And They Counted Happily Ever After
(topic: Number Sense) - Hacker kidnaps the King of this fractured fairytale world, and demands a ransom of golden eggs. The Wicked Witch then casts a spell, taking away everyone's ability to count and making it impossible for the fairy tale folk to gather the required large number of eggs. With the safety of the King at stake, the kids must help the fairy tale folk understand the role of place value in our number system before time runs out! The Big Idea: With numbers and a system, you have the power to keep track of anything and everything on earth.

Sensible Flats
(topic: Area) - Our Cyber-Team is transported to a Wild West site to prove that Hacker has taken a larger piece of land than he is allowed. Hacker is in jail and the trial is about to begin, but is his homestead really larger than what Judge Trudy will allow? The kids must discover how to measure the area of his irregularly shaped property in order to find the answer. The Big Idea: To find the area of an object, count how many squares fit on it. But there's an easier way! Measure an object's dimensions, and you can use mathematics to calculate its area.

Clock Like An Egyptian
(topic: Timekeeping) - Dr. Marbles finds the encryptor chip (the computer chip that will enable Marbles to delete Motherboard's virus) in an ancient pyramid. But the Mummy who guards the pyramid finds Marbles. When the kids and Digit arrive, they must work their way through the chambers of the pyramid - find Dr. Marbles - and escape before a trap set by the Mummy seals them inside forever. How much time do they have? Unfortunately, they have no clock or watch to tell them how much time has gone by. Is the mission impossible? Not for our kids! The Big Idea: To measure the passage of time, choose a starting point and count up the beats of something that repeats at steady, regular intervals.

Zeus on the Loose
(topic: Fractions) - When the kids fail to stop Hacker from stealing Pandora's box in mythological Greece, they must solve a riddle and complete challenges to satisfy Zeus and earn a second chance. In the course of their adventure, Matt, Jackie and Inez discover that a fraction is a problem in sharing. The challenge is solving increasingly difficult problems in sharing while they confront a myriad of mythological creatures. The Big Idea: When you need to divide things up into parts and share them, fractions are the numbers you use.

Wed, Dec 2, 2015 -- 12:30am

The Secrets of Symmetria
(topic: Symmetry) - In his passion for symmetry, Dr. Marbles has created Symmetria, a harmonious cyberplace where everything is made symmetrical by a symmetrizer. Hacker steals the machine and reprograms it so that he can undo symmetry. The kids must master the properties of symmetry before Hacker destroys beauty, balance and harmony throughout all of cyberspace! The Big Idea: Symmetries are patterns you can find hidden within many objects that create balance, order, and a pleasing regularity in the world around us.

The Poddleville Case
(topic: Patterns) - The diabolical Hacker wreaks havoc when he steals the power pods of Poddleville, a cybercity filled with patterns. Our heroes must use math and logic to crack the double pattern that unlocks the Poddles' cyberpower vault before Hacker and his henchmen do! The Big Idea: Patterns are sequences that repeat or change in an orderly way. You can use patterns to predict the next step in solving a problem.

A Day at the Spa
(topic: Combinations) - Hacker finds the Krystal of Kalmoor, the powerful orb that will give him eternal power. By possessing the Krystal, Hacker can roam cyberspace and create havoc without having to recharge his power. When the kids and Digit arrive to retrieve the Krystal, they are stymied by a series of switches, levers and buttons. Faced with the challenge of too many choices, the kids discover the value of lists, tables and, yes, tree diagrams! The Big Idea: Overwhelmed with choices? Lists, tables and tree diagrams help you master the combinations.

Of All The Luck
(topic: Logic) - Convinced that his failure to defeat Motherboard is simply a result of bad luck, Hacker collects the Ten Lucky Charms of Cyberspace. The caper works. Hacker's luck changes, and good things begin happening to him. When Motherboard realizes what Hacker has done - she sends the kids and Digit to Hacker's hideout in the Northern Frontier to help the Lucky Charms escape. The kids use logic, Venn Diagrams and the understanding of the words "and", "or" and "not" to free the Charms. The Big Idea: When you have to choose from a confusing mix of possibilities, you can use logic - a set of tools for thinking clearly - to sort out your choices so you can get exactly what you want.

Snow Day to Be Exact
(topic: Estimation) - Hacker steals the powerful sunisphere from Solaria, causing the cyberworld's sunny vacation paradise to be covered in snow! In a fun-filled chase across the snowy terrain, the kids discover the power and speed of estimation in order to recover the glowing orb from Buzz and Delete before the temperature reaches zero and the site freezes over forever. The Big Idea: Sometimes using a close answer is good enough for the problem you are solving. ~

Sat, Dec 5, 2015 -- 12:30am

(topic: 2- & 3-D Geometry) - Pursued by Hacker, Digit lands on cybersite Eureeka, where his mission is to find Professor Archimedes - the maker of the encryptor chip, a unique computer chip that can fix Motherboard. But Archimedes is nowhere to be found - only a pile of two-dimensional rods where his chip factory should be. The kids arrive to help, and discover that by linking the two-dimensional rods together into certain geometrical patterns they actually create a surprising three-dimensional shape that leads directly to unraveling the mystery of Archimedes' strange disappearance. The Big Idea: When you follow simple rules to make flat geometrical shapes (two- dimensional), and join them together, you can discover new shapes that, instead of staying flat, rise up to make three-dimensional objects.

Cool It
(topic: Liquid Volume) - Determined to destroy Motherboard in any way possible, Hacker cleverly clogs up her cooling system. Digit brings the kids into cyberspace to help fix her, but the special coolant Motherboard needs, cryoxide, is found only in Castleblanca - and the supply is closely monitored! To bring back exactly enough cryoxide for Motherboard, the kids have to figure out the exact volume of Motherboard's tank. In the process, they discover the importance of a standard unit of measure - and fill a most unusual container with the precious cryoxide. The Big Idea: Just because one container appears bigger to the eye doesn't mean it holds more liquid than another. A container's volume depends on all its dimensions.

Find Those Gleamers!
(topic: Algebraic Variables) - The Hacker challenges Jackie, Matt and Inez to a contest on cyber-wide television! In order to prove to all of Cyberspace that Hacker's not as powerful or smart as he seems - the kids return to Topsy-Turvy Island on the Northern Frontier for the contest. Their mission is to power up a Mini-Wreaker using cyber-fireflies of varying power before the island turns inside out at sunset. The kids must use algebraic equations to determine how many Gleamers - and how much power - they'll need. The Big Idea: When you use a letter to stand in for a number that repeats or changes in a problem, you can simplify the arithmetic and make the problem easier to solve.

Codename: Icky
(topic: Codes) - In the watery depths of cybersite Aquari-yum, the kids and Hacker go in search of a giant cyber-slug, who feeds on pure energy. The kids and Digit travel underwater in two separate vessels, but Hacker has a listening device that taps into their communications system, allowing him to overhear their plans - and track every move they make. The kids outsmart Hacker by devising a series of codes so they can send messages back and forth in secret - even though Hacker can hear what they're saying. But unless the kids can reach the slug first, Hacker will use the slug to attack Motherboard's circuitry and disable her once and for all! The Big Idea: You can use a code (a communication system that substitutes one thing for another) to send top-secret messages as long as your code has an adjustable rule that can be reversed to read the message.

Return to Sensible Flats
(topic: Line Graphs) - Something is amiss with the bliss of Sensible Flats. The reservoir is dry. The town is out of water. And the folks who live there are leaving as fast as they can. But why? When the kids and Digit arrive, they use line graphs to reveal the true story of what happened - and all lines lead to Hacker, the newest resident of Sensible Flats. The Big Idea: You can use a line graph to tell a story about how things change, and make predictions.

Problem Solving In Shangri-La
(Topic: Problem Solving) - Hacker is holding the kids captive aboard the Grim Wreaker, when a storm forces the Wreaker to land on a snowy mountaintop. They are taken prisoner by a peaceful but mysterious Zen Master, who devises a game of strategy to test their problem solving skills. The winner of the game will be set free - the loser will remain a prisoner. In the battle of brainpower, the kids discover that each of them has a different way of solving problems - and that despite anger and frustration, they need to be tolerant of these differences. Hacker, of course, has his own way of solving problems. Working together, the kids find a way to defeat Hacker and gain their freedom. The Big Idea: Treat tough math problems like a challenging game. Set a game plan, and as you play, see how it goes. Take time to review and revise before playing again. Work on your problem as long as you can, but stop before anger and frustration overtake your desire to play.

Send in the Clones
(topic: Multiplication) - Hacker's plan to clone himself so he can wreak havoc throughout cyberspace in many places at once, goes haywire when his newly invented Clonitron clones Delete instead of himself. But Hacker takes advantage of the mishap by sending the Delete clones to takeover the R-Fair City cybersite. To complicate matters, every time Delete sneezes - his clones multiply even more. As the problem escalates, the kids do the math to keep track of the number of clones as they increase. Meanwhile, Cy Clone, a famous clone catcher sent to the site by Motherboard, vacuums up the clones - while Digit tries to get the Clonitron away from Hacker. The Big Idea: Multiplication is just repeated addition. If you're having trouble multiplying, you can always add to find your answer.

Trading Places
(topic: Money) - While attempting to rescue Dr. Marbles, the kids and Digit crash land on cybersite Nowhere, along with Hacker, Buzz and Delete. As a result of the crash, Hacker is shrunk, and Buzz and Delete become smart. In a race to rebuild their cybercraft and save Marbles, Digit and the kids learn to trade and barter and eventually create a monetary system. But who will finish first?!! The Big Idea: Instead of trading what you have for what you want, you can make it easy to buy and sell by creating a system where you exchange goods for tokens of different fixed values - money!

Less Than Zero
The Leaders of Cyberspace have gathered to discuss Hacker's increasing influence, when they are suddenly interrupted by Hacker. Buzz and Delete, Hacker's henchmen, hide the leaders including Dr. Marbles, in the building and its' up to the kids to rescue them. Before long, the kids discover that they can only move between the building's levels by scaling its outside walls! So the kids turn the building into a giant ruler in order to keep track of the floors. And when they discover that there are levels beneath what they thought was "zero," the kids must tap into the power of negative numbers. The Big Idea: Numbers don't have to stop at zero! Negative numbers -- numbers that are less than zero -- can extend the range of what you can measure on a scale and give you the ability to compare numbers using direction as well as amount. Math Topic: Negative Numbers NCTM Links: Number & Operations.

Model Behavior
To protect themselves from Hacker's constant attempts to capture cybersite Happily-Ever-After, the King and his fairy-tale subjects construct a glass Skywall to keep Hacker out of the kingdom. But Hacker unfolds a brilliant scheme to crack open the Skywall - using the Wicked Witch's Voice! Can the kids use models to outwit Hacker before Wicked sings?!! The Big Idea: Make a model - a simplified version of something complicated - and you can easily and safely understand how it works. Math Topic: Using Models NCTM Links: Geometry.

Fortress of Attitude
Hacker decides that he can force cybersites to surrender by annoying them big time. He broadcasts his loud and obnoxious voice across the vastness of cyberspace from a massive statue shaped like the arrogant Hacker himself. The kids and Digit are sent by Motherboard to the Northern Frontier, where they carry out a Mission Impossible style scheme to silence the statue and disable Hacker's intimidation. Using their skills at measuring length, the kids make their way up through the inside of the booby-trapped statue to Hacker's pointy chin and big mouth. But can they shut him up before Hacker shuts them down? The Big Idea: To measure length and communicate your results easily and precisely, identify a system of units based on a single standard length that everyone using it agrees on. Math Topic: Linear Measurement NCTM Links: Measurement.

Size Me Up
Hacker plans to launch a new virus at Motherboard - one that will crash her hard drive once and for all so he can take over cyberspace. To stop the kids and Digit from getting in his way, he tricks them into a cybersite from which escape seems impossible. In a confounding juxtaposition of scale and size, the kids first find themselves in a land of giants - then become giants themselves in a land of little people. The kids must cope with these disparities in scale and size, and use their brainpower to escape and warn Motherboard before Hacker can launch his virus. The Big Idea: You can create an exact likeness of something--though one that is a different size--by multiplying the size of every part of your original by the same number. Math Topic: Scale and Size; NCTM Links: Geometry, Algebra.

A Battle of Equals
Hacker pollutes cyberspace with dangerous cyberstatic by tampering with four satellites designed to keep everything free from cyber- static cling. But is his plan only to trash cyberspace - or does he have something even more devious up his cloak? The kids learn the answer as they use balance scales and equations to restore the satellites and save Motherboard. The Big Idea: You can use an equation - a statement that two different expressions are equal to each other - to find unknown values that make the equation true. Math Topic: Balancing Equations NCTM Links: Algebra, Representation, Connections.

Out of Sync
The balance and harmony of the Mount Olympus cybersite is controlled and protected by the Music of the Spheres. When Hacker disrupts this balance and throws the site into utter chaos, the kids and Digit have until sunset to make the sound of the music right! For the beat to go on, the kids must recreate the music and find the missing element in the musical pattern. The Big Idea: You can use mathematical patterns to create and understand memorable musical rhythms. Math Topic: Patterns in Music NCTM Links: Algebra, Connections.

Hugs and Witches
It's Valentine's Day, and Hacker captures Doctor Marbles and Lady Ada Lovelace (Jane Curtin), placing them inside a time machine invented by the mathematically-minded Lovelace. The kids and Digit must decipher a series of poems left behind by Lady L, and free them from the time machine before it time travels to the nether world of cyberspace - never to return! Will the kids get there in time, or will Valentine's Day bring nothing but broken hearts?

Totally Rad
The dastardly Hacker (Christopher Lloyd) takes over the Radopolis cybersite, declaring himself King in "Totally Rad," the season premiere of CYBERCHASE. In an effort to dethrone him, the kids challenge the Hacker's extreme team to a winner-take-all skate-off. There's just one catch: high-scoring tricks need as much area as possible and the field keeps mysteriously changing! With Digit ( Gilbert Gottfried) as coach, the kids put on a dazzling display of blading, boarding, and biking, but can they match their performance to the changing arena? The Big Idea: Different shapes bounded by the same perimeter can enclose very different areas. Math Topic: Perimeter/Area.

Harriet Hippo and the Mean Green
Hacker infects Motherboard with a new virus -- one that causes her to make cyber-citizens act mean. Digit and the kids go in search of an antidote: 2/5 of the Electro-Root, 2/8 of the Healing Stone, and 1/3 of a box of Hacker's wig gel -- a strange antidote indeed! Will the young cyber-heroes be able to gather the ingredients and figure out how to properly mix these odd fractions before it is too late? The Big Idea: Fractions that look different can represent the same portion of a whole. Math Topic: Equivalent Fractions.

True Colors
Hacker becomes a good guy! Can this possibly be true? A new, reformed Hacker runs for election against Motherboard, claiming to have done five good deeds, and promising to turn over a new leaf. Can the kids find a counter example that proves Hacker is lying -- or will he be elected the new ruler of cyberspace? Guest voice: Al Roker as "Sam Vander Rom." The Big Idea: When people use words like always, never, all, or none to claim something is true, be suspicious! Such claims are often false, and you need only a single counter example to disprove them. Math Topic: Counter Examples NCTM Link: Reasoning & Proof.

All The Right Angles
Motherboard mistakenly sends a treasure map to Hacker. The treasure is the secret to the legendary cyber-pirate Ivanka the Invincible's invincibility. If Hacker finds it, cyberspace is doomed! To help Motherboard, the kids must find the secret treasure before Hacker does, and use their skill with angles to read the strange map that contains only riddles about twists and turns. The Big Idea: To turn something so it points in just the right direction, use an angle to measure the size of the turn. Math Topic: Angle Measurement.

Mother's Day
Special Holiday Episode!" It's Mother's Day in cyberspace - and Hacker is determined to ruin it for everyone, especially Motherboard, by derailing the train that picks up the rare and colorful Madre Bonitas. This beautiful flower symbolizes Mother's Day, and it must be harvested on this one day only. It's a race against time, as the kids and Digit try to repair the breaks in the line and save Mother's Day. The Big Idea: Use a decimal point to join tenths with whole numbers and you have a decimal system you can use to easily record, compare and combine whole numbers with fractions. Math Topic: Decimals; NCTM Links: Number and Operations.

Double Trouble
With special guest star Geoffrey Holder. Out for revenge, Hacker invades Shangri-La and imprisons Master Pi. The kids and Digit arrive as Hacker searches for the Good Vibration - the source of peace and happiness on the cybersite. Trouble doubles with unexpected results for the kids as well as Hacker, Buzz and Delete. Will the good vibrations continue, or will Hacker turn Shangri La into Shangri Blah? The Big Idea: When something grows by doubling, it gets large surprisingly fast, growing ever faster the longer the doubling continues. Math Topic: Growth by Doubling; NCTM Links: Algebra *Science Connection: Comparing growth and patterns of change.

The Guilty Party
Hacker returns to Poddleville with a peace offering: a magnificent statue of the Mayor of Poddleville. But at the unveiling party, Hacker accuses someone of stealing the key to his recharger chair. The accused claims he's innocent. Like Sherlock Holmes and Watson, the kids and Digit investigate the crime by interviewing eyewitnesses and recreating the crime scene. But the more they investigate - the more the accused is placed at the scene of the crime. Everyone saw him. It appears that Hacker has found the culprit. But has he? And what's that strange noise coming from inside the statue? Math Topic: Point of View; NCTM Links: Geometry.

A Time to Cook
Hacker finds the part he needs to fix his Magnetic Magnotube - a machine that would disable Motherboard forever - in a most unlikely place. All he has to do to get it is win a cooking contest on the hit cyberspace TV show, The Fearless Chef. Hacker's plan? To kidnap his competition. But the Cybersquad is on to him. The girls go on a rescue mission to save the Fearless Chef, while Matt and Digit take on Hacker. Digit is already a celebrity chef, so this should be a piece of cake. They must race the clock and Hacker to cook three delicious dishes in three outrageous locations. Will Digit beat Hacker? Only time will tell. Math Topic: Elapsed Time; NCTM Links: Measurement.
