# Mathematics jokes 2

• Did you hear about the teacher who was arrested trying to board an airplane with a compass, a protractor and a calculator? He was charged with carrying weapons of math instruction.

• If it's zero degrees outside today and it's supposed to be twice as cold tomorrow, how cold is it going to be?

• A teacher was trying to impress her students with the fact that terms cannot be subtracted from one another unless they are like terms. "For example," she continued, "we cannot take five apples from six bananas." "Well," countered a pupil, "can't we take five apples from three trees?"

• Question: "How many seconds are there in a year?" Answer: "Twelve. January second, February second, March second, ..."

This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

• Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .
• Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.
• Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.
