### References concerning Maria Agnesi:

History of Agnesi Site -> This source was very helpful when
researching Agnesi and her life. This source gives
quotes from other sources concerning her life and what
people said about her.
Mathematics Teacher 62 (1969) 480-482 -> This is a
really good source that gives a very brief, but
thorough, glimpse about some of the mysteries
concerning her life, like "did she really become a
professor or mathematics?" This source also talks
about the mistranslation that lead to one of the
curves that she discussed in her Calculus text
becoming known as the "witch."

American Mathematical Monthly, Volume 25, Issue 5
(May, 1918), 223-225 -> This source gives, in my
opinion, a very difficult development of the "Witch of
Agnesi."

American Mathematical Monthly, Volume 64, Issue 5
(May, 1957), 359-361 -> This is a good source for the
reason why the curve became known as the "Witch of
Agnesi," and the source also gives a nice picture for
the development of the curve.

"Maria Gaetana Agnesi" C. Truesdell -> This is a very
lengthy and thorough source concerning Maria's life,
family, and mathematics. This source also addresses
contradictions that sometimes arrise when discussing
Maria, like "did she teach at a universiy?" and "did
she ever become a nun?" This source even discusses
some letters that Agnesi sent to scholars concerning
the Calculus text that she was writing.

"The Witch of Agnesi: A Lasting Contribution from the
First Surviving Mathematical Work Written by a Women."
The College Mathematics Journal vol. 30, no. 4,
September 1999 -> This source was most helpful to me
when discussing the development of the "Witch of
Agnesi" in my paper. The development discussed in
this course is fairly easy to follow and demonstrate
to others.

Agnes Scott Site
-> This
is a wonderful source for one to view if the are
having trouble "seeing" the development of the
"witch." It allows one to acutally see how the curve
is generated.
jwilson.coe.uga.edu/Texts.Folder/Agnesi/witch.html ->
This source gives a lengthy discussion concerning the
graph of the "witch." The site also allows one to
animate the curve through the use of Geometer's
Sketchpad.

History of the Witch
-> This website gives a very good history of the
"witch." It also gives a description of the curve,
formulas relating to the curve, properties of the
curve, and related websites.

Curve
-> This website discusses the curve, gives equations
for the curve, and allows one to "interact" with the
curve.
