    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 esteemedJournal 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 choose this book thinking that it would cover middle school math and I was wrong. This book is either out dated or very behind with middle school math. I did not care for the examples of purses and boyfriends etc.. Not all middle school girls like to shop and are interested in boys, therefore the examples should have included other examples.
