Plot

Convinced that his failure to defeat Motherboard is simply a result of bad luck, Hacker collects the Ten Lucky Charms of Cyberspace. The caper works. Hacker’s luck changes, and good things begin happening to him. When Motherboard realizes what Hacker has done, she sends the kids and Digit to Hacker’s hideout in the Northern Frontier to help the Lucky Charms escape. The kids use logic, Venn Diagrams and an understanding of the words “and,” “or,” and “not” to free the Charms.

Extras

  • Math Topic: "Of All The Luck" uses Venn diagrams to discuss the logical operators "and", "or", and "not". It draws attention to the distinction between "and" and "or" to make choices from a group of members with different properties. Similar skills are used in Logic Zoo.
  • For Real segment: "A Pizza to Go with Gross Anchovies" - Bianca is ordering a pizza for her friends, Darcy and Lupe. Both Darcy and Lupe want anchovies, but Bianca can't bear to be near them, let alone eat them! How can they order a pie with the toppings arranged so the anchovies are nowhere near her pieces? She uses a Venn Diagram similar to the one Matt, Jackie, and Inez used in the show to figure it out.
