A Fraction of a Chance (#510) Duration: 28:46 STEREO TVY (Secondary audio: DVI)

When Matt, Jackie and Inez get stuck in the vortex of a cyberportal, it's up to Digit to rescue them. He just needs to find the U.V.O. - the Universal Vortex Opener. But all the portals are jammed, so how's he supposed to travel anywhere? Assistance comes from a surprising source - Wicked! Digit and Wicked must work together to solve the puzzling clues that will reveal the location of the U.V.O. But they have to hurry - if the kids aren't rescued soon, they'll dematerialize! Can Digit and Wicked find the UVO in time? And is there even a fraction of truth to Wicked's claim she only wants to help out? EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVE: When you share parts of a whole, it takes two numbers to tell the story - the top and bottom numbers of a fraction.

Crystal Clear (#507) Duration: 28:46 STEREO TVY (Secondary audio: DVI)

When Digit's systems go wonky, Motherboard sends him to the caves that house the Synchronizer, the beautiful crystal that keeps all borgs correctly timed. But before he can be put back in sync, he gets a glitch and tosses his crystal synchrometer into a tunnel and then flies off the wrong way down into a deep, dark chasm. 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?

The kids arrive to help, but how do you figure out what's wrong with an animal that can't talk?

Castleblanca (#102) Duration: 28:55 STEREO TVY (Secondary audio: DVI)

(topic: Finding Meaning from Data) - Dr. Marbles is captured by Hacker and taken to Castleblanca, a cyberspace version of Transylvania. Hacker's goal: transfer Marbles' brainpower into his newly-built robot named Megabyte! Summoned by Motherboard, the kids and Digit arrive with the knowledge that Hacker has taken Marbles to a castle - but which one? There are hundreds and hundreds of castles. To find Marbles, the kids must master the art of properly collecting data, organizing it and graphing the results - which are sometimes surprising! The Big Idea: Data is a lot more than a collection of numbers. When you gather it, organize and analyze it, you can discover useful information hidden in the numbers.

R-Fair City (#103) Duration: 28:55 STEREO TVY (Secondary audio: DVI)

(topic: Probability and Chance) - Disguised as a gypsy, Hacker lures Digit to a fantastic cyber amusement park and holds him captive. When the kids arrive, they analyze the games of chance, figuring out which games are fair and which ones are not, and use what they learn to find Hacker and beat him at his own game before it's too late! The Big Idea: A game of chance is fair when nobody can tell who will win, but everyone has the same chance of being a winner.

The Big Idea: Sometimes using a close answer is good enough for the problem you are solving. ~

A Clean Sweep (#502) Duration: 28:55 STEREO TVY (Secondary audio: DVI)

Hacker makes Buzz's dream come true and gives him his very own donut shop in Radopolis. But it's just part of Hacker's latest scheme. Working out of the donut shop, Hacker makes confetti out of magnetite, and uses it to put all the Radsters to sleep, so he can take over the cybersite. The kids must engineer a huge "confetti cleaner" to save the Radsters, but encounter problem after problem with their invention. Has the CyberSquad finally found something they cannot do? EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVE: When you need something that doesn't exist, invent it! You can use what you know about problem solving to overcome hurdles along the way.

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?
