An engaging picture book biography of a groundbreaking female mathematician. Emmy Noether is not pretty, quiet or good at housework — all the things a girl of her time is expected to be. What she is, though, is brilliant at math. And when she grows up, she skirts the rules to first study math at a university and then teach it. She also helps to solve of the most pressing mathematical and physics problems of the day. And though she doesn’t get much credit during her lifetime, her discoveries continue to influence how we understand the world today. One of the most influential mathematicians of the twentieth century finally gets her due!
