Math Jokes Punchlines


The week before the winter break I covered a math class. (I'll blog about that experience next week.) Their assignments for the week are due this coming Sunday.

More of them were on task than I normally get, but a bunch of them weren't. Naturally. To all of those who said they'd just do it over the break, my thoughts are with them this coming weekend. Because, as I said to them, they'd be looking at that homework on the 7th and cursing themselves for not doing it sooner.

I know they haven't started that homework yet. I'm sure of this.

Anyway, as I have math on the brain, here's a fun math quiz.

No math required. Well, not much. I got 18/18 with 1:34 minutes left. I bet you can beat my score.

  1. I was always a procrastinator in school and did assignments last minute. Escaped high school with a B average. College is where I finally excelled. Maybe some of those kids will do the same.

    1. I forgot to say "make use of the skip button". That's what saved me.

  4. Heh, that was amusing. I don't think Avogadro's number is really a math joke, though. More of a chemistry joke.

    1. That's pretty standard. Most teens will put stuff like this off as long as possible.

  14. Math... I'll be doing enough of that with my kids later today as we start back into school. *sigh* My oldest tells me he struggles with math. This from a 4.0 student. I told him it might be hard for him, but he doesn't "struggle" or he wouldn't been landing A's. Truthfully, math is an older skill.
