A math student is pestered by a classmate who wants to copy his homework assignment. The student hesitates, not only because he thinks it's wrong, but also because he doesn't want to be sanctioned for aiding and abetting.

His classmate calms him down: "Nobody will be able to trace my homework to you: I'll be changing the names of all the constants and variables: a to b, x to y, and so on."

Not quite convinced, but eager to be left alone, the student hands his completed assignment to the classmate for copying.

After the deadline, the student asks: "Did you really change the names of all the variables?"

"Sure!" the classmate replies. "When you called a function f, I called it g; when you called a variable x, I renamed it to y; and when you were writing about the log of x+1, I called it the timber of x+1..."

Life is complex: it has both real and imaginary components.

A mathematician and his best friend, an engineer, attend a public lecture on geometry in thirteen-dimensional space.

"How did you like it?" the mathematician wants to know after the talk.

"My head's spinning", the engineer confesses. "How can you develop any intuition for thirteen-dimensional space?"

"Well, it's not even difficult. All I do is visualize the situation in arbitrary N-dimensional space and then set N = 13."

A math professor is talking to her little brother who just started his first year of graduate school in mathematics.

"What's your favorite thing about mathematics?" the brother wants to know.

"Knot theory."

"Yeah, me neither."

Just some funny jokes I found...!

Hi Lazernugget;

Good jokes the knot theory I can personally identify with.

**I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.**

...It all started when these mobsters (called the Al-ge-bra gang) were caught smuggling these items (protractors, rulers, slide rules, tape measures, and compasses) into our country.

...The authorities were quick to arrest them, and the gang was sent to trial....they were charged with possessing weapons of math instruction........

Another Joke I found...
