Viewing Tips


Watch Cyberchase with your child and, as you watch, talk about what the characters are doing, what problem they are faced with, and how your child thinks they should solve it. If co-viewing online, invite your child to pause or replay the episode or clip to talk about the story, characters, math or problem solving.

Invite your child to make predictions. Ask: “What do you think will happen next?” and “Why do you think that?”

Make Connections

Help your child look for ways to make connections between everyday activities and the math ideas and experiences they’ve explored through Cyberchase. The live-action For Real segments may give you ideas. Connecting the concepts to your child’s life makes what she has learned more meaningful.

Once your child has selected a video, game or activity on the Cyberchase website, encourage her to extend the experience. Point out the “MORE COOL STUFF” feature which offers additional multi-media materials related to the current selection.

Encourage Confidence and Positive Thinking

The characters in Cyberchase use problem-solving skills and math when difficulties arise and often try more than one approach in order to solve a problem. When your child experiences difficulty with math, encourage her to imagine what her favorite character on Cyberchase might do. Identifying with positive role models helps build confidence and challenges social stereotypes about performance in math.
