With a grant from PNC Bank and support from many Hood offices, the Department of Mathematics will hold its eighth Sonia Kovalevsky Math Day for High School Girls on Monday, March 11, 2013. This day honors the first woman to receive a doctorate in mathematics and encourages young women to continue their study of mathematics. Students and teachers from each Frederick County high school are expected to participate this year.
The day will feature workshops led by Hood faculty and others, including Barbie Bungee Jumping, Math and Music and "Deal or No Deal" problems, as well as lunch with Hood students, faculty and administrators, and a career panel of women who use math in their jobs.
Current Hood students, including members of Hood's student chapter of the Association for Women in Mathematics, will serve as volunteers for the day.
