The instructor reads a poem to the children. Then, as a group, they must discuss the math problem in the poem and solve it. Results of the activities include heightened auditory acuity, increased attention to spoken details, and practice for the mind’s eye to play with math. The four volumes of Math Verses with Twists are sold as a set.

Example:

Hi Ho the Merry-O
The farmer in the dell
Was singing merrily,
Working in the hayfield
While the wind was blowing free.

The autumn scene was picturesque
With the hay stacked row on row.
He had been working from early dawn
Until the sun was getting low.

As he came to 1 1/4 haystacks,
And nearby 1 1/4 again,
He added them together.
What was his total then?
