Summary
"When Emmy Noether is born in 1882, no one knows she's going to become a visionary mathematician. Back then, girls were expected to be gentle and quiet -- definitely not geniuses. But Emmy is a genius! And she's much more interested in math than in learning to cook and sew. Though she faces sexism and anti-Semitism, she perseveres to earn her mathematics degree and teach at a university. And when Einstein's famous Theory of Relativity has a problem that no one can solve, Emmy gets the chance of a lifetime to prove herself. That's just the first of her lasting contributions to the fields of computer science and theoretical physics. Emmy's extraordinary story is finally shared in this charming picture book biography by bestselling, award-winning children's author Helaine Becker and illustrator Kari Rust. Becker's spirited text and Rust's warm illustrations bring Emmy's lively personality to life with an appealing touch of humour. Emmy faces down every challenge with steadfast belief in her own abilities and a true love of math -- a growth mindset that will inspire young readers. With kid-friendly explanations of advanced math and physics concepts, the book provides tons of STEM curriculum links, along with a thoroughly researched biographical note about Emmy's life and sources for further reading."--Provided by publisher
