Great Pi/e Debate by Colin Adams & Thomas Garrity

Hilariously funny...just right for the classroom, or as a gift! Colin Adams and Thomas Garrity settle once and for all the burning question that has plagued humankind from time immemorial: "Which is the better number, e or pi?" In what could be the most important debate of the millennium, Williams College Professors Adams and Garrity use any means within their powers, legal or otherwise, to prove their point. Moderated by Edward Burger, our debaters challenge orthodoxy, brazenly flaunt convention and behave rather badly in their attempts to convince the audience of the absolutely ridiculous nature of their adversary's arguments. This event may have the historical significance of the Edict of Nantes, the Yalta conference, or the Kennedy-Nixon debates. Or perhaps not. But just in case, you don't want to miss it. The genesis of both numbers is explained and the entire debate lasts 40 minutes, just right for a high school or college class. Which number is the superior number? Which number deserves to be held in the highest regard? You may already have your strongly felt opinions but get ready to have them stood on their heads when you watch the Great Pi/e Debate!
