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!’

You, sir, are the best teacher I’ve ever known in my life. You made maths the most interesting subject for me. I really can’t express my gratitude in words for your amazing teaching!! I never knew integration could be so easy! You are the reason why I excel at all my tests.

Thank you very much for these videos sir …
