    Danica McKellar is the bestselling author of Math Doesn't Suck, 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.

    The New York Times bestseller-from the "Dancing With The Stars" contestant and popular author ofMath Doesn't Suck, Hot X: Algebra Exposed, and Girls Get Curves-teaches girls how to kick pre-algebra butt

    In her New York Times bestselling books, actress and math genius Danica McKellar shatters the "math nerd" stereotype and gives girls the tools to ace middle-school math in her unique, just- us-girls style. Now, in her second book,Kiss My Math, McKellar empowers a new crop of girls-seventh to ninth graders-to tackle the next level of mathematics: pre-algebra.

    Stepping up not only the math but the sass and style, McKellar helps math-phobic teenagers moving up into high school chill out and finally "get" negative numbers, variables, absolute values, exponents, and more. As she did so effectively inMath Doesn't Suck, McKellar uses personality quizzes, reader polls, real-life testimonials, and stories from her own life-in addition to clear instruction, helpful tips, and practice problems-revealing why pre-algebra is easier, more relevant, and more glamorous than girls think. McKellar is clearly reaching her audience: parents, teachers, and especially girls are asking for more.

    • Made my life so much easier!
      Verified Purchase

      This book made my life so much easier. I am 32 years old and returning to school and math was NEVER my subject. But with this book I am able to remember because of the tips she gives. I recommend this for anyone having trouble with math. Of course it is aimed toward girls but the information is still useful.

      Bought this book for my granddaughter. It was recommended to me by my friend who is a baby boomer. She said that it was a delightful book that made math fun and easy for people of all ages, even us "boomers". My granddaughter is looking forward to reading it as she loves math but has to work hard at it. I skimmed through the book and looks like a fun way to learn!

      My 6th grader loved this. She already likes math, but was starting to see it as a 'boy' thing - reading this and seeing 'girl' examples (like using algebra to figure out bead combinations for bracelets) was terrific. Would I recommend it to others? I already have.
