## Maria Gaetana Agnesi

My name is Danny Eldreth, and I researched and wrote a
paper about Maria Gaetana Agnesi for a Women in
Mathematics course taught by Dr. Sarah Greenwald at
Appalachian State University. If you are interested
in early female mathematicians, I encourage you to
take a look at what I found out about Maria Agnesi.

Very little is known about many early women
mathematicians. Many women experienced prejudices
because of their sex, therefore limiting their success
and acknowledgements in many fields such as
mathematics. Maria Agnesi is a pioneering female
mathematician who was able to publish in her name, and
one of her books became a widely used Calculus text.
Within Maria's text, she developed a curve that became
known as the "Witch of Agnesi" due to a
mistranslation.
