Product Description

By Patrick Vennebush

Who says math can't be funny? In Math Jokes 4 Mathy Folks, Patrick Vennebush dispels the myth of the humorless mathematician. His quick wit comes through in this excellent compilation of jokes and stories. Intended for all math types, Math Jokes 4 Mathy Folks provides a comprehensive collection of math humor, containing over 400 jokes. It's a book that every teacher from elementary school through college should have in their library. But the humor isn't just for the classroom — it also appeals to engineers, statisticians and other math professionals searching for some good, clean, numerical fun. From basic facts ("Why is 6 afraid of 7?") to trigonometry ("Mathematical puns are the first sine of dementia") and algebra ("Graphing rational functions is a pain in the asymptote"), no topic is safe. As Jim Rubillo notes, "Math Jokes 4 Math Folks is an absolute gem for anyone dedicated to seeing mathematical ideas through puns, double meanings, and blatant 'bad' jokes. Such perspectives help to see concepts and ideas in different and creative ways.

"Math nerds and punsters rejoice! This is the book you've been waiting for—your perfect source for that one-liner to impress your girlfriend, boyfriend, or 8th-grade math teacher." —Cathy Seeley, Past President, NCTM

"The jokes in this book are well-chosen and cover a wide spectrum, from jokes for kids to jokes for math majors, from corny to thought-provoking." —Art Benjamin, Professor and Mathemagician, Harvey Mudd College, Claremont, CA

"This is a book that every math teacher from elementary school through college should have in their classroom library. Who said math can't be funny?" —Victoria Miles, Middle Grades Math Teacher, Weymouth, MA

"Patrick Vennebush has put together the most comprehensive set of mathematical jokes I have ever seen...if you like math and you like jokes—or if you need a joke to liven up an otherwise dull and boring lecture—then you need to buy this book." —Guy Brandenburg, Retired Teacher, Washington, DC

"I haven't laughed so hard since I discovered that imaginary numbers are just numbers with a not-so-real complex. Enjoy!" —Ed B. Burger, Professor, Williams College, Williamstown, MA
