I came across a newspaper article for a poetry contest and decided to invite my Algebra 2 students to write a poem.  I made it an extra credit option with the criteria that the poem had to be about the math we were studying or the 8 Mathematical Practices relating to the Common Core.

I am attaching my handout and student work.  I have had three entries so far.  One pair of students read their poem to the class.  It is always fun to see students in a different light!
