That can only help the image of the mathematician and the thinker. <br /><br /><A></A><A></A>Posted by<A><B> </B></A><A HREF="http://geomblog.blogspot.com/2004/12/numb3rs.html" REL="nofollow" TITLE="hughesgctm at yahoo dot com">Cheryl</A>Anonymousnoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-6555947.post-1107112956603314812005-01-30T12:22:00.000-07:002005-01-30T12:22:00.000-07:00Numb3rs is one of the best shows to come around in...Numb3rs is one of the best shows to come around in a long time. I am speaking as a mathematician, but it does not put forth the stereotype that all mathematicians are "dorky" or even creepy. Of course, one should not ride a bike around Los Angeles, but it does keep my attention and is very intriguing at times. The supporting cast is also excellent. I hope the show runs for a long time to come. <br /><br /><A></A><A></A>Posted by<A><B> </B></A>JoeAnonymousnoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-6555947.post-1106600913702420342005-01-24T14:08:00.000-07:002005-01-24T14:08:00.000-07:00I saw Numb3rs last night and I was concerned about...I saw Numb3rs last night and I was concerned about the depiction of the African American character. It appeared to me that he never completed his assignment; was late with his assignment; and needed to be "helped" far too often. It was a negative depiction of African American males found far too often on TV.<br />With respect to the mathematics, I thought that it didn't do much to explain (and thus excite) to viewers mathematics theory. Rather the show just listed in rapid fashion some concepts and theories without doing much more. <br /><br /><A></A><A></A>Posted by<A><B> </B></A><A HREF="http://www.blogger.com/r?http%3A%2F%2Fgeomblog.blogspot.com%2F2004%2F12%2Fnumb3rs.html" TITLE="ekearney at afterwordsadvertising dot com">Abdiel</A>Anonymousnoreply@blogger.com
