About the Author

Danica McKellar is an American actress and academic best known for her roles on The Wonder Years and The West Wing. She graduated summa cum laude in mathematics from UCLA, went on to co-write a published math theorem, and continues to be an outspoken role model for young women to excel in mathematics.

 

About the Book

This book is dedicated to everyone who is having problems with maths, especially middle age students. As Danica McKellar put it, most of the problems with mathematics start in middle school and are often carried to high school and even university. Thus it’s important to fight the fear and frustration that is usually associated with learning mathematics. I mean let’s be honest – math has a really bad reputation. That is why McKellar’s aim is to crush this bad reputation and bring back the join and passion to this amazing subject. And she does a pretty good job at it.

In conclusion, I highly recommend this book to basically anyone, especially middle school students and their parents.
