\(\mathbb{Math + Poems = Real \ Beauty}\)

Hello Brilliantians! Now since 2018 is coming to a close, I am going to hold a Math Poetry Contest.

The Rules and Regulations (and some schedules):

\(\bullet\)Your posted problem must at least have a poetic sense. As in ''\( e\) is Euler's number, with no blunder. Find it's decimal value (to 2 d.p.), only it shows the virtue.''

\(\bullet\) You have the right to choose what type of poem you want to write (Acrostic, Sonnet, Haiku, Limerick etc)

Note It depends if you want the entire poem to be your problem (as shown above) or just a bit of your problem

\(\bullet\) Inappropriate content MUST not be included

\(\bullet\) You may publish your problem on Brilliant or in this note.

\(\bullet\) When you publish your problem on Brilliant, write "This is my entry to the Math Poetry Contest"[link to this note] in the problem.

\(\bullet\) The contest ends on 1st Jan 2019 and late entries will not be considered.

\(\bullet\) You may post unoriginal problems but make sure that they have not been posted on Brilliant.org

\(\bullet\) You may post 3 problems at maximum

\(\bullet\) Results will be announced on 8th Jan 2019

\(\bullet\) The upvote system will be used to see who has the best poem problem! (You cannot downvote a poem problem if you dislike it. You may not upvote or downvote a problem you do not like ie. you are neutral and you MUST upvote your own poem.)

Note: Please remember that this is NOT a popularity vote!

So get writing problems and

BEST OF LUCK POETS AND POETESSES!


I will hold another contest about science and so you can prepare now but only post it on new year's day to the deadline. However, you have to fulfil the special conditions given

Here is my poem problem. Hope you like it.

I made a change saying that you cannot upvote your own problem.

All comments are automatically upvoted by the commenter. Voting for your own comment wouldn't change the results that much either; at least, I don't believe it would.

@Blan Morrison But it may break ties and that is why I want to start with everyone neutralized

Mohmmad Farhan - 1 week, 2 days ago

@Mohmmad Farhan I'm not saying you are wrong, but rather it will be incredibly hard to get everyone to cooperate.

@Blan Morrison Changed the rules

@Blan Morrison I think that you should change the rule that everyone should upvote their own problem. It fulfills the same purpose, and at the same time it is much easier to have everyone cooperate.

May I write a problem but it does not count? Any thoughts about it? @David Vreken?

Mohmmad Farhan - 1 week, 5 days ago

Log in to reply

Yeah, that's fine; it's your contest. Maybe get someone else to vote on it, though. What if we use the upvote system in order to see whose poem/problem is the best?

Blan Morrison - 1 week, 5 days ago

Log in to reply

I thought about that but I thought that it was too late to use the system. Well I will make the edits in the note!

Here's my first submission!

Here is my poem!

I SAID NO DOWNVOTES! Someone better remove this downvote

Mohmmad Farhan - 1 week, 3 days ago

Log in to reply

I guess any downvotes, accidental or otherwise, can just be ignored in the final tally.

David Stiff - 1 week, 2 days ago

I have to admit. THE SOLUTION-PROBLEM POEM WAS GOING THE EXTRA MILE!!!!

Mohmmad Farhan - 1 week, 3 days ago

Log in to reply

Thanks so much! I'm glad you enjoyed it.

David Stiff - 1 week, 3 days ago

@Mohammad Farhan , what about free verse?

Lucia and Emma - 2 days, 13 hours ago

Log in to reply

That's a bit of a stretch. Most poets don't consider free verse to be poetry.

Blan Morrison - 2 days, 12 hours ago

You must like my sonnet. The more likes, the better.

Jerome Te - 4 days, 23 hours ago

Log in to reply

You copied a bit of David Vreken.

Mohmmad Farhan - 4 days, 1 hour ago

Log in to reply

It’s actually inspired by his problem. And I feel it doesn’t matter if they were both sonnets. They were somehow different.

Here's my second submission!

@Ram Mohith, would you like to take part?

Mohmmad Farhan - 1 month ago

Yes

You have a lot of time so no pressure

Mohmmad Farhan - 1 month ago

Log in to reply

If we already posted 3 problems and made a problem which we think is better, can we substitute one of our problems for that problem? Like remove one problem for a new problem before January 1, 2019?

Jerome Te - 1 month ago

Log in to reply

Yes you can delete your work if you want

Mohmmad Farhan - 1 month ago

Log in to reply

You can also remove the link from one of the problems too without deleting the entire problem.
