She is successful at making math understandable ... and fun. Male readers and those of us who have long since put our high school years behind us can learn / re-learn much forgotten math in these volumes. (Keep in mind: McKellar's illustrative stories are geared toward females in grades 5 through 12). The website for each book provides fully worked-out solutions to all the practice problems contained in the main text.
It is also very admirable that Ms. McKellar provides pep-talks in each book to encourage and empower young women to overcome their math anxiety and to never "dumb-down" in order to perpetuate the damaging myth that popular, poised and attractive female students don't "do" math.
Hopefully she will write additional volumes in the future covering the basics of Trigonometry, Pre-Calc and Calculus!
Danica is able to make math fun! She takes math, and likens it to everyday situations that girls might enjoy. Math is turned into quizzes, problems about shopping, boys, and other things she could relate to. Her mom also said it helps raise her confidence about doing math, and has given her a more positive outlook. We have already seen improvements in her ability to work the problems in her homework, and her grades are back on the rise.
