Calvin and Hobbes on Math

Like many students, Calvin has never been confident with numbers. He’s often forced to ask Susie Derkins for answers in class, and makes full use of his surprisingly math-literate tiger, Hobbes, for homework help. I’ve shown some of these C & H strips before a lesson as a way to try to illustrate the somewhat arbitrary nature of mathematics.


Be careful with this one. Some students can really run with the math atheist idea:


I think Hobbes is on to something. Vector addition perhaps? A+ for effort and ingenuity, that’s for sure!

And lastly, who knew that tigers had developed the ability to understand and work with imaginary numbers?
