About the Book

Jake has a problem—a BIG Math problem. A teenage tutor comes to his rescue, and that’s when the fun begins. His eagerness to show what he’s learned turns into trouble—especially for know-it-all Angela.
Jake gives his teacher Miss Winters a bouquet of poison ivy and steals the show with his wacky Math rap. Pretty soon, marbles are rolling under his teacher’s feet, and students are shedding their clothes. But when Jake brings a sword to school to teach division, not-to-be outdone Angela, with scissors in hand, shows him how division is really done.
With chaos in the classroom and Jake’s gravity- defying hair, who knows what will happen next in the very hilarious story of THE MATH PROBLEM.
