I Know Math

I Know Math
by Mrs. Tanksley's Fifth Graders

I know math
Scratching of sharp pencils
Fierce clicking of calculators
Rustling of paper full of numbers.

I know math
bitter bite of red ink, marking an incorrect answer
burning rubber from furious erasers
pungent odor of test anxiety.

I know math
"Carry the one"
"Base times width times height"
"π".

I know math.
