The New York Timesbestseller—from the author of Math Doesn’t Suck—teaches girls how to kick pre-algebra butt In her New York Timesbestselling 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 chill out and finally “get” negative numbers, variables, absolute values, exponents, and more. As she did so effectively in Math 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.

Danica Mae McKellar was born on January 3, 1975. She is an American actress, author and education advocate. She is best known for her role as Winnie Cooper in the television show The Wonder Years, and later as author of the two New York Times bestsellers, Math Doesn't Suck: How to Survive Middle-School Math without Losing Your Mind or Breaking a Nail, and Kiss My Math: Showing Pre-Algebra Who's Boss, both of which encourage middle-school girls to learn mathematics. Her third math book, Hot X: Algebra Exposed, will be published later in 2010. McKellar studied at UCLA, and majored in mathematics.
