Product Description

Review

This groundbreaking book is just what this country needs -- Dr Sally Ride, first American woman in space McKellar is probably the only person on prime-time television who moonlights as a cyberspace math tutor New York Times Maths Doesn't Suck is well explained, fun and rigorous. A great balance between emphasising 'you can do this' while also recognising sometimes you have to work at things that are worthwhile. Danica makes it clear that girls can be smart and cool Mary Wimbury, Director, UK Mathematics Trust Well written and entertaining ... I would very much welcome anything that may help to increase the percentage of girls taking maths -- Dr Dorothy Duffy, London Centre of Nanotechnology, University College London --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

About the Author

Danica McKellar is the bestselling author of Kiss My Math, Hot X: Algebra Exposed, and, most recently, Girls Get Curves. Best known for her roles on The Wonder Years and The West Wing, Danica McKellar is also an internationally recognized mathematician and advocate for math education. A summa cum laude graduate of UCLA with a degree in Mathematics, Danica has been honored in Britain’s esteemed Journal of Physics and The New York Times for her work in mathematics, most notably for her role as co-author of a groundbreaking mathematical physics theorem, which bears her name (The Chayes-McKellar-Winn Theorem.) Her passion for promoting girls’ math education began in 2000, when she was invited to speak before Congress on the importance of women in math and science. Since then, Danica has made it a priority to find time in her busy acting schedule to promote math education, often appearing around the country as a speaker at national mathematics conferences.

I homeschool my daughters and my 10 year old has hated math for many years. I bought this book hoping it might appeal to her and it has! Even more than I had expected! She now LOVES her math lessons and is confident in the subjects explained. Danica has a great way of making mnemonics and other techniques to remember math concepts. We recommend this book and will be buying the sequel very soon!

I bought this for my niece and I have been hearing how great this book is from her AND her parents. Apparently it got her interested in math so much. I would buy it for my daughter soon as she just turned 9.

I wanted to brush up on my math skills since it was always my worst subject as a child. I love this book. I wish I had purchased it sooner to help my daughter when she was in middle school.
