This is an educational program with a new approach, teaching the basics of mathematics through everyday problem-solving situations in a comedy-drama style. The main character is Barky, a dog that works in a “math police office”. Numbler, the comic villain, misguides people into making common mathematical errors in their daily activities. Barky and his fellow human "math police" officers solve the problems in creative and logical ways. The entertaining format will help elementary school children discover that "math is fun".
