The Impact of CYBERCHASE on Children’s Mathematical Problem Solving

July 1st, 2003 | EVALUATION

Produced by Thirteen/WNET New York and Nelvana International, the Award-winning series CYBERCHASE is the only mathematics series for children on American television. Designed for kids ages 8 to 12 and packed with mystery, humor, and action, each episode delivers positive messages about math by teaching concepts in a fun way that kids can understand. To assess the impact of Cyberchase on children's mathematical problem solving, MediaKidz Research & Consulting conducted summative research using an experimental/control, pretest/posttest design. Participants were 108 third- and fourth-grade children (53 girls and 55 boys) at an ethnically diverse school in Pelham, NY.
