In this video segment from Cyberchase, Matt and Inez have to choose a cage for Spout the Whale. The cages they find in a store come in different sizes and Matt and Inez are not sure of Spout?s exact size. They use estimation and non-standard measurements to estimate Spout's size and select the best cage. Teaching tips are also provided that discuss frame, focus and follow-up suggestions for using this video in a math lesson.

Lesson plan using a Cyberchase activity where students learn about body matches, measuring one part of the body using another body part. They learn about non-standard measures and relative measurement. This activity is motivated by a Cyberchase episode in which the CyberSquad must act as crime scene experts to find out who kidnapped Chewcrocca, a giant cybercrocodile.

Students use simple materials to design an open spectrograph so they can calculate the angle light is bent when it passes through a holographic diffraction grating. A holographic diffraction grating acts like a prism, showing the visual components of light. After finding the desired angles, students use what they have learned to design their own spectrograph enclosure.

In this video segment from Cyberchase, Bianca is getting ready to run in a race on a 200 meter track. She notices that the starting positions in the six lanes are at different points along the track. She believes this is unfair and sets out to measure the distance between the starting point and the finish line in both the outside and the inside lanes. Teaching tips are also provided that discuss frame, focus and follow-up suggestions for using this video in a math lesson.

Lesson plan where students are asked to consider how to draw a perfect circle, and learn to do so using a line segment called a radius. They also learn to fold a circle in two directions symmetrically to find its center. This activity is motivated by a CYBERCHASE episode in which the CyberSquad set out to rescue a magic ring from Hacker and deposit it in a safe place.
