series description

"Peg + Cat" follows Peg and her sidekick Cat on her adventures as they learn foundational math concepts and skills. PBS Kids is committed to using media to enhance kids' educational opportunities. National math assessments show that 60 percent of students are performing below proficient levels in math by the 4th grade. The addition of "Peg + Cat" to the PBS Kids preschool lineup will encourage kids to use math concepts as they explore their world. Each episode features fascinating stories in which "Peg and Cat" encounter a problem that requires them to use math and problem solving skills in order to move forward. Their adventures take them through worlds of infinite possibilities — from farms to purple planets, from 16th-century Verona to New York's Radio City Music Hall, from a land of pirates to a prehistoric valley — demonstrating that math is everywhere. The show will also address core skills including cooperation, perseverance and resiliency.
