  • Cyberchase: Building a Better Raft

    The CyberSquad tests if its contraption serves as a raft. While it floats, it contains holes, and Digit gets attacked by piranhas through the holes. The group determines it needs to build a raft with no holes and no overlap. Together, they combine square pieces that they find on the floor to make a big raft. Inez explains that they've created a tessellation, and she defines the meaning of the word.

  • Cyberchase: Traversing the Lava

    The CyberSquad needs to get across a pool of lava. They find tiles in the shapes of triangles, pentagons, and hexagons, and tessellate the tiles in order to create a bridge that will shield them from the heat. When they run out of triangles in the middle of creating the bridge, they attempt to use pentagons, but that shape leaves gaps, so they use hexagons to complete the bridge.
