National Numeracy, an organization that is dedicated to helping improve the math skills of people across the UK, has launched an innovative new math app that uses the fun and engagement of a gaming format to help teenagers and people in their early 20s to improve their math skills.

The game, which is dubbed Star Dash Studios, requires players to make use of different kinds of mathematics in the areas of percentages, estimation, measurements and so on to tackle problems and progress in the game.

The fact of the matter is that math skills are required by people across the board regardless of lifestyle or career choice, and the use of a fun and addictive game is a great way to prompt young people to polish up their math abilities.
