Cool It (Episode #114)

PBS Kids: Sun, Jul 23, 2017 -- 7:00 AM

(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.

Designing Mr. Perfect (Episode #503)

PBS Kids: Sun, Jul 23, 2017 -- 6:30 AM

Frustrated that she can't find Mr. Perfect, The Wicked Witch sets out to design him, by turning a frog into her Prince Charming. Unknowingly, however, Wicked captures and transforms Digit instead of a frog. Her sympathetic wand, Wanda (Danica McKellar), secretly alerts the CyberSquad who jump into action. Their problems multiply when a jealous Hacker kidnaps their cyboid pal. The kids must design an invention that can do two things: navigate a perilous swamp AND get to the top of a tall cliff. Can they pull off the rescue before it's too late? EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVE: Make a design - a plan for your invention - before you start building so you can make sure that it will function the way that you want it to.

Eureeka! (Episode #113)

PBS Kids: Sat, Jul 22, 2017 -- 7:00 AM

(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.

Of All The Luck (Episode #112)

PBS Kids: Fri, Jul 21, 2017 -- 7:00 AM

(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.

Find Those Gleamers! (Episode #115)

PBS Kids: Fri, Jul 21, 2017 -- 6:30 AM

(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.

A Day at the Spa (Episode #111)

PBS Kids: Thu, Jul 20, 2017 -- 7:00 AM

(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.

The kids and Digit set out to retrieve the Eye from Hacker, but the journey is packed with a maze of exciting, action-filled gambits that force them to first do and undo a series of complicated steps. The Big Idea: Find the inverse of an action and you can undo it, putting things back the way they were. Math Topic: Inverse Operations; NCTM Link: Number & Operations.
