Colourful animated numbers, zero to nine, jump in a line then form the title “Wacky Number Songs”.

An upbeat song plays: IT'S THE WACKY WACKY
NUMBER SONGS.
OH YEAH.

A caption reads “With Ava”. Ava does homework at a desk in a brightly lit bedroom. She rests her hand on her chin as she writes with a pencil. Ava flips a page in a textbook, then turns the page back.

(SIGHS)

Ava works on math problems in her notebook. She scratches out an answer.

(GRUNTS)

Ava lifts the pencil in front of her face and swings it from side to side.

Ava says: YOU WILL UNDERSTAND THIS MATH.
YOU WILL UNDERSTAND THIS MATH.

Ava drops the pencil into her other hand. She frowns.

Ava says: DIDN'T WORK.
BUT IT TURNS OUT THAT STRUGGLING
WITH A PROBLEM IS PART OF HOW

A brain bounces around a red wall. White lights float down.

Ava sings: STRUGGLE, TRY TO THINK IT
THROUGH.
MAYBE TAKE DEEP BREATH TOO.
ONE MISTAKE JUST DOESN'T MEAN
THAT THIS IS TOO HARD FOR YOU.
SO IF YOUR BRAIN IS UNDER
HAS THE MOST TO GAIN.

Ava wears workout clothes and a headband. She opens a large book. Roman numerals glow green and yellow behind her.

Ava sings: TAKE A LOOK AT THE INSTRUCTIONS
TOO.
SOMETIMES THE KEY TO
THE DIRECTIONS.

Ava says: OH, NOW I SEE WHAT IT WAS ASKING
ME TO DO!

Ava dances on a rocky hillside.

Ava sings: STRUGGLE HELPS YOUR BRAIN.
SO IF YOUR BRAIN IS UNDER
HAS THE MOST TO GAIN.

STRUGGLE, TRY TO THINK IT
THROUGH.
BUT IF YOU STILL CAN'T DO
MENTAL KUNG FU, YOU CAN STILL
DON'T BE AFRAID TO YELP A
YELP.
JUST CAUSE YOU DIDN'T GET EVERY
PART.
THAT DOESN'T MEAN THAT YOU'RE
NOT SMART.

Ava pushes a boulder up a hill.

Ava sings: STRUGGLE HELPS YOUR BRAIN.
SO IF YOUR BRAIN IS UNDER
HAS THE MOST TO GAIN
THAT'S WHEN YOUR BRAIN HAS THE
MOST TO GAIN.
STRUGGLE!

The song ends.

Ava balances the textbook on her head.

Ava says: I USED TO PANIC WHEN I DIDN'T
UNDERSTAND SOMETHING.
BUT IT TURNS OUT THAT STRUGGLING
TO FIGURE OUT IS ACTUALLY HOW
OUR BRAINS GET STRONGER.

Ava grabs the book with both hands and puts it on the desk.

Ava says: AFTER A WHILE, THINGS THAT
CONFUSE US START TO MAKE SENSE,
SO WE CAN MOVE ON TO LEARNING
THE NEXT THING.

Ava opens the textbook.

Ava says: AND NOW IT'S TIME FOR ME TO MOVE
ON.

Ava flips a page in the textbook.

Ava says: SEE YOU NEXT TIME!
