In my book, students must solve the problems in order to discover the identity of the featured mathematician/scientist. This easy-to-use workbook is full of stimulating activities that will encourage student's interest in number and operations; algebra; geometry; measurement; data analysis and probability and statistics for grades 6 through 12. The class activity sheets are based on the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) standards. The activities can be used as a way to promote multicultural awareness and appreciation. The mathematician/scientists feature are Benjamin Banneker; Steven Chu; Leonardo da Vinci; Albert Einstein; Jaime Escalante; William Rowan Hamilton; Euphemia L. Haynes; Robert Megginson; Florence Nightingale; Helena Rasiowa; Mary Sommerville and Terrence Tao.
