Written for savvy and intelligent viewers, you don't have to love or know math to enjoy this novel "mockumentary".
The characters in this fast paced comedy have continued to develop with each season. The math is interesting and integrated so well that you will get the jokes even if you cannot always explain the math and you will also find yourself learning some math that you may not have known before.
The basic plot revolves around Felicia Roberts and Feng Wang, both of the Yale Funky Functions (the fictional Yale Math Team), and their adventures and rivalry as the team and its quirky band of mathematicians prepare to challenge rivals such as Harvard.
Along the way, egos clash, novel ways of paying tuition must be explored, new team members must be recruited, Felicia's "Prime Number Strategy" must be upheld, Feng's ukelele gets a workout, and the Funky Functions take their act on the road.
