I saw this episode of Seinfeld a couple of days ago. Now that my WCYDWT radar is finely tuned, I realized that it would be a good clip to show in a Math 10-3 class in the unit on rate and ratios. I know it’s a little dated (who would use a Wizard now?), but it’s still one of my favorite shows. Click on Morty to play the clip.
The one question kids need to ask will be apparent to them, but the math will be tricky for Math 10-3 students. In the end, it’s still not a particularly compelling problem, but maybe this is a better way of presenting it to students.
