Does your 4th through 12th grader need a little extra help with their math homework?  “Do the Math” has the answers for them!  “Do the Math,” a standards-based math instruction program, produced by the Kern County Superintendent of Schools, airs every Tuesday and Wednesday during the school year from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Bright House Networks Ch. 15.  

Students can also have their questions answered by certified math teachers with free phone-in tutoring every Tuesday and Wednesdays from 3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. The show’s host then takes a few questions and works out the problems on air during the live show at 4 p.m.  The call-in numbers are (661) 636-4357 and toll free (866) 636-6284. Hearing impaired students, who have video phones, can call (661) 369-8958 between 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.

Now in its 11th season, Michael Cushine, a math instructor, has hosted this innovative math program for five years.  He draws on his years as a former radio personality, using his professional voice, sense of humor, timing and broadcasting savvy to keep the show entertaining and on pace.  During the day, you can find him teaching at Stockdale Elementary.

“Tutors stay with the student for however long it takes to solve the problem. They make sure they have the building blocks to figure out the problem and will take them back to basics if that is needed,” says KETN Coordinator John Lenko, who has been directing the “Do the Math” program since it first went on the air.  “They are the caller’s personal tutor, one-on-one until the problem is solved.”

In addition to watching “Do the Math” on cable, students can view the program live at www.ketn.tv.
