Today’s Birthday: Danica McKellar

It's January 3, and actress and mathematician Danica McKellar turns 39 years old today.  She's probably best-known for her role as Winnie Cooper in The Wonder Years, but after that series concluded, she turned her attention to education and earned a degree in mathematics from UCLA.  In addition to continuing her acting career, Danica has written several books designed to make teenagers–especially girls–more comfortable with math.  While the American School cannot officially endorse the content of those books, we do encourage our students to find the assistance that is most helpful to them.  You may find it in one of Danica's books or in books by other authors.  You might find assistance by visiting the homework web sites we have listed in the Online Student Center.  Perhaps our help sheets will provide you with the most assistance.  Finally, you can call or email your instructor by using the contact information listed in the Online Student Center.  We are happy to provide you a variety of sources for assistance so that you can do your very best as you work toward your accredited high school diploma from the American School.
