2: Charlotte Barnum was born on May 17, 1860 - March 27, 1934. She was born in Phillipston, Massachusetts. In 1892 she moved to Yale University, and in 1895 she became the first of three women to receive Ph.D.'s in mathematics from Yale before 1900. Her studies were on "Functions Having Lines or Surfaces of Discontinuity." Barnum joined the American Mathematical Society in 1894, the first year of the Society's being after its change in name from the New York Mathematical Society. After receiving her Ph.D. in mathematics, she taught at Carleton College. Between 1898 and 1913, she held many jobs in the insurance industry as an actuary, at the U.S. Naval Observatory, the U.S. Coast and Geodesic Survey, and with the U.S. Department of Agriculture as an editor for the Biological Survey. In some publications it is said that Barnum did editorial work for the Yale Peruvian Expedition and after, she worked as a proofreader for the scientific publications at Yale University. Lenore Blum was a very bright and artistic child that loved science and mathematics. She finished high school at the age of 16 and applied for M.I.T, who turned her down for

3: from Simmons, but received her Ph.D. from M.I.T in 1968. She was one of the first members of the Association for Women in Mathematics, of which she was later president. In 1973 she was hired at Mills College to teach an algebra class. She was determined to change, to make more interesting and more enjoyable for both instructor and student. She stuck with this for 13 years. BY: Bethany Heinlein | several attempts to register. She began college at Carnegie Tech in Pittsburgh studying first architecture and then math. For her third year she registered for Simmons, a women’s school in Boston. She didn’t like the mathematics course of the school because it wasn’t challenging enough for her. She graduated

4: design surveys and experiments. Statisticians analyze and interpret numerical data. They can work in businesses and in the government. If you would like your career to be a statistician, then you probably need a master’s degree. You also should have computer skills and good speaking and writing skills. Electrical Engineer: Do you like to design new and better electronics? Do you like to test equipment and solve problems? Then being an electrical engineer is for you! | Have you always liked Math? Would you like a career involving Math? Well, Good News! Here are some careers that could use your Math Education! Statistician: Do you like to collect data to learn how safe products are? Then being a statistician is for you! A statistician can help

5: Electrical engineers work on all kinds of project like cars, robots, cell phone systems, the lighting and wiring on building, and radar and navigation systems. They work in offices, labs, and in industrial plants. When beginning a project, first, they decide what the new electronic will do. Next, the engineer designs the circuits and other parts of the electronic on a computer. Then, they test them! If you would like your career to be an electrical engineer then you will | need a college degree in engineering. You should also be creative, curious, logical, and detail-orientated. by: Madelyn Ellis

6: By: Nadine Kennedy Albert Einstein was born in Ulm, Germany in March 14, 1879. After moving to Milan, Einstein relinquished his German citizenship in favor of Swiss. He failed an examination that would | have allowed him to study for a diploma at Zurich as an electrichave allowed him to study for a diploma at Zurich as an electrical engineer. After attending secondary school at Aarau, Einstein returned to Zurich in 1896 and graduated as a secondary school teacher of mathematics and pchysics in the year 1900. al engineer. After attending secondary school at Aarau, Einstein returned to Zurich in 1896 and graduated as a secondary school teacher of mathematics and pchysics in the year 1900.

7: Zurich. Einstein remained on the staff in Berlin until 1933 from which he held a research position at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton. In his second paper, Einstein proposed what is now known as the scientific theory of relativity and later he showed how mass and energy were equivalent. Einstein has also made great contributions to quantum theory. Einstein received the Nobel Prize in 1921 for his work in the photoelectric effect. He died in Princeton, USA, on April 19, 1955. | After attending secondary school at Aarau, Einstein returned to Zurich in 1896 and graduated as a secondary school teacher of mathematics and pchysics in the year 1900. Einstein worked in and patent office in Bern from 1902 through 1909. In 1914, Einstein received a doctorate from the University of Zurich and in 1918 he became a lecturer at the University of Bern. The following year, he became a professor of physics at the University

9: Math Competition Where? Cates Center When? Thursday 21-22 Time 10 a.m.- 6 p.m What is it? This is a math competition for all the boys and girls ou there from the ages of 13-16. | This is a chance to show off your math skills and have a chance to win $500 and a trip to Hawaii for a weekend for you and one friend only. You will be required to know all the formulas from pre-algebra up to geometry. Sign up now before it’s too late! If you have any questions contact Jonathan Cates at 1-800-783-4473.

11: Math teacher wanted! For grades 6-8 we need a pre-algebra and geometry teacher at Sacred Heart middle school. You must need to have a degree in teaching and know all the equations and formulas Ex.: Circumference of a circle If you are interested in the job Please contact us by the 21st. 1-800-276-9382 Thank you!
