In this video segment from Cyberchase (the second part in a two-segment series), the CyberSquad is trying to get to Motherboard by using a Teleporter. The CyberSquad uses their matrix to figure out how to put the Teleporter back together correctly. Watch "Fixing the Teleporter – Part 1" to see how the CyberSquad used clues to create their matrix.
Here are some Frame, Focus and Follow-up suggestions for using this video in a math lesson.
What is Frame, Focus and Follow-up?
Frame: Suppose someone is thinking of a triple-digit number and asks you to guess what it is. If you can only ask “yes or no” questions, what kinds of questions might you ask? How would you record the information?
Focus: Watch to see how the CyberSquad uses their matrix to correctly reassemble the broken Teleporter.
Follow Up: What do the "X" marks on the matrix indicate? What do the checkmarks indicate? Does the CyberSquad have enough information by the end of the segment to assemble the Teleporter correctly? Digit says, "No guessing, no hunches, we know for sure." How does he know that?
JACKIE: Right! The projector goes on the yellow part of the stand. And since the projector can only go on one color, I can cross off blue and red for the projector.
MATT: And because yellow is already taken - we can cross it off for the lamp and the chair!
INEZ: We just knocked out two more possibilities!
JACKIE: And guys, ya know what? We just revealed which piece goes with which color! Check it out! Lamp on blue, chair on red and projector on yellow!
DIGIT: No guessing! No hunches! We know for sure!
JACKIE/MATT/INEZ: We did it!
MS. FILESHARE: Splendid! Now let's hope we can stop Hacker before he stops Motherboard!
Academic standards correlations on Teachers' Domain use the Achievement Standards Network (ASN) database of state and national standards, provided to NSDL projects courtesy of JES & Co.
We assign reference terms to each statement within a standards document and to each media resource, and correlations are based upon matches of these terms for a given grade band. If a particular standards document of interest to you is not displayed yet, it most likely has not yet been processed by ASN or by Teachers' Domain. We will be adding social studies and arts correlations over the coming year, and also will be increasing the specificity of alignment.
