Praise For…


“Danica McKellar is a great teacher! She's warm and funny, and best of all, she explains algebra so clearly. My wife and I immediately ordered her books [for] our daughters.”—Steven Strogatz, New York Times columnist and professor of mathematics, Cornell University

“In my 20+ years as a math teacher, rarely have I seen a book that makes mathematics so clear and fun! I highly recommend Danica McKellar's new book, Hot X: Algebra Exposed for perplexed students and puzzled algebra teachers looking for a way to engage today's students with fresh, entertaining lesson plans.”—Dennis Van Roekel, President, National Education Association

“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
