Math Humor

For all of you teachers and lovers of math, here are some funny math test questions and answers that my husband "Art the Actuary" emailed to me.

LOL Lynne! If I were the teacher I would LOL that the kids had a sense of humor!

Lynne said...

Pam- I don't know if humor will get you points on a test but it sure helps with the rest of life!!

Dee said...

Those are cute. *s*

Mary said...

Those kids have a good sense of humor but the teachers don't give A's for it. The teachers do get a guffaw, though :)

I didn't even read the problems that closely. I'm not math-proned :0( Have you heard of math morons? That might be me.

I would have to give points for creativity.

A great laugh for the end of the week! Creative, artsy people are often poor at math. Ask my daughter!

Yes, Ruth. That's my excuse, I'm artsy.

I was made to teach math my first year teaching, in addition to my Spanish classes. I thought for sure my high school algebra teaching was rolling in his grave the whole time. But, teaching algebra really helped me learn it finally.

These are great! I don't understand the questions, but I do get the answers!

I wish I'd had that sense of humor when taking math and physics tests!

Sandy said...

I guess I am artsy, too. So glad my life does not depend on my mathmatical ability. I think these is funny now, but they aren't my kid's papers!

The elephant in the way . . . priceless!

Along with the heartache of teaching, is the hilarious joy. I regularly have to turn away from naughty but funny kids so they don't see my smile and think their behavior is good!

This reminds me of that supposedly true story of a student who was asked on a test if Hell was exothermic or endothermic (getting hotter or cooler . . . I think). He proved that it was exothermic since a certain girl said she would date him when Hell Freezes Over, and thus he knew Hell would not be getting cooler.

These answers are great. Hopefully the creativity of these kids will be nourished - along with their math skills!
