STEAM Queens: Women in Mathematics

Class
Sadie (Sarah) Thiagarajan
Average rating:5.0Number of reviews:(11)
In this 12-week online course, we will explore the lives and work of pioneering women in mathematics, from ancient to modern times. Note: Each class is a complete lesson, joining late at a pro-rated fee is possible.

Class experience

Students will learn about the Mathematical innovator of the week. They should be able to verbalize several facts they have learned, including a basic biography, the woman's greatest contribution to the world of mathematics, and at least one interesting or unusual fact. 
I worked as a Math Intervention Specialist for four years in a public charter school in California. I have taught math, science, art, and run a computer lab. The STEAM Queens project (then called "Women of STEM") was begun in preparation for International Women's Day, 2017. I am currently working on several STEAM-related projects as part of my Washington State Teacher re-certification.
Method of note taking, if desired. 
Curiosity and enthusiasm are strongly encouraged. 

Additional information such as links and supplemental activities will be posted on the classroom message board.
Many of these women have been subject to sexism in their field of choice. Gender bias will be addressed in an age-appropriate manner.

I am a polymath, a person who has many interests and loves all kinds of learning, over many subjects. I am also an auto-didact: I love to learn on my own. so very likely, I'm a lot like you. 
I have taught many subjects, but some of my favorites...
