They don't know how to integrate.

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

The officer told me to never drink and derive.

He makes sure to grab it by the +c

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

He was viewing graphic material

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.”

Derivative humor.

You have to know your limits.

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

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 everything on this site is a derivative.

Never mind, actually it's just derivative.

They hate integration.

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...

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.

I told them their opinion would change over time.

It’s very hard to differentiate between them.

Because they are really bad at integrating.

He made it his life’s goal to tackle one of the greatest unsolved calculus problems in history. For months he worked, filling blackboards with numbers and lines, to no avail.

I told him that Newton was very important for inventing the laws of motion and calculus (which I wish he never had). He still didn't get how important he is in history. I guess he didn't understand the gravity of the situation.

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...

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?

The characters keep breaking their limits.

Calculus jokes are mostly derivative, trigonometry jokes are too graphic, algebra jokes are usually formulaic, and arithmetic jokes are pretty basic.

But the occasional statistics joke is an outlier.

It has its limits

But graphing is simply where I draw the line.

Whoops. Meant to type 130. Forgot that the camera adds 10 pounds.

Whoops. Meant to type 130. Forgot that the camera adds 10 pounds.

Hopefully it can show me how to integrate my natural log into someone else's vector space

It just derives me crazy

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

You! Shall! Not! Pass!

The calculus had built up, and it was starting to get quite hard.

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."

Cop said I was deriving over the limit.

The man immediately replies :

Drinking and deriving

The cops said they were drinking and deriving.

We would all derive fun from it

Apparently they opposed integration.

Plus C vs. Ferguson

I found it a little derivative.

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:

They always go off on tangents in class.

A young lady approached him and asked what was wrong

He replied “It’s complicated”

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.
