In this video segment from Cyberchase, Wicked and Digit are following clues left by Motherboard to help them free the CyberSquad. To get the next clue from Grubby, they must use a fraction to describe their share of a box of worms. In doing so, they ...learn to identify the denominator as the number of parts that make up a whole and the numerator as their share of the parts. (2:20)[more]

In this video segment from Cyberchase, the CyberSquad looks at seven different crystals to determine which crystal displays the largest amount of orange color, and thus has the most power. They find that some crystals have more stripes of certain col...ors than others but not all the stripes are the same size. The CyberSquad solves the problem by thinking about the stripes as fractional parts of the crystals, and then comparing the fractions to determine the largest one. (1:45)[more]
