They don't know how to integrate.

But at least you know exactly how steep the learning curve is!

It was very difficult to differentiate between them.

He makes sure to grab it by the +c

Two calculus professors are grabbing dinner together.

The first one says to the other: “Why do we teach our students calculus? They just cram it for the tests then forget it.”

The second professor says: “They don’t forget it after the final I’ll prove it to you. The next time the wai...

Four friends have been doing really well in their Calculus class: they have been getting top grades for their homework and on the midterm. So, when it's time for the final, they decide not to study on the weekend before, but to drive to another friend's birthday party in another city - even though t...

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

The officer told me to never drink and derive.

You shouldn’t drink and derive

A calculus professor explains an example problem to her class.

"To do this, you need to find the initial position of the object."

A confused student asks, "y?"

"y₀," says the professor.

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...

He calls it his Mathsters Degree.

Because they don't like integration.

Invents calculus and fucks all the coming generations.

Leibneiz: I've discovered calculus(1670s) Newton: Really? Seems derivative.

Because it’s hard to differentiate between them.

I told them their opinion would change over time.

There’s too many natural logs for my liking

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.

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?

A mathemagician

The characters keep breaking their limits.

You! Shall! Not! Pass!

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

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

... I should have seen the warning sines.

Drinking and deriving

The man immediately replies :

\- 6.

\- Yep. But it's fast!

His calculus had advanced to trigonometry.

Because you might not be able to differentiate between them.

They're both hard for you

It just derives me crazy

Because they hated integration so much.

Calculus jokes are derivative, trigonometry jokes are too graphic, algebra jokes are too formulaic but arithmetic jokes are just basic.

The outlier is the occasional statistics pun.

Calculus homework.

But graphing is simply where I draw the line.

The man was sitting at a library table

A young lady approached him and asked what was wrong

He replied “It’s complicated”

And showed his calculus homework

The cops said they were drinking and deriving.

I found it a little derivative.

We would all derive fun from it

Cop said I was deriving over the limit.

He wanted to test his limits.

by switching to radians.

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."

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.

You integrate it

He went out on a lim.

Apparently they opposed integration.

Integrals are more than just the sum of its parts!

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

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...

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

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

They didn't believe in integration.

Two college professors are having lunch at a local diner.

The first mathematician insisted that the general American populace was woefully inadequate when it came to understanding even basic math, while the second felt the average person knew more than they were given credit. They made a friendly wager and agreed that the next time their waitress came by, ...

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...

White people have never been good at integration.

Because they have trouble whenever they try integration.

It’s the old meth math moth myth.

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

They always go off on tangents in class.

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

His choices are a physicist, a mathematician, and an engineer.

I owned a car and I was good at calculus. They made me the "designated deriver".

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.
