5.0 out of 5 stars I absolutely love this book! 24 Mar. 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is a delightful engaging introduction to the world of mathematics, giving children and adults alike a glimpse of the wonderful adventures that lie beyond simple (and boring) drills. My 9 year old son, who doesn't like to read aloud, loves to say these poems with me. I would also recommend Math Talk to anyone looking for creative ways to expose math-phobes to the intriguing possibilities.
Poems for two voices are designed to be read aloud by two readers. Each reader reads from one of the two columns and lines written on the same line are said simultaneously.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pure poetry in motion! 15 Aug. 2014
By Cleargrace - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Pappas captures the poetry of math in this collection of, well, of poems! In the clean style of haiku, Pappas uses single words, brief terms, and action verbs to create a linguistic waterfall. Two (or three) readers speak their lines aloud. Like water rushing down a stream, the lines laugh and dance around each other, sometimes overlapping, sometimes colliding in bursts of life. These poems, read aloud by multiple voices will catch you up in the excitement and take your breath away. There are poems for numbers of all sorts, from prime to Pi, and mathematical ideas, like the Möbius strip. Dive in, the water feels good! Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Cross-curricular poetry! 29 May 2008
By Scrapbooker - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
After completing some other Poetry in two-voice and four-voice formats, this book offers an opportunity to reach your math oriented students, and touch the cross-curricular boundary. I used this book and the poems within its pages as a surprise for my math team partner. We practiced on some days that my partner was out on taking some professional development, and performed the poems for him upon his return. This is one more way to hook students on poetry.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun read 5 Oct. 2013
By J. Rogers - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I really enjoy poems for two voices, and this book is no exception. They are really fun poems, and even able to generate a bit of discussion. I only wish I had bought it in hard copy (I bought the Kindle edition).
