and if they can’t solve it, they go hungry.

The kids are having hot dogs, tater tots, and a math lesson for lunch.

Lunch and a Math Lesson 002

Yeah, this is a geek household.

(Props to the first reader who identifies the tater tot arrangement pictured above.)

    Well my first thought was AT&T, you know, “More bars in more places….”

    But I’m sure it is something much more intelligent than that.

  2. Jinglish says:

    It’s a Fibonacci sequence, in which each term is the sum of the two previous terms.

  3. Leatherwing says:

    Jinglish beat me to it. Fibonacci sequence. I miscounted the last row, thought maybe you were teaching them about prime numbers.

  4. Dominique says:

    I thought it was the Fibonacci sequence, but that doesn’t explain why there are three ones, or why the twos are duplicated. Maybe I r dumb, but I don’t think it’s the Fibonacci sequence.

    It would give us 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, not 1, 1, 1, 2, 2, 3, 4, 5. Hmmmm…

  5. Brian Dale says:

    You both beat me to it.

    Marko, have you yet fed them the mathematical snack that’s made with tortilla chips, cheese and salsa?

    Dominique: You’re looking at the wrong axis. Start from the top, not the right side.

  7. The right side of a bell curve. The extra ones out on the edge signify the kids.

    Foodonache Sequence. How cool.

  9. MarkHB says:

    Gah, pardon spelling. Foodinacci, rather.
