How to learn darts maths?

Learning the darts maths can be really hard and daunting in the beginning and it is easy to rely on app/website darts scorers to understand what checkout is left and needed to finish the leg.

On forums and Facebook groups the answer to ”How do I learn darts maths” from more experienced players is often ”Start chalking” or ”Just play more 501’s”. These answers will improve your maths skills eventually but there are smarter ways to learn and remember the important checkouts. It is just as learning any skills, the best way is to both do practical and theoretical training to learn the skill as fast as possible.

Learning through play

Researchers have discovered that educational applications of games might be even more powerful than we ever anticipated. The use of games is really useful when it comes to learning and transferring factual knowledge. It’s obvious that when learning becomes fun and easy, people are quicker to engage and benefit.

Many people are having trouble with counting and maths, even if it is only the subtraction part of maths that you need to know. No matter how much they try, they still think it is like reading in some language they don’t understand.

That’s why learning how to calculate in combination with remembering the different checkout combinations is the fastest way to learn darts maths.

Suggested exercises to learn darts maths faster

Use tools like Darts Mathlete, Flip Out and Swipe Out

With these games, you can practice darts on the bus, train, or on a flight without the need for a board and darts. Being regularly visually exposed to checkouts and training your brain to either calculate the checkouts or just remember the combinations, will speed up your darts maths skills. Learning while playing games are also a proven successful combination.

Flip Out

The Flip Out – Darts Maths game will teach darts maths in a new fun way.
Match the cards shown to complete every level.

Swipe Out

You’ll be shown cards with suggested checkouts and you need to decide if the checkout card is TRUE or FALSE. Swipe RIGHT for TRUE and LEFT for FALSE.
You got 60 seconds to play but with 3 wrong answers and it is game over.

Darts Mathlete

Darts Mathlete is all about repetition. You choose the checkout to start with and you then will be shown alternatives to solve the checkout.
