Find Those Gleamers! (Episode #115)

KQED Kids: Thu, Jul 24, 2014 -- 9:30 PM

(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.

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.

She's partnered with Nug Grommet, the handsome cyber-surfing champion in a dance contest. Turning even greener with jealousy, Hacker enters the contest to prove his superiority. Only there's one small problem-who can he coerce into being his partner? Enter the CyberSquad. Observing Jackie's prowess on the dance floor, Hacker has Buzz and Delete detain Inez, then forces Jackie to teach him the moves and dance with him in exchange for Inez's safe return. As the contest unfolds, it becomes apparent that the judges lack a workable scoring system to decide the winner. Determined to help Inez, Matt joins the judges to find a way to score the contest.

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!
