Theme: Instead of counting a million of something, we can imagine a million through skills of estimation and mathematical reasoning.

With the market closed, a cook travels around the world to gather ingredients for making an apple pie.

LeVar joins chef Curtis Aikens in his kitchen, which is also his laboratory where he creates new recipes, to get some cooking tips from the chef. Curtis tells LeVar that when he was younger he hid the fact he was not able to read. Finally at the age of 26, he asked for help. Viewers also find out how chemistry is used every day at the Turkey Hill ice cream factory.

A CD-ROM and Family Literacy Kit are also available for this episode.
