Numbers in Motion

Sophie Kowalevski, Queen of Mathematics

Meet Sophie Kowalevski, a girl who loved numbers, math, and solving equations, in this inspiring children’s biography based on a real-life legend. Notes and calculations dance across the pages in fanciful patterns and ciphers, and dramatic lights and shadows surround Sophie as she follows her dreams of becoming a successful woman mathematician, a feat unheard of in the late 1800s. End notes include a timeline, bibliography, and further details about Sophie’s personality and projects.
