Well known for her acting roles on The Wonder Years, The West Wing and for earning quarterfinalist on "Dancing with the Stars," Danica McKellar graduated summa cum laude in mathematics from UCLA, went on to co-write a published math theorem, now known as the Chayes-McKellar-Winn Theorem, and continues to be an outspoken role model for young women to excel in math. Danica was the recipient of the 2014 Joint Mathematics Meeting Communications Award for her work as an author. She has written a New York Times bestselling series of math books: Math Doesn't Suck, Kiss My Math, Hot X: Algebra Exposed, and Girls Get Curves: Geometry Takes Shape. Upon the release of her first book in the series, Math Doesn't Suck, Danica was named Person of the Week by ABC World News. These revolutionary books help girls ace their math classes while building self-esteem and encouraging a self-sufficient, confident attitude in school - and life.
By popular demand, Danica has begun to write books for a younger age group, the first of which is titled "Goodnight, Numbers," an adorable counting book that uses Danica's expertise to teach toddlers to recognize numbers as a natural part of their world - as friendly, accessible, and associated with cuddles before bed. "Goodnight, Numbers" hits the shelves March 2017, and is available for pre-order on Amazon now!
