Julie hates algebra - until she meets a gebra named Al. Julie keeps getting the wrong answer to what looks like a simple problem: -5 + 3 (6). Frustrated, she gives up, rests her head on her book...and is awakened by an Imaginary Number who suddenly appears in her room. When she follows the Number through a mysterious portal, she enters the Land of Mathematics, where the Orders of Operations are real places and fruits that look like Bohr models grow on chemistrees. With Al and his friends - scientific ‘horses’ representing elements and their isotopes - Julie travels to the Mathemetician’s Castle for help in finding her way back home.
