Overview:

The CyberSquad works with an area to figure out how to power a skate park using solar panels in this interactive from WNET. In the accompanying classroom activity, students view and analyze a series of video clips from Cyberchase and complete an activity using area and ratio. Students take what they’ve learned and put it to the test by designing their own solar power dream house. This resource is part of the Math at the Core: Middle School Collection.
