Mathematics is a discipline much feared by most students in schools. Handing out strategies to demystify this discipline through interdisciplinarity, that is, to show how mathematics can be used in other branches of knowledge is our goal. Thinking about this issue, we developed the POEMATHICS Project as an alternative activity for the teaching of mathematics allied to the Portuguese language teaching. This initiative consists of relating the mathematics with the written language. Students should develop poems, poetry, texts, stories, music, etc., using mathematical terms and ideas. To promote this activity is necessary the participation of teachers of a language (this work deals with English examples and a workshop done in Portuguese) and Mathematics so that students can be accompanied and together awaken the pleasure of learning as well as improving math and linguistic skills.
