Let's make math fun and sexy and glamorous. Smart is sexy, that's one of my main messages.
It's really cool when a guy tips 20 per cent quickly and effortlessly so that when the check comes, he opens it and signs his name and done.
I noticed there were so many people, especially women, who would come up to me having recognized me from TV and say, 'I heard you were a math person, why math? Oh my gosh, I could never do math!' I could just see their self-esteem crumbling; I thought that was silly, so I wanted to make math more friendly and accessible.
There is an epidemic right now of girls dumbing themselves down... in middle school because they think it makes them attractive.
