'MATH FAILS' IS A BIG SUCCESS

by Barry Hoffman May 22, 2016

 

Math Fails is a new zone on Hoffkids that has been requested by students for some time. What is a math fail? A math fail is usually an advertisement, sign, coupon, or any real world math mistake by a company or business. Many times they are funny and sometimes they require math skills and good observations to notice the mistake. Then the laugh comes.

 

Many math fails that are found in the world seem to deal with prices and rates. Some include wrong percents, typos, or silly posters.

 

The Math Fails zone includes a 5 star rating under each item; so please rate. Remember, the more stars you give it, the more you like how dumb the math fail is!

 

Please visit Hoffkids' Math Fails, and enjoy the real math mistakes. If you find one out in the world, take a picture of it and email it to me at Hoffkids@gmail.com. If you find a good one on the internet that you want added to Math Fails, simply CONTACT me, and in the message area provide the direct URL so I can take a look. Check back often for new ones being added.

 

Math Fails at Hoffkids; the only place where failing at math can be truly funny.
