This program is in honor of Sonya Kovalevsky, an outstanding 19th century mathematician and the first woman to receive a doctoral degree in mathematics. It is a one - day event with mathematics activities organized for high school girls and their teachers (male or female). The purpose is to encourage young women to continue their study of mathematics and prepare for possible careers in mathematics - related fields.
Join us on the campus of Mississippi University for Women (MUW) for the Sonia Kovalevsky High School Mathematics Day. The event includes a mathematics competition exam and mathematics workshops for high school girls and their teachers.
