Mr. Constant Value and Mr. e<sup>x</sup> were walking down the street, and accross the street they saw one of the Derivative gang.

"Oooh, let's not go that way," Mr. Constant Value said.

"Bah, he's no big deal," replied Mr. e<sup>x</sup>.

"If I run into him I'll become nothing!" Mr. Constant Value exclaimed.

"He can't do nuthin to me," answered Mr. e<sup>x</sup>, and he walked across the street to the member of the Derivative gang.

"Hello," he said, "I'm Mr. e<sup>x</sup>."

"Hi," the guy replied, "I'm Mr. <i>d</i>/<i>dy</i>."

There are worse ones. Such as, what do you call a blind dyslexic person? A secant. And, what do you get when cross a mountain climber with a mesquito? Nothing, you can't cross a scaler with a vector.

I assume you've heard the one about the constipated mathematician?

I have nto heard that one, and am choosing to ignore the part of my brain that is screaming "no, you fool, don't do it! Stop now before it is to late!"
What is that joke?

What do you get if you cross a sheep with a kangaroo?

Sheep*Kangaroo*cos(theta)

Actually dot product is |A| * |B| * cos(theta).

Cross is closer related to sine (the more orthogonal two vectors are, the greater the cross product). Anyway, the only geometric representation of a cross product that comes to mind, besides finding a vector orthogonal to both the inputs, is that |A x B| is the area of the parallelogram of which two sides are described by A and B.

Ha ha, ruined your joke with math! ;P

Here's an old one.

There are 10 types of people in the world: Those who understand binary and those who don't.

Should I be worried that I read '10' as 2 when I first saw this?

Anyway:

Teacher: "Who can tell me what 7 times 6 is?"
Student: "It's 42!"
Teacher: "Very good! - And who can tell me what 6 times 7 is?"
Same student: "It's 24!"

One day, Jesus was explaining to his disciples, "Heaven is a bit like y = x² + x + 1"

One disciple leaned over to another, and said "I don't understand!"

The second disciple whispered back, "Don't worry, it's just another one of his parabolas."
