Math Fluxx is all about the numbers. Players use positive integers (whole numbers) in their quest to achieve a very mathematical goal — but it's not just putting 4 and 2 together to achieve the 42 goal (for example) as Math Fluxx also features the Plan B Meta Rule.

In this video segment from *Cyberchase*, the CyberSquad needs help from the Three Fates. In order to keep these three ladies happy they need to figure out how to divide a wreath into three equal pieces, one piece for each of the Fates. The CyberSquad realizes they can use thread and scissors to help them divide up the wreath evenly.

In this Cyberchase video clip, Harry is auditioning for a talent show with a subpar magic act. One audience member continuously heckles him until Harry pulls him up on stage. Using ratios, proportions, and a piece of string, Harry demonstrates that you can use the size of certain body parts to predict the lengths of others. For example, he shows the audience if you measure three times around someone's head, it is usually equivalent to their height and arm span.

Solve a two-step word problem by drawing a picture and creating an equation.

Find the least common multiple to get the common denominator of a series of fractions that have unlike denominators.

Let's work this example together. It will make clear the whole idea of regrouping whole numbers.

Learn to use formulas and unit cubes to model the formula for volume of 3D figures composed of quadrilaterals in this video from KCPT.

This video will help you think about what it means to multiply two fractions. By drawing the problem and "seeing" the answer, you'll understand it's done.

Observe a pattern that develops when we compare the number of zeros in tens with the number of zeros in the answer.
