Maths Trumps Darts is perfect for teachers and for parents wishing to make learning a fun activity rather than a rote activity. Beautifully designed and written, they can be used over around 8 years old.
This pack aims to provide players with problem-solving skills - including missing number problems including multiplication and division. Using informal pencil and paper methods to support and explain more complex addition and subtraction (2 and 3 digits).
Examples of how this works can be seen with the pictured samples of Explanation, Question and Answer cards.
Here's how you play:

Like the best card games, they are ideal for small group use - groups of students, or a family. But they can also be used in solitaire games to revise, or to reinforce. See howhere.
