Morning Mathematical Monsters & Maniacs!
(Today’s post is sponsored by the letter “M”)
Over the past 600+ episodes, The Simpsons has taken us on an amazing mathematical journey involving fractions, probability, Fermat’s last theorem, and hundreds of other aspects from the wonderful world off mathematics.
And what better way to start your week, then by discussing math Monday morning?
101 years ago today, the “eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month” of 1918, the armistice took effect marking a ceasefire between the allied forces and Germany, leading to the end of World War I. In honour of the signing of the armistice, we are celebrating Rememberance Day in Canada, Veterans Day in the US, and similar holidays in countries around the world.
This week we look at the first mention of World War I and armistice in The Simpsons.
