Plot Edit

Professor Quigley shows the Frog Kids - Leap, Lily, and Tad - inside the Math Factory. He introduces them to the numbers 0 to 10 and quidgets. Tad and Quigley sing a song about the Quidget Worm growing from 1 to 10 quidgets.

Quigley takes the Frog Kids outside to see the Math Circus! As they enter the big top, numbers and quidgets are practicing for the show and Quigley dresses as a rimgmaster. The show starts when Quidget welcome the audience to the Math Circus. This is the first act: the numbers 0 to 10 (the stars of the show) and counting 10 quidgets as they stack one by one. Ringmaster Quigley reminds the audience a break. When he says take five, Tad carries a number 5, but Quigley means five minutes to get a treat the the circus ice cream stand. Tad give the 5 a high five.

The Frog Kids are shocked when they see Mr. Websley working at the ice cream stand, but Websley renames himself "Scoopsley", and gives them each an ice cream cone. Lily: "Needs salt."

When five minutes are up, the next act is a quidget addition trapeze act, then a disappointing but fun quidget subtraction trapeze act, and then a quidget "sub-add-tract-ism" trapeze act. The audience, Tad, Leap and Lily are shocked to hear that one miscalculation could be disastrous. Professor Quigley calms the crowds down by saying that subtraction is just like addition but backwards. After that comes the next act: a 10-by-10 quidget cannonball act where quidgets are shot out of cannons 10 by 10 up to 100 quidgets. Then when Quidgey fires a very special cannon, Mr. Websley flies out and thinks the circus is quack-tacular! Then Tad and Websley sing a song. After the song, Tad gives Websley 1-2-3-4-5, and Websley gives Tad 6-7-8-9-10 (high five)! They laugh as the video ends.

The scene then fades out and the credits roll.
