Randall Munroe, the creator of the popular webcomic xkcd has this comic about fairy tales and math mixing together. This is quite an old webcomic, number 872. However, when I looked to see if anyone had written a version of the fairy tale, I didn't find any. Of course, I didn't look that hard; I was already thinking of my own version of the stories. Here are some of my attempts.

- Inductive White and the (N-1) Dwarfs
- The Ants and the Grasshopper Live
on a 3-Manifold

- The Countably Infinite Little Pigs

I would be very curious to see how someone can significantly introduce eigenvectors into Cinderella. Or manage to write a story about Goldilocks and the three bear that relates to Newton's method and for it to be a significant departure from the original story. In general, I hope that some of these mathematized fairy tales can be educational in introducing mathematical concepts. For example, the tortoise and the hare is a good candidate to introduce ideas from calculus. But I was beat to that punch by Zeno of Elea by some 2,400 years.
