Be Reasonable (Episode #308)

KQED Kids: Sun, Mar 31, 2013 -- 9:30 PM

Hacker returns to the Cybrary to wreak revenge on Ms. Fileshare and the kids. His crafty plan tricks the kids to try to rescue Ms. Fileshare, only to find themselves all trapped! If the CyberSquad doesn't escape in time, Hacker will steal the Cybrary's most valuable books - all about the most secret inner-workings of Motherboard!

Find Those Gleamers! (Episode #115)

KQED Kids: Sat, Mar 30, 2013 -- 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.

Raising The Bar (Episode #210)

KQED Kids: Fri, Mar 29, 2013 -- 9:30 PM

The main Cybrary is under attack. Hacker, disguised as an exterminator called the Vermin Vexer, has released a mysterious cyberbug that is systematically destroying certain information - but Ms. Fileshare, the overworked Cybrarian, is too busy to notice. When Hacker uses bar graphs to confuse Ms. Fileshare, the kids create bar graphs of their own to counter his contentions. Which graph will Ms. Fileshare believe? And what information is Hacker trying to destroy? Math Topic: Bar Graphs; NCTM Links: Representation. *With special guest star Jasmine Guy*

Hacker's first task is to get star student Shari Spotter out of his way. He entraps Shari in Merlin's Maze by blocking her path with a series of heavy stone slabs. The CyberSquad learns of Shari's plight, but the slabs that block her escape are too heavy to move unaided. In their rescue mission, the kids experiment with levers and discover a proportional rule: Multiply the length of your lever and you will similarly multiply the weight you can lift.

Escape from Merlin's Maze (Episode #604)

KQED Kids: Fri, Mar 1, 2013 -- 3:30 AM

On the prowl for a new power source, Hacker descends on Frogsnorts School of Sorcery. His scheme? To steal Professor Stumblesnore's wand and harness its awesome magic to energize himself. Hacker's first task is to get star student Shari Spotter out of his way. He entraps Shari in Merlin's Maze by blocking her path with a series of heavy stone slabs. The CyberSquad learns of Shari's plight, but the slabs that block her escape are too heavy to move unaided. In their rescue mission, the kids experiment with levers and discover a proportional rule: Multiply the length of your lever and you will similarly multiply the weight you can lift. They free Shari, but not in time: Hacker has been successful and stolen Stumblesnore's magic! Is Shari's magic powerful enough to defeat him?
