It must be the off season. Or the heat in the Northern Summer. Or desperation. Reader’s Digest has just published 37 Math Jokes . Mathematicians are not known for the jokes. But here are 3 goodish ones.

ANS: He’ll stop at nothing to avoid them.

ANS: A roamin’ numeral.

ANS: Probably.

Here is a classic MATHSPIG JOKE:

And while we are being crazy cool kids here is a TED Talk on Mathematicians Dancing. I would call this a Mathfail because these guys DO NOT look as though they are having fun. Or, maybe, just maybe, the success of a joke or a dance is all in the delivery.

NOTE: Students must hear terms clearly pronounced to learn them.

Mathspig spends some time on trains looking at nearby phone HOTSPOT names, so she went out looking for some fun mathsy WIFI names.

Surely,

IT = nerd behaviour = mathsy fun

SHOCK! HORROR! OUTRAGE!
Mathspig searched for days online. She only found 1, ONE, UNO, SINGULARITY, THE LONELIEST No., one vaguely mathsy WIFI funny (below).

Instead of showing WIFI maths funnies, Mathspig came up with a great MIDDLE SCHOOL MATHS WIFI CHALLENGE.

MIDDLE SCHOOL MATHS
WIFI CHALLENGE

SUMMARY
1. Find a test/worksheet for your class.

eg. Mathcentre NZ have some fabulous Middle School Worksheets with answers . (eg. BELOW)

2. Change your phone name and HOTSPOT password.

3. Test Answer is your WIFI HOTSPOT password!

If you do not know how to rename your phone or change the password, GOOGLE it.

It is easy.

4. When students have worked out their answers and accessed your HOTSPOT using the password, tell them to go this funny link Use the Wifi Force, Luke!

Here is a worksheet example:

So you have cracked the WIFI password (above). It’s time for some Fun, Fun, Funnies.

Here are Mathspig’s favourite WIFI names:

Duracell Bunny Arrested

Charged With Battery

Get Your Own Damn Wi-Fi

FBI Surveillance Van 4

Go home tourists

And check the links at the end of this post for a little bit of weird.

Weird 1:
Google Image this number: 241543903

It leads to a meme of people posting ‘put your head in a refigerator’ selfies. Why? Dunno.

Weird 2:
Google: Definition (Defn will do) of ‘askew’.

The Google page is askew!!!! Really. What is the angle of the page below horizontal. You can work it out.
