After a successful pilot run last year, Knowledge Channel’s popular educational show MathDali is now on ABS-CBN!
MathDali revolves around the story of Kuya Robi (played by Robi Domingo), a Math enthusiast, who helps Igi Boy Flores, Vic Robinson III, and twins Joj and Jai Agpangan in their fun adventures overcoming their fear of Math and mastering the subject along the way.
The show, which aims to redefine the way Math is taught in schools, was inspired by the works and research of renowned American educators like Jo Boaler (Math Mindset), Cathy Humphreys, Ruth Parker (Making Number Talks Matter), and Carol Dweck (Growth Mindset). Each episode illustrates a Math concept through real-life situations that aims to positively change how to learn Math, develop conceptual understanding, critical thinking, and problem solving, allowing the students to learn in new ways, and make the learning experience both interesting and exciting.

Robi, Igi Boy, Vic, Joj and Jai together with the whole production team headed by Mariles Gonzales, the same mind who brought you Mathtinik, Sines’kwela, Epol-Apple, Hirayamanawari, Bayani among many others guarantee a fun and interactive way of teaching and learning Math as the show promotes strategies to foster a growth mindset. Discovered by Stanford University psychologist Carol Dweck, growth mindset posits that skills and abilities can be developed through dedication and hard work. You don’t have to be born with a talent. This change and advancement can come through experience and application.
“Huwag tayong matakot sa Math. Kasi sobrang essential nito sa buhay natin. Dito tayo pwedeng matuto ng mga certain values na maia-apply natin sa buhay natin. Hindi lang ‘to about numbers and how to solve problems. Tinuturuan kang mas maging determined, mas maging patient, at mas madiskarte,” said Vic Robinson, one of MathDali’s co-hosts.
Mathdali now airs on ABS-CBN every Saturday at 8 AM right before G Diaries.
