Abstract:

The Simpsons has established itself as an award-winning international pop culture phenomenon and is also the longest-running sitcom of all time. But did you know that "The Simpsons" also contains over one hundred mathematical moments, with material ranging from arithmetic to geometry to calculus? There's even a resident mathematician/inventor, Professor Frink. Join us as we present some of our favorite mathematical excerpts from "The Simpsons" and explore the related mathematical content, accuracy and pedagogical value. See simpsonsmath.com for more information.
