Less than three years later her mother passed away after fighting tuberculosis for five years. It is said that her first lessons in chemistry and physics were taught to her by her father who was a Professor of Math and Physics. Even though Marie had her mothers and sisters death she did not let it affect her academic success and was the best student in her class. She graduated at the age of 15 from high school where she received a gold medal for her academic success. Marie knew she wanted to get an advance degree yet this was not possible since women were not allowed to enroll at the University of Warsaw.
This made the trip to Gottingen a significant threat to his life. The Pells returned to Vermilion, South Dakota after the wedding. T... ... middle of paper ... ... an excellent teacher who inspired all of her students, even if they were undergraduates, with her huge love for mathematics. Aware of the difficulties of women being mathematicians, seven women under her direction received doctorates at Bryn Mawr. Anna took her students to mathematical meetings oftenly.
She pursued a higher level of education even though she was already two years younger than her classmates. She graduated at the age of sixteen with a gold medal. It was hard to pursue a university education because Poland at the time was being ruled by Russia, and Russia did not like the women to be educated. At the age of eighteen, Marie spent her time teaching peasant children illegally. Even though Marie was born of noble descent, her family had financial problems, so at the age of twenty-four, Marie decided to go to Paris to learn more about math and physics.
According to the plan, Maria would save her money for approximately two years, send the money to her sister Bronislawa and for her medical studies in Paris. After those two-three years, Maria would then attend a University for her to pursue a career in chemistry. In her Governess position, she fell in love with the eldest in the family, a college student, Kazimierz Zorawski. However, the family opposed their love for each other, Kazimierz listened to his family and rejected Maria. Despite the awkwardness within the family, Maria stayed until she fulfilled her commitment until late 1891.
She even bumped into the subject of trigonometry while studying elementary physics. She achieved all of this by the age of thirteen. At age 15 she had studied the topics of mathematics, literature, medicine, and physics. She wanted to excel mainly in literature and mathematics and pursue college career. But ever since 1863, Russian universities had been closed to women.
Her dad Max Noether was also a famous mathematician. She had an unproblematic time in her early years of school, being smarter than the majority of the kids at an adolescent age gave her an advantage. Emmy never married, even though her family significantly encouraged it. Since girls were not permitted to attend any college preparatory schools, she decided to go to a general finishing school. There she studied and became certified to teach English and French.
Mary Fairfax Somerville was born on December 26, 1780 into a wealthy family of a vice admiral in the British Navy. While growing up she recieved little formal education. The one year that she spent in a boarding school for girls in Musselburgh, she endured a life full of rules and because unhappy. Mary became interested in mathematics while reading a women's fashion magnize. She noticed symbols in the magazine that she had not noticed before and asked her brother's tutor about the symbols.
In 1891, however, Curie left Poland and enrolled in the Sorbonne, and graduated first in her undergraduate class in 1893, and in 1894 she earned a Master's Degree in mathematics. In the midst of her studies she fell in love and In July, 1895, Curie married fellow scientist Pierre Curie, and together they studied radioactive materials. They also managed to find time to start a family; in 1897 Curie gave birth to her first baby girl, Irene. Although she was now a mother, Curie managed to continue her scientific studies and schooling. Like her childhood, Marie's adult life was not without its tragedies as well.
Even though the Mitchell's weren't rich Maria's father, a devoted amateur( most astronomers of that time were amateurs) astronomer, introduced her to mathematics and the night sky. He also encouraged her toward teaching and passed on a sense of God as in the natural world. By the time Maria was sixteen, she was a teacher of mathematics at Cyrus Pierce's school for young ladies where she used to be a student. Following that she opened a grammar school of her own. And only a year after that, at the age of eighteen she was offered a job as a librarian at Nantucket's Atheneum during the day when it opened to the public in the fall of 1836.
On July 25 1920, Rosalind Elsie Franklin was born in London England. She excelled in school, especially chemistry and biology. At the age of 15, Franklin had decided to become a scientist even thought her father wanted her to be a social worker. (Maisel,1) Her father disapproved of a University Education for women and initially refused to pay for admission. (Maisel, 1) Eventually he agreed to pay for, but only after constant pressure from her mother and aunt.
