Episode Summary

EDIT
Episode 117
AIRED:
"Animation: Perimeter" The perimeter of a shape is measured out in units. "Oops! Perimeter" In 1968, a hippie was supposed to find the perimeter of an 8-inch by 5-inch rectangle. He only came up with 8 + 5, or 13 inches, causing a disaster. He should have taken 8 + 5 and then multiplied by 2, to find the length of all the sides of the rectangle combined. "Bandanas" Cowboys who had just purchased 5 head of cattle need to find out how much fence they'll need, as each cow needs 20 square yards of space. Thus, they figure that the fence should cover 100 square yards. The schoolmom helps them find the rectangle that uses the least fence, and it's 10 X 10, which covers 100 square yards, but only needs 40 yards of fence. "Newsroom Interruption" This just in: Rectangles of the same area can have different perimeter. "The Math Mimes Two mimes, Rene and Marcel, find a loop of rope and make different rectangles with it. Marcel points out that rectangles of the same perimeter have different area, but Rene gets frustrated from reminding him not to talk. Finally, things get too much. "Bumper" A bumper that introduces alphanumeric code as a segue for the upcoming musical number. "Superspy" In this music video, "Mae East" sings about alphanumeric code. Using alphanumeric code you can send supersecret messages back and forth to your friends. "Bumper" A voice over demonstrates another alphanumeric message that translates to "I Want Dessert"." "Sculpture of Geometric Shapes" An animated segment in which a doctor examines X-rays from a sculpture of geometric shapes and explains their geometric implications. "Game Show: But Who's Adding" This is similar to "But WHo's Multiplying" except it involves adding. The two players move their rings on the board and call out the sum of the numbers in order to cover three numbers on the board with their color. "Mathnet: The Trial of George Frankly Part 2" George Frankly tells Kate of a plane service from Nomanisson Island to the mainland. That would mean putting more than 300 miles on his odometer. George and Kate go to Crusty's Garage, where George had his car checked before leaving for the Great North Woods. The odometer reading on the bill versus the odometer reading now, suggests George did rob the Next to the Last National Bank.moreless

    • TRIVIA (1)

      • The date on the bill from Crusty's Garage contradicts the computer display at the Next to the Last National Bank. And at the hearing, the date given by the prosecutor also doesn't coalesce.

    • QUOTES (2)

      • George: I don't have any witnesses. It's just my word against television. And you know when the jury of my peers sees the television tape, they'll believe it. People believe anything on television.

      • Mae East: It looks like only numbers / But it's a supersecret plan / If you don't know my personal code, you'll never understand / Write out the alphabet A to Z / Then underneath that you write 1 2 3 / Instead of writing S-P-Y, write 19-16-25 / Then when your friend sees the 19 - yes! / She'll check the code and translate "S" / The 16 is P, the 25 is Y, the secret word is S-P-Y...
