I think I’ll ask my uncle Floyd,
About this shape called trapezoid,
He’s the one that’s good at shapes,
Like purple circles, oval grapes...
Squished up square shape,
A name that leaves my brain annoyed!!!
Why can’t I learn this red shape’s name?
It was Monday’s,
Math class aim!
I can’t remember trapezoid,
It leaves my brain in such a void…
Can it catch things like a trap! (trapezoid)
Can you wear it like a cap!
Flip it over- makes a boat,
In the water it might float!
Trapezoid, A shape unique!
A definition's what I seek!
what’s this shape called trapezoid?
Here are the words,
Of Uncle Floyd...
Floyd the master,
Of most math,
The perfect path,
The math of shapes,
And guess what Floyd,
Said to me,
"Trapezoid, listen well, has 2 straight sides, parallel..."
That was it,
That was all,
8 short words,
Floyd had gall!
I couldn’t help but feel annoyed,
A trapezoid is a quadrilateral with at least one pair of parallel sides....also called trapezium...
