Episode Summary

EDIT
Episode 305
AIRED:
"Person on the Street" The person on the street asks ordinary people the question: "If someone is paid $10 a day, how long will it take for him or her to raise a million dollars? And then, how about a billion dollars?" "Million to Trillion" A booming voice relates the numbers Million, Billion, Trillion in terms of seconds. "Stadium Football Filling" The show continues its infatuation with the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, at Michigan Stadium (capacity: over 101,000). How many footballs would it take to fill the Michigan Stadium to the top? "Mathman: Hexagons" He can only eat hexagons (i.e., six-sided figures, which does not exclude concave polygons.) "Whatsina Name for Math" The first installment of Square One Challenge pits Kenny vs. Shalyn in a new format. With each question, two members of the SQ1TV cast give answers. It's up to the contestants to figure out whether the cast members are telling the truth or bluffing. Contestants' responses are shown in a "sets" diagram. "Peter Piper" John Moschitta Jr. recites Peter Piper numerous times: words per minute are measured. Repeat a segment first shown in the program's first season. "Mathnet: The Case of the Ersatz Earthquake Part 5" George puts the earthquake predictor to the test by asking her the outcome of a future football game. She falls for George's trap, because the teams George asks about, do not exist.

Just as this case ends, Kate and George get an assignment from the New York City Police, who are investigating another future-reader. Thus George and Kate head for the East Coast.moreless

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (1)

      • The Mathnetters close The Case of the Ersatz Earthquake on Wednesday, soon after a sports broadcast relates college football scores. In the days before ESPN 2, no college football teams played on Wednesdays. Even today, Wednesday afternoons have no college football powers, and certainly not the big powers like Syracuse or Michigan.

    • QUOTES (0)

    • NOTES (2)

      • The segments "Million to Trillion," "Mathman: Hexagons" and "Peter Piper" were not included in the version of this episode broadcast on the cable/satellite network Noggin.

      • The creation of Square One Challenge was done in part because the Season Two version, called Square One Squares, was way too close to the format of Hollywood Squares, which had stopped production (temporarily) in the summer of 1989.
