I don’t mind addition and possibly subtraction,
But what about integrals or even a fraction?
Calculus is tricky, but you need to be precise,
Just think of probability as an imaginary dice!
I’ll tell you something difficult, it’s called integrating,
At least it’s not as challenging as differentiating!
But there’s truth beyond maths, more than just pi,
Clearly more than e, i or phi!
Feast your eyes on nature, the flowers and the leaves,
Can you see a pattern, reflected in the trees?
Or the crashing waves, maybe just one clue,
It is 3.141592.
A simple pinecone is symbolic of God’s perfection,
The pattern of fibonacci, in the right direction.
If you study and always try your best,
You’re sure to do well on your next maths test!
