"Harry's School Daze" is the For Real Segment for "The Icky Factor".


Harry is terrified about his first job as a substitute teacher, but is pleasantly surprised to find a classroom full of nice kids who appreciate his ability to juggle. When he asks the class to rearrange the desks for a quiz, the students try various configurations to have equal number of desks in each row ("column," actually). They even try five in each row, but one row is one desk short, meaning it has only four desks. By the time they’ve determined that four rows of six desks works best for the size of the room, they’ve learned the factors of 24, and are well-prepared for the quiz.
