Clock like an Egyptian
USA/Canada, 2002  TV  

TV-series Cyberchase

Directed by Larry Jacobs

  

Dr. Marbles finds the encryptor chip (the computer chip that will enable Marbles to delete Motherboard's virus) in an ancient pyramid. But the Mummy who guards the pyramid finds Marbles. When the kids and Digit arrive, they must work their way through the chambers of the pyramid – find Dr. Marbles – and escape before a trap set by the Mummy seals them inside forever. How much time do they have? Unfortunately, they have no clock or watch to tell them how much time has gone by. How can they be helped?

Episode 9 of the Emmy Award-winning series Cyberchase, which teaches kids aged 8-12 math concepts in a fun way they can understand. Every episode concludes with a "For Real" live action segment in which a young comic actor encounters a situation which reinforces the math concept explored in the animated story line. The episode "Clock like an Egyptian" centers around the topic of timekeeping: measure the passage of time by chosing a starting point and count up the beats of something that repeats at steady, regular intervals.
