In this episode, Mitchell must pass the dreaded 'Assignment 51' maths exam to avoid the awful fate of summer school!

Not one to let logic and sense get in the way of an easy fix, Mitchell sets out to find the mythical 101% answer paper from the 1950s. Submitting it as his own, Mitchell breaks the World of Maths and odd things begin to happen at Strange Hill.

In the new alternate Maths World, Mitchell is a boy genius. The Ministry of Applied Mathematics hears of Mitchell's new-found intelligence and sets out to encase the school in concrete and store Mitchell's brain in a jar. How will Mitchell save the school, and his own brain in the process?
