Patterns, TV and Teaching

Math is getting a better reputation by the day don’t you think?  One thing that I noticed the other day, was the show Numb3rs. The show is pretty simple to explain, two brothers one of which is a math whiz and local University professor, another is a FBI agent.  The math whiz brother helps solve cases and is actually the main character of the show, probably the first math whiz main character who seems like a regular guy in the history of tv.

A friend who owns a gift basket business loves the show and thinks it should be required watching for anyone looking into the math’s or science’s as a career, because it can show exactly how good and intense it can be.

Do you agree?
