Sophie Kowalevski, Queen of Mathematics

By Laurie Wallmark

Illustrated by Yevgenia Nayberg

    Women can do the math in this intriguing story about the first woman to receive a doctorate in mathematics that required original research, the first to hold a university chair in mathematics, and the first to be the editor of a major scientific journal. Sophie Kowalevski proved that women can add up to a lot!

 

    “I just love this beautiful book! The story’s messages of passion, determination, and perseverance are universal. The illustrations are the perfect accompaniment to Laurie’s words about how mathematical thinking helps explain our world.”

    — Lesley Burnap, Elementary School Teacher, Shrewsbury, MA

    “An inspiring story, beautifully told.”

    — Helaine Becker, bestselling author of Counting on
