Math Patrol was a children's educational television show produced by TVOntario in 1977 and aired by the public broadcaster in the late 1970s and the early 1980s. The series starred John Kozak as "Sydney" – a "math detective" who repeatedly went undercover as a kangaroo. Other cast members included Carl Banas, Jessica Booker, Luba Goy and Nikki Tilroe. The program was designed to teach basic math skills and terminology in an entertaining fashion to children between approximately 8 and 10 years of age. In each 15-minute episode, Math Patrol's unseen boss "Mr. Big" would send the detective on a case or charge him with a task which could only be solved through mathematic deduction. Over the course of 20 episodes, Math Patrol provided introductory math lessons on topics including addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, area, fractions, length, shapes, geometry and symmetry. Because of its highly educational nature, Math Patrol was often shown to groups of primary school students during class time.
Math Country is an instructional television program produced by Kentucky Educational Television, in the late 1970s. The show taught elementary math concepts and featured actor Ray Walston as a ghost named Lionel Hardway who inhabits the family farm, now lived in and ran by his descendants, helping them with various math problems, and sometimes getting involved in side stories involving the living members of the Hardway family. Episodes were roughly 15 minutes in length and were broadcast on educational and public television channels during the school year. Each broadcast was usually followed by a short called "Math Country Plus", which usually dealt with how a girl in school figured out how to solve problems on her own, using her own creativity and intellect, played by two actors who interacted with the girl on a fantasy set to represent the inside of the girl's head.

Maths-In-A-Box was a BBC Schools educational TV programme, combining elements of Mathematics and problem solving. The plot involved a girl Tracey Dixon and her friend and neighbour Paul who meet alien visitor Powka from the planet Scooter. He travels in a ship that resembles a small cube, mistaken for board game dice. By reciting the magic words ‘Tiki tiki tox, out of the box’, Powka is able to leave his ship and grow to the size of a normal man. Paul and Tracey are able to shrink down and accompany Powka back into the box by reciting the magic words. Paul and Tracy spend the series teaching Powka basic number techniques, geometry and measurements. The series cast the children as teachers and Powka, the adult figure, as the pupil. The mathematical concepts are all based on real-life examples and there are fun subplots involving Powka being visible only to children not adults.
