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

SMILE the shortest way for communication

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

Funny Sunny

Golden rule: Making a joke is a very serious thing

Y is a function of x

So let us have some fun - action

4 examples

PYTHAGORAS theorem

1

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

That is why he was for many months very unhappy…

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

Until he decided to do more deep research

Pythagoras repeated his tests with many other triangles and he got the same result: Even in GCE School of Careers they will know about me some day…

2

TRIGONOMETRY

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

prisoner: since ages lots of sins…

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)

Part of the new jail as seen from Google Earth:

Our friend was happily standing for hours in one of the corners (facing the opposite wall)

BASIC Trigonometric Numbers :

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

They did not know what he was up to.

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 ????)

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 ?????).

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…

They even hanged him upside down:

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

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:

GRAPH of sin ( x )

The story of S AM and Th alia

Sam was following Thalia everywhere For example in thei “Luna Park” near the school

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

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

In order to understand the behaviour of Sam and Thalia, they recorded how S was “moving about” in accordance with where Th was at any moment:

ARITHMETIC PROGRESSION

Sometimes in football the results are pre-arranged …

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

Yes, but how much money ????

Total = (10 + 24 ) x 4 couples

Total = (10 + 24 ) x 4 couples Total = (10 + 24 ) x 8/2

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

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

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
