A fun-filled, CANADIAN-produced educational series with scenarios showing how math is used for everything from clubhouse renovations to cooking, The Prime Radicals makes numbers cool for kids. Based on Dr. Lynda Colgan’s (Professor of Elementary Mathematics Education, Queen’s University) Kingston Whig-Standard newspaper columns, it is clearly meets the need for a fresh and innovative approach to math education.

Each 14-minute episode takes viewers to Uncle Norm’s workshop, usually the scene of his latest misadventure. The Radicals—cousins Kevin and Alanna—come to the rescue every time. They enlist experts, such as a kite boarder, rancher or maple syrup expert, to help them solve Uncle Norm’s problems with mathematical solutions.

The Prime Radicals shows children that mathematics is around us all the time—from cooking to magic tricks, and from making change to meteorology. The series dispels math myths by using real-world examples and by focusing on positive outcomes.

26 Episodes, 15 minutes each.
