# What's On UEN-TV

### The Number Crew - Spanish K - 2

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.
