Okay. Want some math fun? Want to stir up the neurons in your brain a little without breaking a sweat? In true nerd style? Have a go at these.
If you rearrange the letters in these words, you can get a math term. I’ll give you the letters and a list of answers. You rearrange the letters and find the answer in the list. Here goes. I don’t think it’s all that easy.
Example: a garble Becomes: algebra
Another example: problem in Chinese Becomes: incomprehensible
You try these:
I’m a dot in place, I’m a pencil dot, algorithm, innumerable, calculating rules, I call a count, ahh! arithmetic gems, n is- n is not etc, get a no in, clack! total up score, wasn’t here, the classroom, silent, cost me time, twelve plus one, accord not in it
Answers are here: a decimal point, inconsistent, calculation, decimal point, logarithm, the answer, listen, negation, contradiction, higher mathematics, pocket calculators, integral calculus, eleven plus two, a number line, school master, committees
Most of these are from “Twenty Years Before the Blackboard” by Michael Stueben
