A commendable goal, but why, oh why, do we have to do this through Hollywood stereotypes, sex appeal, lipstick, and crushes on boys? So now the message is not that girls have to be like boys in order to do well in math, it is that girls must be attractive to boys in order to do well in math. Oh, yeah, that's a step up.
