The Mathitudes

. Poster source:
Note: A clever mathematical adaptation of the Beatitudes (New Testament Bible) is the "Mathitudes". I first saw this adaptation in a mathematics classroom in Punahou School, Honolulu, Hawaii in 2003 while I was attending a fellowship training on e-learning.


Blessed are the mathematical in spirit, for they shall see patterns and relationships.

Blessed are those who mourn over their peer results in math, for they shall be tutored.

Blessed are the mathematically meek, for they shall gain confidence with practice.

Blessed are those who hunger and thirst after mathematical knowledge, for they shall be filled.

Blessed are the slow and unsteady in computation for their calculators shall comfort them.

Blessed are the logical, for they shall see the beauty of proof.

Blessed are those who prepare for their math tests, for success will be theirs.

Blessed are the rational, for they shall understand fractions.

Blessed are those who do their math homework regularly, for they shall learn the most.

Rejoice in the study of mathematics for great will be your reward in life.
