Math Jokes for Kids and Teachers
Introducing humor in a mathematics class, at any level, can help reduce students’ math anxiety and make math more interesting. Mathematical humor can be demonstrated in many forms: direct questions, stories, riddles, fill in the blanks, quotations, and even humorous illustrations.
Research shows that besides making a class more fun and interesting, humor also improves students’ test grades. The higher the level of mathematics, the more fun a class can be, since getting the humor requires an understanding of the math involved.
Other than making the class more relaxed and more fun, is there any educational value in using humor in a classroom? According to scholars and researchers, indeed there is!
Make telling math jokes a regular part of your mathematics classroom.
