Episode Summary

EDIT
Adult Math: The James
The last class is nigh, and Frank has a test prepared. Before this, he demonstrates to the class an effective method for solving problems. Visualize the problem, he says, then assign values. As an example, Sue takes on the two-part problem of finding how many gallons will fill into a cylinder. On test day, Frank assigns everyone to solve Todd's fish problem and also tests the class's perception.moreless

      • As of September 1, 2001, only the Spanish version of this series was still being broadcast. Thus viewers of today may be unaware of the strategy in solving the fish problem. Here are the givens:
        HEAD (H) = nine inches
        TAIL (T) = half the head plus the body
        BODY (B) = head plus half the tail
        "The reason this problem looks complicated," says the host, is that there are too many unknowns. You can cut down on the number of unknowns by substituting for the tail in this expression. Since T equals half the head plus the body, that whole [quantity] can be sustituted here."
        I will not bother you with further details about the fish problem in this section.
