math jokes 4 mathy folks
 live. laugh. learn.

"Math Jokes 4 Mathy Folks is a delightful read. […] I highly recommend this book as a diversion from the rigor of mathematics. It allows us to have a good laugh (or a long groan) at a joke that only ďmath nerdsĒ would get, and it points out that humor can be found in all mathematical applications, even a telescoping series."
                                                            – Leah Evans, High School Teacher, Loveland, OH
                                                                 (review in the Mathematics Teacher)

"There were some interesting books [at the NCTM bookstore], but the one I just had to buy was Math Jokes 4 Mathy Folks by G. Patrick Vennebush. How could I resist? It shows what a math geek I am that I was laughing out loud while reading some of the jokes. This will be a great resource for any of the math presentations and classes I give."
                                                            – Susan Midlarsky, Consultant/Tutor/Trainer, Verplanck, NY

"Math Jokes 4 Mathy Folks is a must-read for every mathematics teacher. Iím personally delighted with this collection, because I run out of one-liners about two-thirds of the way through every semester."
                                                            – Harold Reiter, Professor, Charlotte, NC

"Patrick Vennebush has put together the most comprehensive set of mathematical jokes I have ever seen. Some of them are extremely funny, some Iíve heard before, and some I just donít get. But if you like math and you like jokes — or if you need a joke to liven up an otherwise dull and boring lecture — then you need to buy this book."
                                                            – Guy Brandenburg, Middle School Teacher, Washington, DC

"This book contains a lot of jokes I hadnít heard before, and Iím a very funny person. Of course, thatís not necessarily a contradiction."
                                                            – Martin Funk, High School Teacher, Winnetka, IL

"Iíve known Patrick Vennebush for many years, and I never thought of him as funny. After reading this book, youíll see what I mean. I havenít laughed so hard since I discovered that imaginary numbers are just numbers with a not‑so‑real complex. Enjoy!"
                                                            – Edward Burger, Professor, Williamstown, MA

"This is a book that every math teacher from elementary school through college should have in their classroom library. Who said math canít be funny?"
                                                            – Victoria Miles, Middle School Teacher, Weymouth, MA

"Thank you for writing this fun book!"
                                                            – Jim Olsen, Professor, Western Illinois University
