**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 “math nerds” 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.
I’m 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 I’ve heard before, and some I just don’t 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 hadn’t heard before, and I’m a very funny person.
Of course, that’s not necessarily a contradiction."

– Martin Funk, High School Teacher, Winnetka, IL

"I’ve known Patrick Vennebush for many years, and I never thought of him as funny.
After reading this book, you’ll see what I mean. I haven’t 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 can’t be funny?"

– Victoria Miles, Middle School Teacher, Weymouth, MA

"Thank you for writing this fun book!"

– Jim Olsen, Professor, Western Illinois University
