Im sorry, I know this doesnt belong in here and I know this doesnt have anything to do with technology, but is really important and I need it for today!

There is a project that I need to turn in tomorrow, I have been working on it for a week already. This project is about making a Poem with math words and basically Im 80% done.

Now, this project needs to have specific words (geometry words) and there are some words that I cannot find a rhyme for. I need a rhyme for the words

Collinear Points
Opposite Rays
Undefined Terms
Line Segments
Initial Point

I would like to ask everybody if you guys can help me out to make a rhyme for this words.

I only need 1 paragraph with all of them, but they have to make sense.

Will really appreciate all your help!

Thanks!

No matter how stupid this thread is I'm sure you'll get replies. However I suck at maths and have no idea what you're talking about.

Good luck!

are you trying to rhyme the first word or the 2nd?

How about a limerick?

something like:

I drew a line segment on a graph
Some collinear points on a path
From an initial point place
I drew opposite rays
whose undefined terms made me laugh

It's been a long time since I studied geometry, so maybe the terms don't make any sense there...but I'm sure you could modify it to make sense.

Thanks for the ones who helped :) 

I already have something which will post tomorrow afternoon :) 

Still need 2 more lines with initial point and segments... any help will really be appreciated.

Collinear Points
Unbending Joints

Opposite Rays
Overworked Haze

Undefined Terms
Unrefined Worms

Line Segments
You’re Too Tense

Initial Point
Disappoint


Like this (utter crap):

While slaving away on collinear points,
My pencil would fall from my unbending joints.
The mental depiction of opposite rays
Put my thoughts in a furiously overworked haze.
Arduously working with undefined terms
Sent me off to the lib'ry and its unrefined 'worms.
As I pled all aghast, "Please help with 'line segments'!"
They said with a smile, "Go and play, you're too tense."
"Please, just one thing! What is the 'initial point'?"
"I'd explain, but I failed. My answer would dissapoint..."

Or you could try this site: http://www.rhymezone.com/

Edit: Good job caamsa. :wink:

Hey thanks a lot, will try to use that as part of the poem

One question, what is the right way to say it

two or more points will always joint
or
two or more points will always be joint

I'd say the second one. But a great rule of grammar/life: "When in doubt, throw it out." Just re-write if you're having troubles. You don't think I wrote that poem in one quick pass, do you? :wink: :lol:

Energy of life, the power to anoint,
given Terra’s Sol, humanities Initial point

Sun and Moon, light of opposite rays,
battle for supremacy through the twilight haze

Sun waxes as Moon wanes, collinear points of light,
Sol harangues Moon, aroint thee dusky night

Contesting ownership of the sky as rival firms,
the conflict waxes endless on undefined terms

Sun and Moon, light as line segments,
each claiming heavenly ownership through the cyclic regiment .

the two sound good to me hehe, Im not an english native speaker thats why Im asking hehe :p 
April 10, 2007 11:56:36 PM

I have to use easy words, not saying is bad, just that some words are kinda complicated :cry: 
April 11, 2007 12:01:59 AM

:lol:  Heck no, I don't mind. Fun breeds fun. Besides, I came up with the rhymes before the poem, so I had to shoe-horn it. :wink:

Slim, you'll do great. Don't worry. :D 

Just ask away if you have any more questions...

Ah men, I have a good rhyme, Im finished with it. Now I just hope the class likes it :) 

Wish me luck

Here it is, dont blame me please, first timer :oops: 

[Got it from a random site just to make this longer]
If you are an even number
you always have a pair
So if you look around
your buddy will always be there
but...
If you are an odd number
there is always a lonely one
He looks around to find his buddy
but he is the only one

If you have collinear points
Two or more points will always be joint
And if you find opposite rays
Then let me rephrase
cuz you don’t wanna have undefined terms
If you have line segments on a graph
you know there is a path
From the initial point place
all over the graph base

What you think?

hey hey hey!

I know rhymes are not something I like to do.

now, I used wanna and cuz because this project is called "american idol" (lol) and is for my geometry class, we dont have to turn in any paper or anything, we just have to stand in front of the class and say your poem or song out loud thats it. So I wrote cuz cause it sounds like cause, getting out of correct grammar doesnt hurt anybody and I used wanna cuz it sounds better than want to :) 
Nobody is gonna check any paper or stuff so thats why I didnt worry about writing the right way.

There are gonna be some people making some rap songs so I wont be the only one talking like that :) 

Just to clarify, now I think my grade would be a B+? or even an A- :) 
April 11, 2007 2:55:06 AM

Hey, sounds good. Like I said, you'll do great. :) 

Just one question though. That "cuz...wanna" line doesn't rhyme with anything. Is that intentional or did you run out of words? :p  :lol: 

Okay, so maybe I lied. I have a few more questions. :p  Are "even number", "odd number", and "pair" the other words you're supposed to use? Any others I missed? Cuz now I wanna add mo' linez to my rap, yo. :p 
April 11, 2007 10:17:01 AM

Hehe, thanks

the cuz and wanna are intentional :) 

like I said, I need this words to make it look not so serious :p 

Preparing to school ready to go in 2 hours I should be saying this in front of 20 people waaaa!

You need to work on your meter, but damn it's still impressive.

You can't go wrong with a haiku!

Collinear Points
Like stiff soldiers on parade
One line through them all

The brevity means you cant go too far astray!
