Although Uncle Norm has the coolest shoes, his shoelaces are totally boring. Alanna’s skateboarding pal and his friends save the day. They teach Uncle Norm all the cool ways to tie shoelaces – Bow Tie lacing, the Half and Half pattern, and even the Checkerboard pattern, allusing the ‘over, under, in and out’ rule.

The Gist: This episode is about patterning, such as over/under, left/right, in/out, red/black, and following instructions. It demonstrates how different people, not just mathematicians, use mathematics daily for practical and creative purposes.
