From the author of the runaway bestseller Math Doesn't Suck, the next step in the math curriculum-- pre-Algebra.
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.
