Algebra should be illegal! At least that’s what Dahlia told her dad, who took her complaints straight to the school board. Now, parents are protesting polynomials, and algebra is outlawed at Dahlia’s school. Math books are considered dangerous, and teachers are closely watched to make sure they don’t talk about radicals. But Dahlia’s starting to think that maybe math isn’t all that bad . . . If Dahlia’s father is already on his way to the capitol to introduce a bill banning algebra from schools across the state, how fast will Dahlia have to travel to stop him?
