Winnie Cooper grew up and became a math star. She even has a theorem named after her, as I recall. I used her first book when I taught a class of 3 8th grade girls algebra several years ago. They enjoyed the book, but I'm not sure they learned that much math. RE: Math Books - Dave Britten - 08-10-2015 03:22 PM
Whenever I see the covers of these books, I can never tell if they're trying to parody the style of trash teen magazines, or if they're genuinely copying the style as a sales tactic. Either way, I'm all for tearing down silly misconceptions like "boys don't like smart girls". RE: Math Books - Don Shepherd - 08-10-2015 03:50 PM

I imagine it's a little of both. I think it's great that stars like Danica McKellar and Mayim Bialik (Blossom) are helping girls understand math, and demonstrating that anyone can really do it. Girls are just as capable as boys of learning, and sometimes loving, math. |
