After waiting 20 minutes with little movement, he decides to catch up on his homework. 5 Minutes in, he feels thirsty and realizes he has an unopened bottle of Coke in his backpack. He takes it out and opens it. However, as soon as he takes his first sip, a nearby police car start flashing it's ligh...

Two calculus professors are grabbing dinner together.

He makes sure to grab it by the +c

So Newton's work was merely derivative

You! Shall! Not! Pass!

There’s too many natural logs for my liking

Cauz they ain't no limit to how much I want to define the area under your curves.

Derivative humor.

So his friend, curious now, asks :

\- 72043 divided by 17 ?

The man immediately replies :

\- 6.

\- But... that's wrong!

\- Yep. But it's fast!

They’re gonna replace u

but after a while, it started going off on a really weird tangent.

Math debaters

Because it’s hard to differentiate between them.

Drinking and deriving

At this rate, he’ll never be in class on time.

I sometime wonder why I thought I should SINE up for this.

He remembered to add the sea.

... I should have seen the warning sines.

They don't know how to integrate.

Because they don't like integration.

Because its illegal to drink and derive

...he was against integration.

It really pushed their *limits* on *integration*

should be an integral part of this sub

White people have never been good at integration.

Apparently he was drinking and deriving

I told them their opinion would change over time.

Because they hated integration so much.

Verbatim from what my professor just showed in one of my engineering classes:

e^x and a constant are walking down the street together when the constant sees a differential operator coming their way. He starts to run away, and e^x asks "Why are you running away?" The constant answers, "That's...

Because a true pirate never forgets the C .

Integrals are more than just the sum of its parts!

You have to know your limits.

Two professors are at a restaurant, arguing about the state of education today. "Nobody learns calculus anymore," lamented the first. "That's not true," replied the second, "it's part of the freshman curriculum."

"Okay, I'll tell you what," offered the first professor, "we'll ask the waitre...

I found it a little derivative.

This joke *may* contain profanity. 🤔

F'- Can I be your derivative so I can lie tangent to your curves?

F''- Can I be your second derivative so I can test out your concavities?

F'''- Can I be your third derivative so I can jerk to you?

F''''- Can I be your fourth derivative so I can snap your neck?

F''- Can I be your second derivative so I can test out your concavities?

F'''- Can I be your third derivative so I can jerk to you?

F''''- Can I be your fourth derivative so I can snap your neck?

It has its limits

Because you might not be able to differentiate between them.

The cops said they were drinking and deriving.

Der - ribbit - tives

But graphing is simply where I draw the line.

My Calculus teacher told me:"Degrees are essentially useless in this class, we will use radians instead."

I replied:"Is that why you're teaching Calculus?"

I replied:"Is that why you're teaching Calculus?"

One of her homework problems was assigned to page 45 in the textbook, but she couldn't find the problem. I suggested, "Maybe you have the Chinese edition of the book." She goes, "The Chinese edition?"

Y'know, the Wong one.

Y'know, the Wong one.

... to this day I have Vieta flashbacks.

We would all derive fun from it

This joke *may* contain profanity. 🤔

The setting is Ohio State University about six or seven years ago in a huge lecture hall (approximately 1000 students) for a Calculus final. Apparently this particular calculus teacher wasn't very well

Cop said I was deriving over the limit.

They're both hard for you

He went out on a lim.

I just gave "alternative" answers on a few problems.

and all the functions are invited. Some of them are radical, at least 1/3 of them are rational, and like all parties, there are a few odd ones talking to their imaginary friends. Amidst all of this revelry, ln(x) is talking to some trig functions, when he sees his friend e^x sulking in a corner.

...

...

Because everyone there hates integration.

You integrate it

Because they have trouble whenever they try integration.

I said," I like my logarithms like my women, all natural".

To L'Hopital.

Apparently they opposed integration.

They hate integration.

Integral of e^x because that's Se^x dx and it's never a good idea to sex the ex!

Two college professors are having lunch at a local diner.

Courtesy of my math professor:

Two mathematicians go to a bar after a rigorous day of number crunching. After a few drinks, the first mathematician begins to lament the current state of the general public's mathematical knowledge.

"People just don't know their calculus anymore!"

A student calls his college and says "I want to take calculus, but the system won't let me enrol". The woman on the other line looks at his record and says: "it looks like you're already taking a full course load! don't you know what the limit is?", to which he replies:

"That's what I'm tryi...

Calculator!

It’s the old meth math moth myth.

They didn't believe in integration.

... Apparently, I shouldn't drink and derive.

By the time I got to calculus in math, I realized I had reached my limit.

A mathematician goes a little wacky in the brain, so they put him in a Psychiatric Ward. While there, he realizes he can have a little bit of fun with the other patients. He walks up to one patient and says "Hey, get out of my face before I differentiate you!" Terrified, the mental patient runs away...

Person 1: What's the integral of 1/cabin with respect to cabin?

Person 2: A log cabin!

Person 1: No, a houseboat. You forgot to add the C!!

Person 2: A log cabin!

Person 1: No, a houseboat. You forgot to add the C!!

He gets stumped.

So he'd use natural logs!

Because he didn't believe in integration.

Some time after his death, the local townspeople found him sitting upright in his grave, furiously rubbing out page after page of calculus.

At first they were alarmed by the sight, but then they realised... he was only disintegrating.

But I teach calculus to international students at my local university, and they all integrate really well.

I'm not really good at writing stories so bear with me.

He should have them take Calculus tests instead of Citizenship tests.

So in my calculus class last year in math, there were these two Chinese twins. Ving, and Ling. Ving was always super cool with me. In exchange for answers (he was super smart) I would hang out with him and be his friend and stuff. After I cheated off of him and studied with him though, I did get to ...

I've seen this help students reading old material and I could definitely see why some English teachers do this, but I had no idea why my Calculus teacher was having us try it out.

...who used a ladder to solve a calculus problem written at the very top of his blackboard?

He really rose to the equation.

He really rose to the equation.

...such as teaching them calculus and microbiology.

Especially when they heard in Calculus they'd have to integrate.

Though I could have sworn the syllabus said "Calculus 2".

This joke comes from my father, who taught at a mostly black high school

During a calculus lecture:

"Can someone come to the board and integrate this?" he says, pointing to an equation

He looks around, wondering why no one has answered

Once again, he asks "Can someone com...
