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!’

Gone to a lot of sites and watched a lot of math lessons on the internet, but your lessons seem to sink in my mind better than others, perhaps you explain each step in a way that is meaningful to me…anyway, i think you are an excellent instructor, thanks for your help.
