Odd Squad: Learning math with PBS KIDS transmedia content at school and home: A report to the CPB-PBS Ready To Learn Initiative

In spring 2015, WestEd conducted a study for the CPB-PBS Ready To Learn Initiative of a school- and home-based transmedia mathematics intervention based on the resources in the PBS KIDS Odd Squad transmedia suite. The transmedia mathematics intervention, called Odd Squad Math, or OSM, for purposes of the study, included a wide variety of Odd Squad transmedia assets, including episodes from the television series, educational online games, interstitials (i.e., short video clips), and hands-on activities. The intervention was used in the first-grade classroom and in participants' homes. The current study explores the effectiveness of using Odd Squad Math to improve elementary-age students' mathematics learning, specifically in the domains of Algebraic Thinking and Numbers and Operations.
