Did you hear about the numerologist (used to be a computer programmer, but they don't seem to get involved at this level any more) who kept celebrating Xmas early because:-

Here's a good variant:

There are 10 kinds of people: Those who don't know binary, those who know it when they see it, and those who don't forget you could also have a ternary number.

Ah, thank you. I must have learnt about the cross product at univeristy, but 24 years of doing other things have wiped it from my memory. Or 24 years of drinking beer...

The Sir Cumference joke is not mine, here is another groaner:

A redneck's kid came home from school, and the redneck asked "What did you learn in school today?"

"We studied pi R squared"

"What?  Everybody knows that pies are ROUND!"

"Owl elephant sin(theta)" tells you that "owl cross elephant" means the cross product of two 3-D vectors.  Cross product requires that both operands are vectors: you cannot calculate a cross product if an operand is scalar (not a vector), which sounds like scaler (someone who scales mountains).  The punchline recalls learning about cross products in maths class, where the instructor kept saying "you can't calculate A x b because b is scalar".

I particularly like the joke because it combines two genres: math jokes and elephant jokes.  However, it does have a limited audience and I had to have it explained to me the first time too.

Well you've lost me. I even tried saying them out loud in an American accent (I'm British). Still nothing. Them seem to rely on some word that sounds a bit like owl. Obviously, it won't be funny if you have to explain it, but I'm curious nevertheless.

To say that Andy Weir's The Martian is an exploration of math, Mars, and feces is a slight simplification. I doubt that the author would have any complaints, though.
