Skits in this Episode: "Infinity" A music video by the Jets about the concept of infinity. (Note: This segment first appeared in Episode 302.) "Mathman - Mr. Glitch Plays" Mathman is out walking his dog, Mathdog, so Glitch is in his place. Glitch has to determine the truth and falsehood of statements regarding who's better in math. Glitch correctly guesses false on the first two statements (that tall people are better in math than short people and that those who wear glasses are better in math than those who don't) but fails the last statement (Curly-haired people from Cleveland are better at math than anyone else) believing it's true. Mathman points out that it's false, as all sorts of people are good at math, and so Mathdog consumes Glitch. (Note: This segment first appeared in Episode 414.) "Phone Call" When a burglar is robbing a house, someone calls him and tells him a math problem - Add the year of your birth, the year something important happened in your life, then take the difference between that year and the current year, and your age at the end of this year. Then divide by two and the result is the current year. When the burglar does the problem, he is caught by the police. The burglar tells the police officer the problem and she is amazed, but arrests him anyway. "Animation - Estimation" A short person tries to pick an apple off of a tree. Estimating that he's three heads tall and that the tree is 12 heads tall, he gets three other people of the same height to stand on each other's shoulders and he goes on top and gets the apple. "Mathnet: Despair in Monterey Bay Part 2" After some gunshots, the Despair Diamond is missing. Pat and George find a tape recording of gunshots in a trash can and figure that the thief turned on the tape and took the diamond while everyone was hiding. They assume that Archie Leach took the gem, as he is leaving the party by motorboat. The coast guard catches up to him as he is capsized, but nothing is found on him. Pat and George figure that the diamond is in the Pacific Ocean, so they plan to dive for it. Using triangulation, they get information from two witnesses who saw the boat sink from two different directions. Now that they know where the boat sank, they have to find the gem as they dive.

Skits in this Episode: "Mathman: Math Myths" In this installment, Mathman must dispel math myths regarding where and when math is used. The first is that you only need math in jobs that require handling money, such as being a banker. Mathman points out that there are other jobs in which math is used, such as being a scuba diver, or a choreographer, or an airplane pilot, so the statement is false. The next is that math isn't used outside of school. Mathman gives many examples of how math is used outside of school, but in this season, the amount of time Mathman has to make a decision becomes important. Mathman failed to say false in time, so Glitch eats him, figuring, "Play by the rules, get eaten by the rules." "Square One Challenge" Another installment involves a tower of blocks, a statue of Mr. Beasley, and comparing 60% of 80 to 80% of 60. "Mathnet: Despair in Monterey Bay Part 2" The continuation of the Monterey Bay case.moreless

"Mathcourt" The Honorable Sandra Day O'Crater presides over this session of this noble court. In this first case, the defendant is accused of paying less than the billed price for "Mega Fries." The trick is that both the Mega Fries container and the standard fries container have the same volume. Therefore, even though one appears much smaller, it really holds the same amount of fries. "Comedy & Home Improvement Hour" This lead-in bit serves as an intro to the next song routine. "Polka Patterns" Weird Al Yanovic sings about how he can see patterns everywhere. The bathroom is just one of the many places where you can find cool and attractive patterns. "Math Promo" Downtown Julie Brown promotes Mathematics as a mental tool. "Phone Call" A burglar demonstrates a number trick that allows you to come up with the current year. "New Detective" Vern of "Vern & Vern" fame learns from Dick of Dick & Vern fame that Kate Monday no longer appears on Mathnet. The current season will star Pat Tuesday. "Mathnet: The Case of the Unnatural, Part 1" George Frankly is fascinated with an ex-journeyman baseball player named Roy (Lefty) Cobbs, who is currently on a hot streak in the minors. In the excitement and confusion, Pat and George must speak with Babs, a young girl who has been keeping up a number-pattern game with a friend, who happens to be Roy (Lefty) Cobbs. The number patterns he has been sending, break the rules they had established for their game.moreless
