X-Men : Math Mutants.
Feared and hated by humans because they’re different, the X-Men are heroic mutants, individuals born with special powers who’ve sworn to use their gifts to protect mutants as well as humans. In this lesson, students at Xavier’s School for the Gifted will learn to use their powers responsibly and teach others to do the same, using the knowledge they have acquired.
