Product description

Review

This groundbreaking book is just what this country needs (Dr Sally Ride, first American woman in space)

McKellar is probably the only person on prime-time television who moonlights as a cyberspace math tutor (New York Times)

Maths Doesn't Suck is well explained, fun and rigorous. A great balance between emphasising 'you can do this' while also recognising sometimes you have to work at things that are worthwhile. Danica makes it clear that girls can be smart and cool (Mary Wimbury, Director, UK Mathematics Trust)

Well written and entertaining ... I would very much welcome anything that may help to increase the percentage of girls taking maths (Dr Dorothy Duffy, London Centre of Nanotechnology, University College London)

About the Author

Best known as a Hollywood actress, Danica McKellar is also an internationally renowned mathematician and champion of maths education. Born in La Jolla, California, and raised in Los Angeles, McKellar became a star aged 13 as Winnie Cooper in The Wonder Years and later as Elsie Snuffin in The West Wing. She studied mathematics at the University of California, Los Angeles and co-authored the groundbreaking Chayes-McKellar-Winn theorem of magnetism. McKellar has since advised the United States Senate on ways to improve the recruitment of women into mathematical and scientific professions and has been honoured in the Journal of Physics and the New York Times for her work in mathematics.
