# Math Jokes?

I teach geometry, and I started putting math jokes on the board, but I am out of jokes I think the kids will understand. To give you an idea of the kind of jokes they liked, here's a couple of their favorites.

What did the acorn say when it grew up? Geometry

What did one math book say to another? Leave me alone. I have my own problems.

Do you know any of a similar level that I can use? Most math jokes require more mathematical knowledge than these kids have.

(1) When I was in school my math teacher asked me, Jay, what's the difference between 12 and 8?

I said, that's the way I feel, what's the difference!

(2) If you take two apples from three apples how many apples do you have? Answer - Two apples. (I didn't say how many do you have left)

(3) How many times can 3 be taken away from 21?

Answer - Only once. (After that you would be taking 3 away from 18, then 15, etc. You dig?)

(4) Kid playing on the beach had 6 1/6 sandpiles in one place and 3 1/3 in another. If he put them all together, how many sandpiles would he have? Answer - Only one.

(5) In the Smith family there are 7 sisters, and each sister has one brother. Including Mr. & Mrs. Smith, how many in the family? Answer - Ten.

(6) This is one of my favorites and plan to use it later. So I won't give the answer.

"If this & that plus 1/2 of this & 1/2 of that = 7... how much is this & that?"

As a teacher I'm sure you'll figure the answer.

Don't know if any of these would be helpful to you, but if you want to email me I have some that would take too long to put here. Keep up the good work. God knows the country needs good educators.

I took geometry in ninth grade, and am assuming you're teaching about that level. I don't have any jokes to share, but my geometry teacher introduced me to logic puzzles, and I have enjoyed them ever since. If you're not familiar with them, this is the kind of puzzle you find in crossword/variety books (found on magazine racks) that gives a number of clues about a number of items in a scenario, and by carefully considering each clue, you can figure out each item's attributes. For example, Mary and John did not wear green on Tuesday. Doris wore red shoes the day after Ginger wore her white hat, etc.

When I was preparing to take the GRE, I was told that about 1/3 of the exam was this kind of logic puzzle...and they were right. (Although my graduate school didn't look at that part of the test, I did the whole thing, just to see what my score would be.)

Just for something a little different. :)

How about 36x24x36?

not the "Perfect Female Figure"

In my 4th grade schoolyear I saw the sign & it appeared as "incomplete", to me! Replace the "bys" as times

36 x 24 x 36 = 31,104! & show that, to the class.

& another equation using a calculator do 6 x 0.1289 & the answer is 0.7734. Then have the calculator turned upside down & the 0.7734 will show as "hello".
