Episode Summary

EDIT
Episode 303
AIRED:
"Close Call" The popular little game show takes on a new format. Arthur and Luisa ask the audience in advance to estimate the number of bottle caps on a bird feeder. The audience member whose estimate comes closest joins two other contestants (as in The Price is Right) for the main game. The next two estimation games are scored by a new estimate-o-meter. On it is a range of numbers; the better a contestant's estimate, the more points he/she gets. Lyle, Jessica, and audience member Thomas are asked to estimate the number of characters in a hieroglyphics panel, as well as the length of a column made from squares. "Math Pitch" George Washington kids us not: mathematics is more than arithmetic. "Exclusive Music Video: Tappin' The Rhythm" Guest Savion Glover tap-dances through a song about the different kinds of notes that fill up one bar on a music staff. "Animation: Beasley and Schneider" Mr. Beasley (Dirk Niblick's neighbor) answers the door to one of General Schneider's number puzzles. This is the first number puzzle: name the prime numbers between one and nine inclusive. "Savion Glover for Math" Savion Glover does a pitch for mathematics from the set of Tappin' The Rhythm. "Debbie Allen in Dancing to Health and Back" This was virtually the same piece on two-dimensional shapes Allen did in Episode 110, but with a different voice-over to start the sketch. "Elvis for Math" Cris Franco, impersonating Elvis, says that mathematics is a tool, just like a hammer. "Mathnet: The Case of the Ersatz Earthquake, Part 3" Everyone in L.A., especially the media, wants to pay Sybil Divine for that earthquake prediction. Kate and George meet with Los Angeles Mayor Quail [sic]. George shows a table of the Mayor's options. Back at the Mathnet offices, George checks his seismograph with alarm. he earthquake that hit City Hall during Sybil's press conference, did not register on his seismograph. He and Kate make a few quick phone calls. There were no detonations from bombs or construction companies. And Geological Society instruments can tell the difference between these and real earthquakes.moreless
