Cyberchase is a great show on PBS.org for kids between the ages of 8 and 11.
The age range for this show was strategically chosen because studies show that this is the age where children often decide that they are not good at math or that math is not fun.
The goal of Cyberchase is to show kids that math can be fun and math is a necessary part of the world around them!
Hacker, a evil villain, is trying to take over Cyberspace unless three smart kids can stop him.
Using math and brain power, Inez, Jackie and Matt are on a mission to keep Hacker from taking over Cyberspace.
Cyberchase is a fun, comical, and adventurous show that centers around math concepts.
The math concepts introduced in the show meet National Standards, so you can let your kids enjoy this show and feel good, knowing they are learning a thing or two!

Cyberchase also has a website for teachers that has math activities and lesson plans. You can find that site here.
