Math Puns

Welcome to the Punpedia entry on math puns!  ➕➗➖✖❤

This is a huge category of puns, as there are so many topics and branches of mathematics – whether it’s calculus, trig, algebra or simple arithmetic, we’ve done our best to have you covered with our extensive list of math puns.

While this list is as comprehensive as possible, it is specific to math puns. If you’re interested in similar topics, we’ve got science and chemistry puns on the way!
