Mathematical and Academic Jokes I have decided to start making a collection of mathematics jokes so if you have any you would like to contribute, please send them to me. Your name will appear on the site as credit for the joke unless you're shy in which case I 'll leave it off.
Cady, played by Lindsay Lohan, moves to the USA and upon entering high school is tempted by the popularity offered by hanging out with the eponymous Mean Girls.
Watch a video of this scene here. Things are only equations if they have an equals sign in them. Keep up the good work, internet mathematics pedants! The record-breaking Nobel Prize winner who pretended he was a gardener But what are limits? When and why do they not exist? Look at that subtle off-white coloring.
The tasteful thickness of it. It even has a watermark. Instead we need to calculate the limit of the expression at the point. If we look at this on a graph, we can see that this is also the case. This limit would be written as: If you pause the DVD at the right time, you can see: There are lots of ways to solve this limit.
However that is computationally very difficult. If you do this, then the function becomes: Remember the definition of a limit is that f x approaches it.
The contributor, Kenneth Wildenhain, points out that when he paused the DVD to take a look at the limit that some distortion made him think the negative sign in the numerator of the limit was a multiplication dot. This completely alters the meaning of the equation, and, with the help of an online limit calculator will resolve down to: Kenneth goes on to point out that the question was not read aloud and was simply displayed on the projector.
However this does beg the question as to how in the name of hell Carloine Krafft managed to differentiate both halves of the fraction TWICE and then solve each of them for 0 in 13 seconds? Taylor expansions are a much quicker way to go if you know them. A film where the jokes are funny, I have mathematically consistent head-canon I can blog about, and Glenn Coco gets 4 candy-grams.
Really worryingly, I was able to write that out verbatim from memory. This article relied heavily on symbolab.writing a mathematical proof.
Before we see how proofs work, let us introduce the ’rules of the game’. Mathematics is composed of statements. The Law of the excluded middle says that every statement must be either true of false, never both or none.
If it is not true, then it is considered to be false. "It is an important and popular fact that things are not always as what they seem. For instance, on the planet earth, man has always assumed that he was more intelligent than dolphins because he had achieved so much: the wheel, New York, wars.
Recently I watched this YouTube video called "Mathematical Proof Of No God" where this guy used Set Theory to prove that God doesn't exist. Being intrigued by that, I set out and successfully proved the same exact thing, using the same exact assumptions he used but with one differece: I used Boolean Logic and he used Set Theory.
The bible is written in a symbolic, cryptic & numerical code. This is the Christian Bible Code of both testaments! This site is intended as a resource for university students in the mathematical sciences.
Books are recommended on the basis of readability and other pedagogical value. Topics range from number theory to relativity to how to study calculus.
