A Broom of One's Own

When Wicked puts a CyberSquad Seal of Approval on her new "Wickedy Brooms," it's up to Matt, Jackie, Inez and Digit to make sure the brooms are as good as Wicked claims. They try them out, figuring out their speed - how far the different brooms go in a given amount of time. The brooms pass the test - but Wicked doesn't. They must race to Control Central and save Motherboard before Wicked's scheme succeeds! And where's Hacker? And what will he do when he finds out Wicked is trying to take over his turf? EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVE: You can use speed - the distance you travel in a unit of time - to tell how far you will go in any amount of time.

Episode Duration: 28 minutes and 55 seconds

About Cyberchase:

Math rules in the animated adventure series CYBERCHASE.

CYBERCHASE energizes kids ages eight to eleven with math power.

Full of cyber-mysteries with eye-popping animation and a sly comic flair, the daily series features the voices of Christopher Lloyd and Gilbert Gottfried.

CYBERCHASE sends the message that math is fun - it's about problem solving and, boy, does it come in handy.

When the dastardly villain Hacker (Lloyd) launches a mad mission to conquer the virtual universe, Motherboard calls upon three earth kids for help.

They are Jackie, Matt and Inez - the culturally diverse heroes of CYBERCHASE - who, along with the wise-cracking cyber-bird Digit (Gottfried), travel from their real-world realm to the colorful virtual vistas of cyberspace, where they vanquish the bad guys in an all-out battle of wits.

Each episode takes the kids on a thrilling adventure driven by a different math concept - from tackling time in ancient Egyptian tombs to cracking codes in creepy caves or making sense of numbers in a fractured fairy tale world.
