A practical maths series presented by Martin Roberts, who works at the "Local Daily News". The newspaper is too boring so Martin has been charged with reinvigorating it by introducing a maths-based pull-out supplement. Needless to lớn say this is a tremendous success.

The main part of each episode was a drama about a group of children at an adventure playground in the same area where the Local Daily News is published. Karen moves in to the area is introduced lớn Jess, Omar, whose parents own a magdalenarybarikova.comrner shop, & Darren, who uses a wheelchair và organises all of the others.
