A mathematician confided

That a Mobius strip is one-sided

You'll get quite a laugh

If you cut it in half

For it stays in one piece when divided.

A mathematician named Klein

Thought the Mobius strip was divine

Said he "If you glue

The edges of two

You get a wierd bottle like mine"

I used to think math was no fun,

'Cause I couldn't see how it was done.

Now Euler's my hero,

for I now see why 0

= e ^{ip} + 1.

The perfidious lemma of Dehn

Drove many a man insane

But Christos Pop-

akiryakop-

olous solved it without any pain

The was a young student of Trinity

who computed the square of infinity

but it gave him the fidgets

to write down the digits

so he chucked it and took up divinity

A dozen, a gross and a score,

Plus three times the squareroot of four,

Divided by seven,

Plus five times eleven,

is nine squared plus zero, no more.

There once was a letter called tau

But no-one could figure out how

Some people were sure

It was pronounced 'tor',

But arguements still persist now.

A man had a certain evasion

For solving all difference equations.

He used random numbers

To cover his blunders,

And answers caused quite a sensation!

A man I once knew was a tutor

Who got himself into a stupor.

When d.e.'s were found

With errors unbound,

He out his fist through his computer!

A subject we did had a facility

For testing equations' stability.

When things did not work,

The class went beserk,

And erupted in violent hostility.
