Like my favorite middle-school teacher always said: The problem with math puns is that calculus jokes are derivative, trig jokes are too graphic, algebra jokes are formulaic, and arithmetic jokes are just basic. (But I guess the occasional statistics joke is an outlier.)
If you are cringing right now, you know how my entire 8th grade math class felt every day. However, it is important to know a few good, short jokes for every occasion—even if only the smarty pants in the room will get them. In honor of Pi Day (3/14), here are 30+ math jokes guaranteed to multiply your enjoyment on this nerdiest of days. (Check out these hilarious nerdy quotes, too!)
