Last month, my calculus class noticed that they would be having class on Halloween.

*Do we really have class?* they asked. *Yes, it’s an 8am class, why would we cancel it?*

*Can we wear costumes?* they asked. *Yes, you can dress as your favorite mathematical function.*

*Can we get extra credit if we dress as a math function? *they asked. *Sure, why not, but I’m bringing my camera.*

This week they are a little more nervous about the idea… *we’ll look like geeks!* they said. I said, *Well, if you’re trying to win a “scariest costume” contest, what could be scarier to people than a logarithmic function?*

Will they dress up? No idea. But if they do, I’ll post the pictures.

I hope they do! I can’t wait to see what they come up with… you know, I was pondering this all morning. What would I dress up as?

I hope they don’t dress up as the null set.
