New York Times bestselling author and mathemetician Danica McKellar tackles all the angles—and curves—of geometry

In her three previous bestselling books Math Doesn't Suck, Kiss My Math, and Hot X: Algebra Exposed!, actress and math genius Danica McKellar shattered the “math nerd” stereotype by showing girls how to ace their math classes and feel cool while doing it.

Sizzling with Danica's trademark sass and style, her fourth book, Girls Get Curves, shows her readers how to feel confident, get in the driver's seat, and master the core concepts of high school geometry, including congruent triangles, quadrilaterals, circles, proofs, theorems, and more!

Combining reader favorites like personality quizzes, fun doodles, real-life testimonials from successful women, and stories about her own experiences with illuminating step-by-step math lessons, Girls Get Curves will make girls feel like Danica is their own personal tutor.

As hundreds of thousands of girls already know, Danica's irreverent, lighthearted approach opens the door to math success and higher scores, while also boosting their self-esteem in all areas of life. Girls Get Curves makes geometry understandable, relevant, and maybe even a little (gasp!) fun for girls.

Review:

“Hot X: Algebra Exposed is a must-have for any teen or tween girl who feels nervous about Algebra class." -Washington Post
“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
