‘School Of Hard Sums’ maths gameshow

School Of Hard Sums, the Dara O Briain-fronted maths game show from Dave (based on the Emmy-award nominated Japanese comedy-panel format Comaneci University Mathematics) starts an 8 episode run 16th April at 8pm on Dave. A page at the British Comedy Guide says:

Showing how maths underpins everything in the world around us, each programme sees two main problems for Dara to crack using numbers and equations, while a second comedian attempts a solution with more physical methods. To discover how many different people to date before choosing a partner, Dara uses the Optimal Stopping Theory; trying to predict a football score, Bayesian statistics come to Dara’s rescue.
