#myfavfriday - Student Created Math Puns

So, I wasn't sure what to write about today, but I've been hearing a lot of math puns created by students lately, so I figured I would share:

A fellow Algebra 1 teacher in my building had this on the board (student created):
What is an owl's favorite subject?  OWLgebra!

A geometry teacher in my building told this one:
They were discussing transformations and students referenced the transformers.  Then, a student asked, "If there are 8 transformations, would that be Octomus Prime?!"

Sadly, there were a few told in my classes this week, but I can't remember any right now. (sure sign it's Friday after school)

Do you have any to share?


  1. Here are two of my favorites ...

    What did the acorn say when he grew up? Gee I'm a Tree (Geometry)
    What do you call a sun burnt man? Tan Gent (tangent)

    1. I've heard the geometry one, but not the tangent...AWESOME!!!

  2. Here's a bad one:

    What did our Hero say when he had his arch-nemesis Amiter at the point of his sword?

    Oh, I could do this all day! (Orange you glad I'm not going to?) ;-)
