Author information

Danica McKellar is the bestselling author of "Math Doesn't Suck, Kiss My Math, " and, most recently, "Girls Get Curves." Best known for her roles on "The Wonder Years" and "The West Wing," Danica is also an internationally recognized mathematician and advocate for math education. A summa cum laude graduate of UCLA with a degree in Mathematics, she 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.
