Teachable Moment: Obviously this web site has a soft spot for fun and irreverent teaching and this is probably this math book achieves what most people thought near impossible: make pre-algebra fun and accessible.  What more can I say than that my daughter keeps a dog-eared copy as a reference book with her main math textbook?

Last year, actress and math genius Danica McKellar made waves nationwide, challenging the “math nerd” stereotype—and giving girls the tools to ace tests and homework in her unique just-us-girls style. Now, in Kiss My Math, McKellar empowers a new crop of girls—7th to 9th graders—taking on the next level of mathematics: pre-Algebra. Stepping up not only the math, but also the sass and style, Kiss My Math will help math-phobic teenagers everywhere chill out about math, and finally “get” negative numbers, variables, absolute values, exponents, and more.

Each chapter features:

  • Step-by-step instruction
  • Time-saving tips and tricks
  • Illuminating practice problems with detailed solutions
  • Real-world examples
  • True stories from Danica’s own life as a student and actress.

Kiss My Math also includes more fun extras--including personality quizzes, reader polls, and real-life testimonials-- ultimately revealing why pre-Algebra is easier, more relevant, and more glamorous than girls think.
