Mr. Alexander O'Connor's curator insight, March 25, 2014 1:33 AM

Using humor in all teaching works very well to help the brain engage and the frontal lobe retain the information. As shown in the in-depth article on http://www.middleweb.com/5053/humor-in-the-classroom/ many doctors and professors of the field agree. This article goes through the points made by several key figures such as Sidney Harris, a man who has made maths fun through cartoons for years. As well as this it will give the students a reason to remember the maths behind it so that when they want to relay the jokes to their classmates they will want to get it right.
