Tanget Haiku

Sophomore, Danielle Esche is in the geometry class that has the freshmen in it, so that means so has to do a haiku. For her haiku she chose to tangent as her topic. She chose that so she could get all five points for the topic part of the project. Since Esche isn't a freshmen she is only doing this project for one teacher. The freshmen have to do it for the geometry teacher and the english teacher. Esche said, "I like the project because it makes you think outside of the box." The rough draft was due Wednesday, April 25th. A haiku goes by syllables. To write one the first line has to have five syllables, the second line has seven syllables and the third line has five syllables again. Esche said, "It only took a couple of minutes to get the 5-7-5 to work out for what I did."

Her haiku:
Tangent of circle 5
is a line that intersects 7
at point on circle 5
