Summary:Age Range: 7-11 (Grades 2-7 approximately, with parental supervision). This PBS website is a companion to Cyberchase, the Emmy Award® winning mathematics series for children. The website offers dynamic web games, videos, and printable activities that teach math concepts in a fun way that kids can understand.
Description:In case you’re unfamiliar with the PBS show, the website explains: “In the world of Cyberchase, the dastardly villain Hacker is on a mad mission to overthrow Motherboard and take over Cyberspace with the help of his blundering henchbots, Buzz and Delete. But Motherboard enlists the help of three curious kids, Inez, Jackie, and Matt, and their cyberpal, Digit, to stop him. Their weapon: brain power. In the live-action segment following each animated episode, Harry and Bianca show kids how math can help solve life’s wacky problems in the real world.”

To further help kids explore their world, the hands-on activities include a range of science, technology, engineering and math topics. When you get to the website, you’ll see an icon menu of printable activities that include:
  • Batter Up – Track your favorite baseball team’s hits and look for patterns.

  • Bianca’s Body Math – Use math to learn which body parts are proportional.

  • Make a Pinwheel – Make a pinwheel and use it to find out how windy it is.
