## Wednesday’s Math Puzzle

What is a math teacher’s favourite sum?
-Summer!

Teacher: George, you know you can’t sleep in my class!
George:I know. But maybe if you were just a little quieter, I could.

George: I don’t think I deserved zero on this test!
Teacher: I agree, but that’s the lowest mark I could give you!

Teacher: I want you to tell me the longest sentence you can think of
George: Life imprisonment!

-What do you call a teacher without students?
-Broke…oh wait, that’s a regular teacher

Teacher: Why have you got cotton wool in your ears, do you have an infection?
George: Well you keep saying that things go in one ear and out the other so I am trying to keep them it all in!

Kid comes home from 1st day at school. Mum asks, ‘What did you learn today?’ Kid replies, ‘Not enough. I have to go back tomorrow.’

Teacher: You copied from Fred’s exam paper didn’t you ?
George: How did you know ?
Teacher: Fred’s paper says “I don’t know” and you have put “Me, neither”!

Happy Wednesday, wherever you are! 🙂

“Life is a math equation. In order to gain the most, you have to know how to convert negatives into positives.” – Anonymous

“Every minute dies a man, Every minute one is born;”  I need hardly point out to you that this calculation would tend to keep the sum total of the world’s population in a state of perpetual equipoise, whereas it is a well-known fact that the said sum total is constantly on the increase.  I would therefore take the liberty of suggesting that in the next edition of your excellent poem the erroneous calculation to which I refer should be corrected as follows:  “Every moment dies a man, And one and a sixteenth is born.”  I may add that the exact figures are 1.067, but something must, of course, be conceded to the laws of metre.  ~Charles Babbage, letter to Alfred, Lord Tennyson, about a couplet in his “The Vision of Sin”

Happy Wednesday, wherever you are!
