She graduated from UCLA summa cum laude with a major in mathematics. Her work there as well as her first book received high praise from none other than Terence Tao. As with the previous two volumes, Hot X is both a mathematics book and a self-help manual for tween girls. Interspersed with the mathematics Algebra I in this case are numerous short quotes from students along with several longer testimonials from adult women who described how they overcame their fear or dislike of mathematics and forged successful careers in part because of their mathematics ability. As a result, it is definitely not an appropriate book for boys and may offend some teachers. The mathematics is for the most part very well done.
Post a Comment. Now that everyone is finally back in school, I have a book review for you guys. For the record, we are starting the 5th week of school here. We've already received the first round of grades and have adjusted priorities as required ; Meghan is now a Sophomore in High School, but it seems like 10 years ago that she was taking 6th grade math and asking for help. Back then I found a couple of books by Danica McKellar targeted at Middle School girls that helped both of us figure it out. Through middle school and part of Freshman year I was able to keep up with Meghan either by memory, or reviewing one of the books. Of course I made her read them too!
