Alumna Danica McKellar '93 may be best known to the general public for her roles on The Wonder Years and The West Wing. But last week, McKellar's book, Math Doesn't Suck: How to Survive Middle-School Math Without Losing Your Mind or Breaking a Nail, hit bookshelves nationwide and is receiving rave reviews. Check it out on Amazon.com .
McKellar graduated from Harvard-Westlake in 1993, and graduated summa cum laude in mathematics from the University of California, Los Angeles. She went on to co-write a published math theorem, and continues to be an outspoken role model for young women to excel in math.
"This is very exciting to me, a chance to spread my love of math and the power and confidence that comes from tackling a 'hard' subject and mastering it," McKellar told Harvard-Westlake. "Ms. Barbara Jacobson figures prominently in the introduction to my book. And I specifically thank her and the late Mr. (Mike) Metzger in the acknowledgements."
