A Calculus Limerick

The integral of z squared dz
From one to the cube root of three
Times the cosine
Of three pi over nine
Is the log of the cube root of e


Topological

If you have a cross-CAP on your sphere,
And you give it a circle-shaped tear,
Then just shake it about
And untangle it out
Then a Mobius strip will appear!


Practical Applications

He's teaching her arithmetic,
He said it was his mission,
He kissed her once, he kissed her twice
and said, "Now that's addition."

As he added smack by smack
In silent satisfaction,
She sweetly gave the kisses back
and said, "Now that's subtraction."

Then he kissed her, she kissed him,
Without an explanation,
And both together smiled and said,
"That's multiplication."

Then Dad appeared upon the scene and
Made a quick decision.
He sent the boy three blocks away
And said, "That's long division!"
