Welcome to Friday Pi-Day! Your task today is to write a poem based on Piphilology – the creation of mnemonic phrases to help you remember the digits of π. (For those of you who have forgotten your mathematics, π is the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter.)

The standard Piphilology approach is to come up with a phrase where each word has the number of letters corresponding to the values of π. In our case, you will be writing a poem (a *Piem*, if you will) where each line contains either the number of syllables or number of words corresponding to the appropriate part of the sequence. The topic of your poem? Mathematics, and/or mathematicians!

Minimum of five lines, and a maximum of however many you like. (Keeping in mind that pi is an irrational number and essentially infinite, so … stop before then.)

Do you mean mnemonic phrases? Maybe I will have to work “pneumonic” in there somewhere – to do with breathing 🙂

Argh …
