The movie starts off with a Mother who can’t seem to get into medical school while her daughter, Sammy can’t stay put of trouble at school. Where do the pennies (or CENTS) come in? In detention and from Samy’s calculus tutor’s math question one day in class. In an attempt to make millions in a school penny drive, things start spiraling out of control for Sammy. Sammy may get into trouble, but her mathematical mind is incredible. Her plan just my work and when things do get out of control, her next plan will be to save her reputation.
It is a great movie that would make a good school screener for students. The movie displays a little bit of STEM with a bit of the bullying factor and a lot of teamwork. Within just the first 15 minutes of the movie I was dying to know the outcome.
