Simpsons News — Posted 23 Mar, 2002 by Scott

Hey party people. A recent story done by the Los Angeles Times has done a story on how educational in the field of Math the Simpsons show is. How may you ask? Well the article gives a great example:

Two math professors, Andrew Nestler of Santa Monica College and Sarah J. Greenwald of Appalachian State University in North Carolina, have compiled more than 100 math references, from the simple to the cutting edge, in the show's 13-season run. Wow.. who would have thought.
