We all love stories and here is a story full of Calculus Puns. We can bet you would enjoy it even though you internally feel “I hate calculus”. Read on this funny calculus joke!

 Once a mathematics professor noticed that his kitchen sink at home broke down. He called a plumber. The plumber came the next day, sealed a few screws and everything worked perfectly. The professor was delighted. However, when the plumber gave him the bill a minute later, he was shocked. "This is a third of my monthly salary!", he yelled. Well, all the same, he paid it and the plumber said, "I understand your position as a professor. Why don't you come to our company and apply for a plumber position? You will earn thrice as much as you do now. But remember, when you apply, tell them that you completed only seven elementary classes." So it happened. The professor got a plumber job and his life significantly improved. He just had to seal a screw or two occasionally, and his salary went up significantly. One day, the board of the plumbing company decided that every plumber has to go to evening classes to complete the eighth grade. So, our professor had to go there too. It just happened that the first class was math. The evening teacher, to check students' knowledge, asked for a formula for the area of the circle. The person asked was the professor. He jumped to the board, and then he realized that he had forgotten the formula. He started to reason it, he filled the whiteboard with integrals, differentials, and other advanced formulas to conclude the result he forgot. As a result, he got "minus pi r squared". He didn't like the minus, so he started all over again. He got the minus again. No matter how many times he tried, he always got a minus. He was frustrated. He looked a bit scared at the class and saw all the plumbers whisper: **"Switch the limits of the integral!"**

Calculus Humour

1. A professor just showed in one of my engineering classes:

ex 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 ex asks "Why are you running away?" The constant answers, "That's a differential operator. If it acts on me, I'll disappear." ex says "I'm ex, I don't have anything to worry about," and keeps walking. When he reaches the differential operator, he says "Hi, I'm ex."

The differential operator responds, "Hi, I'm d/dy."

1. Two mathematicians were having lunch at a diner and got into a rousing discussion about the state of mathematics education in the US.

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, they would ask the waitress a simple calculus question: the integral of 2x dx. If she didn't know the answer, the first mathematician would win. If, however, the waitress was able to give the correct answer, the second mathematician would win.

After a short while, the first mathematician excused himself to go to the restroom, and the second mathematician urgently called over the waitress.

"Hi, sorry to bother you," said the second mathematician, "but my colleague and I have a bet going and I'd like to ask a favor: the next time you swing by the table, we'll ask you a question. Would you mind just answering 'x-squared'?" The waitress nodded approvingly with a "Sure thing," and headed off.

The first mathematician returned to the table, and soon enough, the waitress came back to the table to check on them.

The first mathematician looked up at the waitress. "I have a bet going with my colleague here. I was wondering if I could ask you a math question."

"OK, shoot."

"What is the integral of 2x dx?" he asked, a wry and slightly condescending smile appearing on his face. The waitress looked at the pair of them, and said plainly, "x-squared."

"A-ha!" said the second mathematician. "You see, my good man, the average person does know more than you assumed!" Shrugging, the first man reluctantly agreed. "Yes, I suppose you're right. How much did we wager again?"

Before the first mathematician could fish out the money from his wallet and grumble, the waitress cut in: "I'm sorry, but you forgot the constant."

Summary

These puns and jokes are not intended to run down the seriousness that one needs to give to the study of Calculus. It is recognized that the study of calculus demands rigor and perseverance.

However, these jokes are only meant to lighten up tougher moments when you feel Calculus is driving you up the wall.

Remember, to study calculus we need to get our foundations infractions, trigonometry, and algebra very clear and once that happens, you can rest assured that Calculus puns and Calculus jokes make the study of calculus a little lighter giving it much required lighter moments.
