VIP Seating

You may not be as important as Eu Cker-rently believe.

Better to be moved up to a better place than be asked to give up your seat to someone else.

Unless you can just play that guy on TV and make lots of money at it.

Where Did Math Begin?

Based on a true story. Meaning that was a real conversation.

The veracity of the statement itself is still under review.

Not sure where I pulled "Og and Groog" from, but there wasn't even a hesitation in naming them.

Model Problem

Literally, a ''model'' problem.

But America's Next Top Outlier just isn't as catchy a title.

Exponential Humor

A social media comic in a comic on social media.

It's a function of math humor.

(x, why?) Mini: B Squared

(Click on the comic if you can't see the full image.)

I actually drew this on my blackboard first. In chalk. And I didn't have a camera on me. Sigh.

Oddest part: we weren't talking about Pythagorean Theorem. We were Completing the Square, but that's (b/2)2, which doesn't have the same ring to it.

Where We Are

Scary moment is when a student says, ''Don't worry, Mr. Burke. I got this.'' as they run toward the edge. You hope they can fly. And some of them soar!

And other times ... you're just glad it's Friday. Regroup for Monday.

On a side note: Today is 22 / 23 / 24, which (like most of these curious dates) happens only once per century although 32 / 33 / 34 will occur on 9/27/81. I can't guarantee I'll still be making these at that point.

(x, why?) Mini: Opening Day!

FYI: that's not a weird baseball score. That's a double play. Or three sides of a triangle.

Baseball has always been a classy game, being played on a Diamond, and not on a Square.

Teacher Haiku III

Shoutout to Jason Deeble's Monster Haiku. I met Jason up at Lunacon.

Best part about it was that I hadn't quite made it over to his table in the Dealers Room when he called me over, recognized me and remembered me from (x, why?). Made my day, and I gave him one of first of my first-ever (x, why?) bookmarks. Next day, he calls me over, and we're deriving the formula for the surface area of a sphere with another dealer. The life of math teachers!

I met Jason two years ago (and maybe the year before that, too). I had given him a sheet with some of my comics on it, and he had actually already seen it somewhere in the hotel, near the freebies table. And he remembered me two years later, so ... Cool Guy.

And check out Monster Haiku. (Not an April Fools prank!)

I thought about switching comics with someone, but that trope is getting kinda old, which is to say that I got the idea way to late to actually arrange it.

Happy Easter!

At least I didn't make a 'multiplying' joke.

Funny thing is how easily they copy & paste when they're lined up like that!

Obviously, they're imaginary! The spuds, that is.

Don't let historical inaccuracies (like letters walking across the beach) spoil a good comic!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!
