Math Humor

As an Engineering student, I have a very soft spot on Math humor. Just recently I was studying for my Differential Equations quiz when I saw this on my book:

"Eliminate* the arbitrary constants c1 and c2 from the relation..
... blah blah blah...

*By differentiations and pertinent legitimate mathematical procedures. Elimination by erasure, for instance, is not permitted."
(from page 6 of Elementary Differential Equations 7th ed. by Rainville and Bedient --of course the 'blah blah' was not there.)


Okay. It may seem corny for some, but I honestly can't stop laughing when I read this because I remembered the time I was teaching my friend Calculus during summer.


[insert flashback moment here]
Noelle: Ang hirap! Hindi ko ma-eliminate yung x!

ME: (handing the eraser) O eto, matatanggal na yung x! :)

---TENEN! Eraser method was born! :)))))




Here are some pictures from the net that I find really amusing:

    Hi Claum, I got these pics in my friend's email! Laugh out loud! I haven't yet undergone Calculus subjects but I am looking forward to learn more the subject! Woaaah, I think practice lang tlga ang memorization of formulas ang kelangan! Which I hated most kung Math, pero I love Math though! hahahah..Astig napost ba! Cge yan din gawin ko to find x!
