4 MATHEMATICS: SURELY CAN BE EASY TO LEARN & F U N

5 SMILE the shortest way for communication

6 Almost any chapter of any lesson can be exlpained using a funny story

7 Funny Sunny

8 Golden rule: Making a joke is a very serious thing

9 Y is a function of x

11 So let us have some fun - action

12 4 examples

23 He had two (2) sons and he couldn’t find a way to share them three (3) pieces of land…

24 That is why he was for many months very unhappy…

25 He tried many ideas but still no solution was found which made him very sad…

26 Until he decided to do more deep research

51 TRIGONOMETRY

52 Trigonometry was invented in a jail many many years ago… His nickname : “KELLI TRIANTATRIA”

53 prisoner: since ages lots of sins…

54 After many years of unhappiness in jail things changed when the new Jail Manager arrived: He built colorful cells (They were all Right angled triangles)

55 Part of the new jail as seen from Google Earth:

110 The guards were watching him for many months being happy and silent.

111 They did not know what he was up to.

112 The guards were watching him for many months being happy and silent. They did not know what he was up to. Sometimes they were hearing him whispering something about : “sin” (was he going to confess more of his sins ????)

113 The guards were watching him for many months being happy and silent. They did not know what he was up to. Sometimes they were hearing him whispering something about : “sin” (was he going to confess more of his sins ????) They also were hearing him whispering something about “cos” or “cons” (was he preparing some conspiracy, or ESCAPE ?????).

114 The guards were watching him for many months being happy and silent. They did not know what he was up to. Sometimes they were hearing him whispering something about : “sin” (was he going to confess more of his sins ????) They also were hearing him whispering something about “cos” or “cons” (was he preparing some conspiracy, or ESCAPE ?????). So they tortured him to confess, but without any result…

115 They even hanged him upside down:

116 Even in this position he continued (smiling and without any complaints) his game:

117 They even hanged him upside down: He defined the RECIPROCAL (or secondary) trigonometric numbers: Even in this position he continued (smiling and without any complaints) his game:

147 They called this game: ”Two kisses per cycle”… (They kiss only at θ= 90 and θ= 270 degrees) Sam’s mom happily explained that:

148 After their parents found out, they met and had a very serious talk…

198 ARITHMETIC PROGRESSION

199 Sometimes in football the results are pre-arranged …

200 This makes the spectators angry and disappointed, since thy loose their time and their MONEY…

201

202 Yes, but how much money ????

220 Total = ( ) x 4 couples

221 Total = ( ) x 4 couples Total = ( ) x 8/2

222 Thanks to these guys ARITHMETIC PROGRESSION is so easy to be understood… The stairs of the stadium (and thus the price of the tickets) form an ARITHMETIC PROGRESSION

223 MATHEMATICS: 100% E A S Y & F U N

224 MA (TH) SMILE BOOK EU Project Proposal We hope that the Proposal will be approved by July 2013… ADVERTISMNET: Mathematical cartoons helping pupils to learn and Smile
