Description


The New York Times bestselling math workbook from actress and math genius Danica McKellar that teaches seventh to ninth grade girls how to conquer 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 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.

Praise For…


“McKellar...may well have done more to encourage girls to stick with math than any government task force...the wildly enthusiastic response [her books] have received speaks to the effect that can be achieved by reworking the contents of standard math and science problems and countering the perception that boys won't like girls who are smart.”—Eileen Pollack, The New York Times
