Mathlete's Feat [TABF16, 5/17/15]

Thanks to Jeff Westbrook for providing with the following summary, which we edited to remove spoilers: "Lisa and other kids on the Springfield Elementary Mathlympics Team compete against Waverly Hills Elementary... Springfield has a natural genius... who uses ancient techniques to compute geometric figures... [and] helps the Mathletes."

Lisa is on a math team and the show features the "most complicated math jokes ever" according to Al Jean's twitter.

Well-designed mathematics contests provide excellent vehicles for students to hone their skills, expand their knowledge, develop their ability to focus, practice creative problem solving, and join a community of peers who love mathematical challenges.
