.

How To Cook Up A Math Poem In N Easy Steps, Caleb Emmons Jan 2013

How To Cook Up A Math Poem In N Easy Steps, Caleb Emmons

Journal of Humanistic Mathematics

A mathematical poem attempts to distill a mathematical concept and present it in a literary or visually compelling way. This paper presents an outline of my own personal method of composing such poetry. The outline is elucidated via an extended meditation on the composition of one particular poem.


Joanne Growney's Poetry-With-Mathematics Blog -- An Appreciation, Gregory E. Coxson Jul 2012

Joanne Growney's Poetry-With-Mathematics Blog -- An Appreciation, Gregory E. Coxson

Journal of Humanistic Mathematics

Now is a good time to work on the boundaries of practice and theory, of art and science. We are seeing a rising tide of interest in these boundaries. Witness the growing Bridges movement, which has been exploring the connections between mathematics and the arts. Similarly, JoAnne Growney's blog, Intersections -- Poetry with Mathematics, explores the connections between mathematics and poetry. Through this review, I aim to give readers a taste of what can be found in Intersections as a way of encouraging others, be they mathematicians, poets, or neither, to visit the blog.
