 Is Your Kid Poor In Maths? Here Comes The Fun Way To Learn It Easily
A government campaign launched at the World Professional Darts Championships, Britons are being encouraged to improve their maths skills by playing darts.

The Get On campaign, in partnership with the British Darts Organisation, is sending TV presenter Johnny Ball to join the minister for further education Sion Simon to talk to spectators at the event, reports the Telegraph.

The campaign is targeting the biggest darts competition in the world, in an attempt to improve people's chances of finding employment.

Ball said: "So often people don't realise how much maths is part of their day to day life but as research shows, by brushing up on your maths skills you are far more likely to hit the magic 180."

English darts player Bobby George believes the game is also an ideal way to help children understand maths.

He said: "I've been going into schools for 20 years. And they love it. They pick it up so fast. On a blackboard they don't pick it up so quick.

"The game of darts is 33 per cent maths, if cannot count you cannot win."
