Author Vennebush introduces us to his book Math Jokes 4 Mathy Folks:
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 incredible 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 all teachers 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 Professor 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.”
This book is a lot of fun! I am not a math major, nor am I an English major but I laughed a lot. I didn’t understand all the jokes and you don’t have to. Some of the jokes are so deep that they don’t see the light of day. There are a lot of great jokes, a bunch of horrible puns, quite a few that school age kids will love. There is something for everyone!
You can count on this book delivering fun and some eye-rolling moments!
I am happy to report that a sequel is in the works and on the way!
I give Math Jokes 4 Mathy Folks 4.8 stars out of 5! Thank you mathster Vennebush!
