        The Secret Life of Scientists & Engineers | Danica McKellar

        Meet mathematician Danica McKellar in this video profile from NOVA’s “The Secret Life of Scientists & Engineers.” As a child, Danica played Winnie Cooper on the classic TV show The Wonder Years. She struggled with her self-identity through college, constantly being referred to as “Winnie.” After performing at the top of her multivariable calculus class, she pursued a degree in mathematics and co-published a mathematics theorem. Danica now writes math textbooks targeted at middle-school girls to increase their self-confidence in the subject. This resource is part of the NOVA: Secret Life of Scientists & Engineers Collection.
