Day 353. Sci-ku

In July 2013 on July 30, 2013 at 11:24 pm


As part of National Science Week 2013, The Royal Institute of Australia is conducting a competition in science poetry: Sci-Ku.

Guided by the statistics/mathematics theme, here are a few examples I’ve come up with using the 5 syllable-7 syllable-5 syllable rule which normally applies to haiku:

Not just for classrooms

Maths will give you tools for life

Life is maths in action.


Is what I see real?

Can I measure what I see?

Yes, and what you can’t.


One scientist counts

Her numbers are repeated

Everyone agrees.
