#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?

  2. Here's a bad one:

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

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