Pressestimmen

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) -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Taschenbuch .

Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

Danica McKellar is the bestselling author of Kiss My Math, Hot X: Algebra Exposed, and, most recently, Girls Get Curves. Best known for her roles on The Wonder Years and The West Wing, Danica McKellar is also an internationally recognized mathematician and advocate for math education. A summa cum laude graduate of UCLA with a degree in Mathematics, Danica has been honored in Britain’s esteemed Journal of Physics and The New York Times for her work in mathematics, most notably for her role as co-author of a groundbreaking mathematical physics theorem, which bears her name (The Chayes-McKellar-Winn Theorem.) Her passion for promoting girls’ math education began in 2000, when she was invited to speak before Congress on the importance of women in math and science. Since then, Danica has made it a priority to find time in her busy acting schedule to promote math education, often appearing around the country as a speaker at national mathematics conferences.

4 von 5 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von Martin Neumann am 26. Juli 2009
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Ältere erinnern sich vielleicht: Danica McKellar war der Star der Serie "Wunderbare Jahre" irgendwann Anfang der Neunziger. Heute sieht man sie im TV nur noch dann und wann als Gaststar (z.B. 2x in "How I Met Your Mother" -- die Sache mit der Ananas). Sie hat Mathematik studiert. Das Chayes-McKellar-Winn-Theorem ist nach ihr benannt.

Richtig erfolgreich geworden ist sie in den USA mit ihren Mathe-Büchern, und dieses Buch ist eins davon. In plauderhaft lockerer, für meinen Geschmack an verschiedenen Stellen etwas gezwungen wirkender Jugendsprache erklärt sie Mathematik so, dass man es verstehen kann, und das findet man in Lehrbüchern leider nicht so oft. Mit Vergleichen und Beispielen, die der Welt eines Jugendlichen nahe sind, und mit einigen erstaunlich einfachen Tricks, die mir z.B. niemals beigebracht wurden, rollt sie das für viele so Schrecken erregende Schulfach von vorn auf, beginnend beim Einmaleins, und versucht nicht nur, ein grundlegendes Verständnis für Mathematik zu schaffen, sondern auch zu zeigen, dass Mathematik Spaß machen und begeistern kann -- gelungen, wie ich finde.

Sehr bedauerlich ist, dass sich McKellars Buch explizit an Mädchen richtet und die Jungs in Beispielen und Anekdoten auf beinahe aggressive Weise ausschließt. Der männliche Jugendliche, der in der Geschlechterfrage womöglich empfindlich eingestellt ist, muss auf die wirklich hervorragenden Lehren verzichten.

Imagine "Teen Cosmo" publishing INTRO TO JUNIOR-HIGH MATH 4. August 2007
Von Thomas Richardson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
When I was seven, my mother got a Mathematics degree. At 29, I got my own Mathematics degree -- and of 60 people that day who got Math bachelor degrees then and there with me, only three were women. My mother proved, and those three co-graduating women proved, and Danica proves now, that women can learn math. But that's not what junior-high and high school girls think, is it? Most teen girls think they're math-morons.

Danica has written this book for such math-panicked teen girls -- Danica has written this book not only to TEACH them, but to ENCOURAGE them: "You can learn this!"

The math covered in Danica's book is junior-high level -- Danica presumes that the reader already knows how to add, subtract, multiply, and divide; then Danica takes the reader up through Algebra I. Danica's math is solid; and Danica's explanations, easy to understand.

But this is not your brother's math book. If you flipped through the book quickly, not reading the text, the illustrations and all the girly-handwriting would make you think that it was a book about teen fashion. The book also has chapter headings like no other math book I've seen -- Chapter 7, for instance, is entitled, "Is Your Sister Trying to Cheat You Out of Your Fair Share? (Comparing Fractions)." Chapter 9, on complex fractions, starts out, "Say you're trying on an outfit for a party. You've got the dress, the shoes, and the earrings -- and now you're choosing the right necklace...."

Danica also includes three "testimonials" (profiles) of young women who are successful in their careers because they've mastered math. Rather than show three "Ugly Betties" or nerdettes, the three women profiled are BABES.

To me, the most amazing thing about her book is that she tells the "blank quiz" story about herself: In a seventh-grade math class, "[w]hen the bell rang and my quiz was still blank, I wanted to disappear into my chair. I just didn't want to EXIST."

When I read this book, I learned something. Not about math, but about people. Junior-high girls, in particular. I give this book a 4.99999999999999999...-star rating.

Makeup and math? Hallelujah! 2. August 2007
Von Julie Neal - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
What will this book teach your daughter? That she can work out math problems by herself. That she can learn to love math, and even excel at it. And that she can do these things while still being every bit as girlie as she wants to be. Makeup and math? Yes, this book says, you can love them both.

Will girls read it? I think so, because, unlike so many academic texts, "Math Doesn't Suck" is so much more than a study guide. Author McKellar -- yes, Winnie Cooper from "The Wonder Years" but also a summa cum laude math grad from UCLA -- combines a step-by-step approach to middle-school math concepts with lots of personal anecdotes (such as how she once struggled with particular math problems) as well as stories of how other feminine women have excelled in the subject. Also adding some insight is McKellar's 12-year-old goddaughter, Tori.

Best of all, McKellar makes her points well. Each chapter is devoted to just one topic (i.e., decimals, or factoring) and uses real-life situations (baby-sitting, shopping) that really make things easy to understand.

Overall the book's chapter titles are a little too pink-and-purple for my tastes, but then again I'm not the target audience. I'm not 13, striving to define myself while getting Paris Hilton, the Pussycat Dolls and Hooters commercials driven into my brain. Girls can be smart AND feminine? Math is for them? Say amen, somebody!

A must read for any middle school girl! 10. August 2007
Von Kansas City Dale - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I came across this book based on a news article about Danica McKellar. As the proud father of two middle school aged children (one boy and one girl) I am already seeing how differently boys are treated than girls when it comes to Math and Science. The schools seem to teach math from the male point of view. I can easily explain a math concept to my son and he can understand it, but I have not been able to explain the same concept to my daughter.
The book arrived last week, and my daughter seems to always have her nose in it. The book isn't designed to be read cover to cover, but to jump around as topics interest you. We had terrible problems last year with fractions, but after reading the section of fractions, my daughter claims that "she gets it". I have never seen my daughter excited about Math like this. If you have a middle school daughter who is struggling with the concepts, this is a must read for her.

My only complaint is that Danica hasn't written a survival guide for science yet! I am ordering a second book as a gift for the 6th grade math teacher to help with other girls who are struggling.

math for the masses in junior and high school classes 5. Mai 2008
Von Michael R. Chernick - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This Danica is as good looking as the racing Danica and a great actress. She's a math whiz too. Well as a trained mathematician I can assure you that she proves in this book that she knows math, is proud of it and want other high school and junior high school girls to appreciate it too. The book is filled with interesting ways of teach junior and senior high school math that makes it fun and exciting. She would be a great teacher too. I think her goal is to be a role model for other girls who have an aptitude for mathematics. Girls have always been discouraged and discriminated against in this field. I remember at my high school I was the best math student but Linda Cirillo was a close second. Yet I was the one who got the encouragement and her talents were ignored. Years later I came back to my home town and found that while I was now a professional mathematician she was a house wife raising children. I hope things have improved over the last forty years.

This is a great book to give a child in high school who needs a little help and boost of confidence in math. When an author ahs the art of making things exciting rather than boring the student may develop an interest and capability that he or she never dreamed of!

Tested out of 2 Math College classes with this book 15. Dezember 2009
Von Y. Plymale - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I am a 38-year old mother of 5 who recently decided to go back to school. I took my placement test and tested into the lowest class available which was Basic Math. I was told that I could retake the test so I went to the library and checked out a bunch of math books to study and get prepared. I found Danica's book "Math Doesn't Suck" I read it first and read the entire book in one night. I loved it and everything began to make sense. I studied it for 2 weeks then went back and took my test again and tested into Intro to Algebra! I essentially skipped Basic Math and Pre-Algebra! This achievement has brought me renewed confidence in myself at a time when I need it most! It has saved me money and time that is so valuable to me. I live in Southern Ohio and am attending Hocking College! I am excited to read "Kiss my Math". Also I was told that she is writing a 3rd book in an email from her company. Thanks for writing a book that actually makes sense!
