copas-an dari senior kawanku di universitas.
P.S. Berhubung kawan saya adalah anak fisika yang butuh bantuan dalam kalkulus, maaf maaf aja nih ya kalo ada anak matematika yan g tersinggung.
Dibawa santai aja ok?
(1) An engineer, a physicist and a mathematician are staying in a hotel.
The engineer wakes up and smells smoke. He goes out into the hallway and sees a fire, so he fills a trash can from his room with water and douses the fire. He goes back to bed.
Later, the physicist wakes up and smells smoke. He opens his door and sees a fire in the hallway. He walks down the hall to a fire hose and after calculating the flame velocity, distance, water pressure, trajectory, etc. extinguishes the fire with the minimum amount of water and energy needed.
Next, the mathematician wakes up and smells smoke. He goes to the hall, sees the fire and then the fire hose. He thinks for a moment and then exclaims, “Ah, a solution exists!” and then goes back to bed.
(2) Dean, to the physics department. “Why do I always have to give you guys so much money, for laboratories and expensive equipment and stuff. Why couldn’t you be like the math. department – all they need is money for pencils, paper and waste-paper baskets.
(3)A team of engineers were required to measure the height of a flag pole. They only had a measuring tape, and were getting quite frustrated trying to keep the tape along the pole. It kept falling down, etc. A mathematician comes along, finds out their problem, and proceeds to remove the pole from the ground and measure it easily. When he leaves, one engineer says to the other: “Just like a mathematician! We need to know the height, and he gives us the length!”
(4)Golden rule for math teachers: You must tell the truth, and nothing but the truth, but not the whole truth.
(5)A math professor is one who talks in someone else’s sleep.
(6)”Do you love your math more than me?”
“Of course not, dear – I love you much more.”
“Then prove it!”
“OK… Let R be the set of all lovable objects…”
(7)The physicist and the engineer are in a hot-air balloon. Soon, they find themselves lost in a canyon somewhere. They yell out for help: “Helllloooooo! Where are we?” 15 minutes later, they hear an echoing voice: “Helllloooooo! You’re in a hot-air balloon!!” The physicist says, “That must have been a mathematician.” The engineer asks, “Why do you say that?” The physicist replied: “The answer was absolutely correct, and it was utterly useless.”
that’s all… hope u guys don’t hate it. (-__-“)
