Algebra One This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

   Remember all those rationals and irrationals, the ones we got confused?

I still get them wrong and I am not very amused.

Digits and decimals, too many D's

But wait until we start on those x, y, and z's.

Powers of 10 are expressed by exponents in many ways,

But, remember, there is only one and that is to have them raised.

Counting all those zeros makes me very crazy,

So use that scientific notation and don't be so lazy.

Collections of elements in sets are a breeze.

Elements follow a pattern just like 1, 2, and 3's.

A variable is a symbol like x which has 1 value, not 2.

If you put the right variable in an open sentence, the statement will be true.

Factoring numbers can be such a bore!

But, prime numbers are the best since the factors are only 1 and itself, and nothing more.

Hey, this is really good! It's funny :D If anyone down here in the comment section has the time, could you please take a look at my poetry, particularly the poem titled "This is Our USA"? That would really mean a lot
