Determinant in what you do,

The mathematician adds, subtracts, divides, multiplies

And often complicates

The mind of the one who breaks mathematics.

Let us be straight, parables, equations and inequalities

Or the assembly of a Tangram;

Let be limits, derivatives, integrals and functions

Or the fantastic stories of Malba Tahan.

Tangenciando our ways,

Majestic discipline fascinates us

And at the same time, it teaches us

That the "problems" are not thorns.
