I have my Pre-Calculus midterm coming up, and really need to practice. Does anyone know of any sites that have practice problems / study guides in them??
Thanks
A better stab at the poem would be:
A Dozen, a Gross and a Score,
plus three times the square root of four,
all divided by seven,
plus five times eleven,
equals nine squared plus zero, no more.
In your version the mathematical expression was slightly ambiguous.

I really don't mind if the mathematical expression is slightly ambiguous, primarily because I did not write it. However, if you did look at it, the rhythm in this poem is 8, 8, 6,6,8. This pattern is that of a limerick; a poem consisting of five anapaestic lines. Lines 1, 2, and 5 of a Limerick have seven to ten syllables and rhyme with one another. Lines 3 and 4 have five to seven syllables and also rhyme with each other. If this poem were to be edited as you have suggested, the pattern would be thrown off, making it incorrect. Thus, since it is in fact a poem, and the mathematical portion is entirely possible, it is in fact correct.
Regardless of this issue in my signature, do you have any recommendation of a website I could consult in order to practice the issue I am concerned with, being Pre-Calculus?
