Designed by math teacher Jim McClain in an effort to make middle school math more engaging for his students, Solution Squad is a comic about a team of teenage heroes, each with a different math-based superpower with storylines that teach mathematical concepts.
In 2017, a 144-page hardcover book will be published with five complete stories featuring the heroes. There will also be dozens of pages of lesson plans, activities, and game to go with it!
