From a well-known actress, math genius and popular contestant on "Dancing With The Stars" a groundbreaking guide to mathematics for middle school girls, their parents, and educators As the math education crisis in this country continues to make headlines, research continues to prove that it is in middle school when math scores begin to drop especially for girls in large part due to the relentless social conditioning that tells girls they can t do math, and that math is uncool. Young girls today need strong female role models to embrace the idea that it s okay to be smart in fact, it s sexy to be smart! It s Danica McKellar s mission to be this role model, and demonstrate on a large scale that math doesn t suck . In this fun and accessible guide, McKellar dubbed a math superstar by The New York Times gives girls and their parents the tools they need to master the math concepts that confuse middle-schoolers most, including fractions, percentages, pre-algebra, and more. The book features hip, real-world examples, step-by-step instruction, and engaging stories of Danica s own childhood struggles in math (and stardom). In addition, borrowing from the style of today s teen magazines, it even includes a Math Horoscope section, Math Personality Quizzes, and Real-Life Testimonials ultimately revealing why math is easier and cooler than readers think."

As an adult I didn't need the whole book but there were math situations that I have struggled with since middle school. Danica's way of bringing you through it is funny and fun so it was actually fun to try to learn what I missed the first time I went through math. I would recommend this to girls and women who struggle with math.
