Mathematicians are often overlooked when listing the most famous people in the world. More often than not their work goes unnoticed, even more so if they are women. Sometimes they are listed as scientists or with a man’s name! Without these great female mathematicians, however, we would not have reached the moon, figured out how to build skyscrapers, and explain many of the everyday things that occur around us. This project will give us a chance to look at some of the amazing things that women in mathematics have done and discovered. Your objective is to research a famous woman in mathematics and discover her achievements and contributions to society and history.
