Availability information for this program
Each program features an episode from a 3D animated soap opera, which is set on board the venerable luxury cruise ship the SS Mathematical. The human crew, Fiz, Flo, Bradley, Baby Bunting and their parents Ted and Mirabelle, look after the needs and whims of twenty charming but demanding animal passengers. In each episode, the Number Crew encounters a problem, which can only be solved by the application of mathematical knowledge and skills. The viewers are encouraged to join with The Number Crew in identifying the mathematical concept at the heart of the problem and developing the mental strategies and skills required to solve it, and sail on into untroubled waters.
Episodes:

Lifeboat Practice
The Number Crew has to work out how many passengers should go in each lifeboat. The crew has a practice lifeboat drill but all the passengers get in a terrible muddle. Each lifeboat holds five passengers so if Bradley sends four, how many should Fiz send? She's not sure and the boat is overfull again. They realize they'll have to learn their number pairs which add to five off by heart. Math: Understanding addition, using number bonds to five.

After Lifeboat Practice
The Number Crew has to work out how many passengers are left in each lifeboat as some get out. The passengers are having a great time playing in the lifeboats and eating the supplies so they refuse to get out after practice. Bradley tries to order them out, but that doesn't help. Fiz asks nicely and the Panda gets out, because she's very polite. But how many does that leave in the boat? Math: Understanding subtraction using number bonds to five.
