Prepare to be inspired. The Women of Mathematics is a full-colour volume that takes aim at the forgotten influence of women on the development of mathematics over the last two millennia.You'll see each eminent mathematician come to life on each page, women like the astronomer-philosopher Hypatia, theoretical physicist Emmy Noether, and rocket scientist Annie Easley. The Women of Mathematics is an affirmation of female genius and a celebration of the boundless applications of mathematics. See their stories!
