Practicing Mathematics


Ah! add or subtract?
Multiply or divide?
Why heat your head
If we can have fun?

The sum of two amounts
It's just a new count
Counting the two sets
All the luggage is found.

Put what you have on the table
Subtraction! Is that what you thought?
Take as much as you want
And tell what is left.

Count a lot multiple times
This is multiplication, friend!
Or separate into equal heaps
And now it's all divided!

Don't be shy my friend
To put the theory into practice
Mathematics is a science
It is neither magic nor magic.
