Nursery Rhymes
In Spring 2011, I assigned the class to write a nursery rhyme for the EML3041 Computational Methods course based on the nursery rhyme  One, Two, Buckle My Shoe. Here is their attempt.
One, two, Find the root Three, four, Watch that error Five, six, Regress the set Seven, eight, Bisect the equation Nine, ten,
Interpolate the answer! BM One two my error is true three four interpolation's a chore five six no TI86 seven eight now I can extrapolate nine ten
time for optimization! Boston Creme One, two, There's much to do Three, four, Equations galore Five, six, Constraints to fix Seven, eight, No curve is straight Nine, ten, Finished amen!
David Botta One two my error is true Three, Four,
Letâ€™s calculate more integrate this f(x)=sec^2(x) Seven, Eight, Can't well use Newton's Laws Nine, Ten, then you can solve
David A Bowman One, two, My error is true Three, four, Truncation error Five, six, A bunch of bits Seven, eight, Biased exponents are great Nine, ten, Solve it again (because you can always make your answer more accurate)
MC 4.0 One, Two, My error is true. Three, Four, Truncation? No more. Five, Six, Derive just for kicks. Seven, Eight, Integrate for Pete's sake! Nine, Ten, Interpolation For the win!
LC One two My error is true three, four is this the right calculator? five, six There's an integral to Fix seven, eight You've got to Formulate nine, ten I love Regression
Rhino One, two, This is the true Three, four, numerical method for you Five, six, the trunnion just fit Seven, eight, The trunnion got stuck Nine, ten, Do it yourself
Anonymous One, Two, My error is true Three, Four, Quadratics don't bore Five, Six, Put Euler in the mix Seven, Eight, Fourier is great Nine, Ten, Sum it again!
Anonymous One, two Errors are relative or true Three, four Do iterations some more Five, six Don't forget my radix Seven, eight Calculate the approximate rate Nine, ten Got it 97% right then
JDD
One, Two
Anonymous One, two, Math doesn't always pull through Three, four, Round to the floor Five, Six, Numerical Methods predicts Seven, eight, Getting error is fate Nine, Ten, I got an A, amen
MF One, two,
True error, this is how to
Do not use pen! Anonymous One, Two, The function grew Three, Four, Improve your score Five, Six, Use the matrix Seven, Eight, Now integrate Nine, Ten,
Check it again GG One, two, My error is true Three, four, Approximate the error! Five, six, Solve a Taylor series. Seven eight, Extrapolate. Nine, ten, Proportional to "h"!
Mr. Tardy
One, two,
Extrapolationmaster Flash
One, two,

R Henson One, two, The result is on que Three, four, I want to program some more Five, six, Stay in the mix Seven eight, Don't hesitate Nine, ten, You no longer need the pen.
Sr. real One two My error is true three, four, with fourier`s law five, six, Dr.Kaw is sick seven, eight, lets try it again nine, ten, with comp. methods again
The Pipe One, two, Taylor series review Three, four, Approximate more Five, six, Like a matrix Seven, eight, Differentiation is great Nine, ten, Exponents in base ten
Joel Jenkins One, two, Find the approximate value. Three, four, Compute till you're sore. Five, six, Learn to decompose a matrix. Seven, eight, Binary representation is great. Nine, ten, Interpolate again.
TL one,two convert to base two three, four what is the order five, six add nonlinear equations to the mix seven, eight computate nine, ten convert back to base ten
The Lost One One two My error is true Three, four, learn some more Five, six, numerical method mix Seven, eight, exam's I await Nine, ten, sharpen the pen!
Anonymous One, two, The square root of two. Three, four, Approximately one point four one four. Five, six, What is the error of this? Seven, eight, You need to approximate. Nine, ten, The number is indefinite.
Christopher Martinez's Numerical Methods Nursery Rhyme One, two, Converting binary is up to you, Three, four, Lets approximate some more, Five, six, Square the matrix, Seven, eight, Try not to extrapolate, Nine, ten, Interpolate again!
Anonymous One, two, Significant figures are few Three, four, Truncating's a bore Five, six, Round this Seven eight, No debate Nine, ten, Your error is thin!
Joshua Mcguigan One, two, Model be true Three, four, Error no more Five, six, Value picks Seven, eight, Calculate Nine, ten, Run it again!
Sean Michael Meibers Three, four True value and approximate value Five, six Don't forget the difference Seven, Eight Significant digits are great Nine, ten Now it's time for a series of Taylor and Maclaurin
Cam One, two, Regression to do, Three, four, Equations galore, Five, six, Truncation predicts, Seven, Eight, Approximating is great, Nine, ten, Solve it again!
Anonymous One, two, My error is true Three, four, that error is a lot more Five, six, when there is not that many bits Seven eight, that can not be right Nine, ten, it needs to be approximated again
Badrhymer One, two, Give my homework to you Three, four, Learn about an error Five, six, Get ready for statistics Seven, eight, Integrate Nine, ten, NO TEXTIN'
N.F.R.
One, Two
MC Chedda Measha One, two, My error is true Three, four, be careful when you round off Five, six, remember your sig figs Seven, eight, know how to truncate Nine, ten, errors never end!
Fiddy Sig Figs Three, Four Approximate more Five, Six Its making me sick Seven, Eight Time to relate Nine, Ten We do it again
Anonymous One, two, My error is true Three, Four, Let's round off some more Five, Six, Now the error is mixed, Seven, Eight, Should we derivate? Nine, Ten, Do the problem again!
Michael Schmidt Three, Four reduce it more Five,Six, the limit is fixed Seven, Eight, differentiate Nine, Ten, compare again
