An Integral Limerick |

Its translation is:

Integral z-squared dz

from 1 to the cube root of 3

times the cosine

of three pi over 9

equals log of the cube root of 'e'.

Moreover, evaluation of the formulas on each side of the equality yields

**1/3**.

This formula-limerick may be found -- along with lots of other math-fun -- in the Devine-Cohen collection

*Absolute Zero Gravity; Science Jokes, Quotes, and Anecdotes*(Simon & Schuster, 1992) . (My first find of the limerick was, however, in the collection of math miscellany found at the website of retired math teacher, David Pleacher.)

Hi JoAnne, I found you from your comments on my Dr. Seuss/quadratic poem - wow, you're the master at math poems, these are just great! I love it! :)
