In a desperate attempt to get modern porky kids interested in mathematics, schools throughout the UK are trying to make the boring crusty subject more relevant.
And it's starting with Algebra. There's hardly a schoolboy or gal who doesn't know the old theorem "the rain in Spain stays mainly on the plain" Well The Spoof can sensationally reveal that henceforth the pie symbol (π), bane of so many scholars, will be replaced by a real pie!
