36 Math Jokes to Get Every Nerd Through Pi Day
Celebrate March 14—aka Pi Day—with these corny math jokes, puns, and one-liners. Don't worry: Unlike pi, it won't go on forever.
Punny Pi Jokes
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 jokes for every occasion—even if only the smarty pants in the room will get them. Some of the best math jokes center around pi and Pi Day (3/14). Sure, there are really interesting pi facts out there, but these jokes prove that math can be funny, too. If you’re looking for ways to celebrate Pi Day, one way to enjoy it is to indulge in these 30+ hilarious math jokes.
