EASIER THAN YOU THINK...

Fun Stuff

A cartoon about finding x drawn by Wade Clarke in 2005. It shows a right angled triangle with short sides 3 and 4 cm each and the hypotenuse marked x. The question says find x. Someone has circled the x and written, Here it is!Mathematics has its lighter side.  I believe humans have always thought, puzzled, joked and explored ideas … especially those that are important to them.

Mathematics also provides rich pickings for cartoonists.  I decided to feature a cartoon produced by a fellow Australian that ‘went viral’ about ten years ago. Wade Clarke is a Sydney-based musician, visual artist, game author and writer who deserves recognition for his major contribution to mathematical humour!

Let me encourage you to ‘go exploring’ on the Internet and in libraries for mathematical puzzles of the kind listed here.  Such things add much to ‘mathematical culture!’

Graeme provided my son with maths assistance in years 11 and 12 – up to his HSC. His results have spoken louder than any words or recommendation. Graeme’s expertise in maths and imparting knowledge, his patience and caring nature worked extremely well with my son. I believe my son regarded Graeme more as a friend than tutor towards the end of their time together. Thank you Graeme, I would happily recommend you to anyone.
