The Flying Parallinis (Episode #506)

KQED Kids: Mon, Jun 30, 2014 -- 9:30 PM

When Hacker strands Jackie atop Mount Wayupthere, the rest of the CyberSquad has to act fast to save her. In their search for the elusive Diamond Joe - the mysterious figure who holds the secret to Jackie's release - the CyberSquad meets spunky TW, a young Parallini who agrees to help them. Can they discover the power of parallelograms in time to launch a daring rescue mission?

Totally Rad (Episode #202)

KQED Kids: Mon, Jun 30, 2014 -- 11:00 AM

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.

The Creech Who Would Be Crowned (Episode #305)

KQED Kids: Sun, Jun 29, 2014 -- 9:30 PM

The CyberSquad is summoned to Tikiville to stop Hacker from winning a race that would allow him to take over the cybersite. Upon arrival, Matt and Jackie tease Inez about her big vocabulary, so she decides to say just one small word -- "Bye!" She splits from the group and teams up with a Tikiville girl named Creech. Creech considers it her destiny to rule the land her family once ruled for so many years. Hacker, of course, is out to win any way he can. The kids have to overcome their differences as well as use their knowledge of direction and distance to help Creech take a shortcut to the finish line...but will they cross it before Hacker?

It's the CyberSquad's most ingenious plan ever - and most dangerous! If they can insert a new memory chip into Hacker's H-Drive, they can turn him from evil to good. Once he's been shrunk and is inside Hacker, Matt's mission goes like clockwork until a force field is activated and envelops the H-Drive. All seems lost until Digit remembers a robot that Dr Marbles made that can break through any force field. They can shrink it down and send it in to help Matt... but must first figure out how to make it follow their commands. Can Inez, Jackie and Digit program the robot in time?

Called in to help, Jackie, Matt and Inez meet Jules, the cave's timid guard, who teams up with them to find the synchrometer (using the unique geometry of crystals) and to find Digit, who's hopelessly lost. To thwart their plans, Hacker steals the Synchronizer. Can the kids figure out how to replace it and save their friend?

Problem Solving In Shangri-La (Episode #118)

KQED Kids: Sun, Jun 1, 2014 -- 9:30 PM

(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.

All The Right Angles (Episode #205)

KQED Kids: Sun, Jun 1, 2014 -- 5:30 PM

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.

Eureeka! (Episode #113)

KQED Kids: Sun, Jun 1, 2014 -- 11:00 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.
