Q: How is an artificial Christmas tree like the fourth root of -68? A: Neither has real roots

Salary Theorem: The less you know, the more you make. Proof: Fact #1: Knowledge is Power Fact #2: Time is Money We know that: Power = Work / Time And since Knowledge = Power and Time = Money It is therefore true that Knowledge = Work / Money Solving for Money, we get: Money = Work / Knowledge Thus, as Knowledge approaches zero, Money approaches infinity, regardless of the amount of Work done

Top ten excuses for not doing homework: I accidentally divided by zero and my paper burst into flames. It was Isaac Newton's birthday. I could only get arbitrarily close to my textbook. I couldn't actually reach it. I have the proof, but there isn't room to write it in this margin. I was watching the World Series and got tied up trying to prove that it converged. I have a solar powered calculator and it was cloudy. I locked the paper in my trunk but a four-dimensional dog got in and ate it. I couldn't figure out whether I am the square root of negative one or i is the square root of negative one. I took time out to snack on a doughnut and a cup of coffee. I spent the rest of the night trying to figure which one to dunk. I could have sworn I put the homework inside a Klein bottle, but this morning I couldn't find it.

Q: What did zero say to eight? A: Nice belt!! Q: What do you call a mathematician's bird that won't eat? A: A poly "no meal" Q: How does one insult a mathematician? A: You say: "Your brain is smaller than any ε > 0" Q: Why do you rarely find mathematicians spending time at the beach? A: Because they have sine and cosine to get a tan and don't need the sun! Life is complex: it has both real and imaginary components. Q: How do mathematicians induce good behavior in their children? A: 'If I've told you n times, I've told you n+1 times...' Theorem: Every positive integer is interesting. Proof: By contradiction, assume that there exists an uninteresting positive integer. Then there must be a smallest uninteresting positive integer. But that's pretty interesting! Therefore a contradiction! Q: What is purple and commutative? A: An abelian grape...

Will we be seeing you in Nottingham this September? #UoNFreshers

Good luck to everyone getting their A-Level results today!

Graduation Ceremony Ticket Collection Guest tickets will not be posted prior to the ceremony. Students will be sent a confirmation email a few days before the ceremony detailing the number of guest tickets that they have purchased and are asked to bring this email with them on the day. Graduands will be issued with the correct number of tickets when they arrive to register. If you are travelling separately please make arrangements to rendezvous with your guests to hand over their tickets. If guests are unable to make arrangements or are running late, graduands can make arrangements when they register for guests to collect tickets from the Foyer after student registration has closed. Please note that tickets will only be issued where the graduand has registered. The doors to the Graduation Hall will open for guests at the following times: 9.45-10.30am for morning ceremonies 1.45-2.30pm for afternoon ceremonies

If you are coming to the #uonopenday, then please come and speak to the current students about what it is like to study Mathematics at the University of Nottingham - we are the people in the green T-shirts!

Well done final year students for finishing your degrees, hope you all got what you wanted! Good luck to everyone else getting results tomorrow!

The Pass lists have been put up in the Atrium (A10 noticeboard) in the Mathematical Sciences Building. Judi

Today is the 363rd day of the year. 363 is the sum of nine consecutive primes and is the sum of 5 consecutive powers of three. Can you find them?

x^y = y^x has exactly one solution for distinct, positive integers x and y. Can you find it? #trivia

Can you solve the following problem? A 3 digit number is such that its unit digit is equal to the product of the other two digits which are prime. Also, the difference between its reverse and itself is 396. What is the 3 digit number?

However you will spend the upcoming vacation (revising, eating, revising, drinking, revising, sleeping, revising!) and whether you celebrate Christmas, Yule, Hanukkah, Hogswatch, or Newtonmas (or none of these), we wish you a wonderful holiday and a successful 2016!
