Math Monsters™ is a brand new, beautifully animated public television series that is designed to help students, grades K through 2nd, learn mathematics at home and in the classroom. The series was produced in cooperation with The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics to meet and support their newly released national standards for K-2 math instruction. Math Monsters is an entertaining gateway to in-depth mathematical thinking and reasoning involving meaningful real world problems.

In Episode #1, Data Collection: the Monsters are enjoying a breakfast of pancakes and decide to open a pancake restaurant. They all make suggestions about what kind of pancakes to serve, but realize there are too many possibilities. They decide to conduct a survey to collect the data they need to make an informed menu selection. The Monsters go out into the neighborhood and ask what pancakes the local Monsters like best. They all take down the information but each one represents the data differently – one draws a picture for each pancake somebody names, one writes down the names of each pancake selected and one uses tally marks. Next, the Monsters must figure out how to combine their various representations of data to determine which pancakes are the favorites of the most monsters. Our field trip takes us to the zoo where we see how data is collected from the various animal houses and used to order the weekly food supply for the animals.
