Infinity - No Limits


Introduced its symbol by Wallis, JohN
Named after the last greek letter some believed sO
Frankly others found it derived from a roman numeraL
It is not a real number unlike PI
Negative, it grows less than the number it was froM
If positive, it grows beyond, oui? OuI!
The quantity is endless and must be too big to counT
Yes! It does look like the number eight turned sidewayS

    I'm an AP Calc teacher in Taylorsville, NC. This may be before your time, but several years ago, Reebok had an ad campaign with the slogan "Planet Reebok - No Limits." Several of my students expressed a desire to move there! I wish each of you happy holidays and I look forward to reading more of your posts when school resumes.
