This is a short book of short jokes, covering a broad range of mathematical levels. For example, it starts with "Why is 6 afraid of 7? Because 7 8 9" and includes "What is big, gray, and has integer coefficients? An elephantine equation". It includes many old classics, but it also has many jokes I hadn't hear of. I found it very pleasant to read, and I look forward to using some of these jokes in my classes!

The jokes in this book are jokes in the usual sense. For mathematically related anecdotes, Howard Eves' "In mathematical circles" series, and Steven Krantz's "Mathematical Apocrypha" and "Mathematical Apocrypha Redux" are all good. For humorous mathematical essays, there is Colin Adams' "Riot at the Calc Exam".

The beauty of this book is that there are jokes that a first grader will find hilarious and others that a professor in a math related field will chuckle over. There is something for everyone at every level

I bought this for my daughter who is a middle school math teacher. She has enjoyed using it with her students. She said the students also had fun and it is a great tool for using with students who struggle with math.
I recommend the purchase of this book.

I posted all of the Pi jokes on Pi Day and they were a big hit. the funny-meter is definitely directly proportional to the level of Math you have completed, many of the advanced topics are beyond me.

I purchased this for my hubby, who is a high school math teacher. While some of the jokes are funny, there were quite a few that were not appropriate! This is definitely not a book to share with your students!

I bought this book to give to my math-loving brother. He thoroughly enjoyed reading it and could not participate in the rest of our family gathering activities because he was too engrossed in this math book. I did read quite a few of the jokes. As a person who does NOT enjoy math, I have to say many of these jokes were quite funny to me. There were also many jokes that I didn't understand and were way above my head (Calculus level).

Gave this as a gift for my mathy husband. He read some of the jokes out loud, some were funny, some corny, some I had no idea...the jokes run the gamut from basic one liners to involved stories. It seems to me that it is more for adults and older kids of the mathy persuasion.

This gift was for my son who is an Honor's Math Teacher at Central High School in Phoenix, Az.
He loves it and has already found fun things to test that his students can think outside the box.
Thanks for this offering. Greatly appreciated.
