SummaryAdd a Summary
In a book directed toward girls who are struggling with mathematics, Danica McKellar addresses topics from the seventh grade mathematics curriculum. She explains prime factorization, greatest common factor (greatest common divisor), lowest common multiple (least common multiple), fractions, decimals, percents, ratios, rates, proportions, and linear equations. The primary mathematical focus is on fractions. McKellar explains when two fractions are equivalent; how to add, subtract, multiply, and divide fractions; how to convert between decimals, fractions, and percents; and how to use fractions, decimals, and percents to solve word problems. McKellar also provides guidance about studying, emphasizes the importance of developing a good mind, and encourages girls to persevere when they are struggling, using personal anecdotes and testimonials from other young, successful women who overcame obstacles through hard work and persistence.
