The Eighth Annual Sonia Kovalevsky Day will be held on Saturday, March 7th, 2020. Math Girls do ROCK: Research Opportunities that are Creative and Kinetic!
Sonia Kovalevsky was the first major Russian female mathematician, the first woman appointed to a full professorship in Northern Europe, and one of the first women to work as an editor for a scientific journal. University of Wisconsin Eau Claire Mathematics Department is proud to host Sonia Kovalevksy High School Mathematics Day each year in her honor.
This project aims to expose middle school and high school young women to opportunities available in Math and Science by creating fun and exciting experiences through workshops, plenary talks, panel discussions, and a math competition. The teachers and sponsors are invited to attend our day of activities and participate in teacher workshops. We aim to create a network between the young women and teacher/sponsor participants, the UW-Eau Claire Mathematics department, and our guest speakers. We hope to ignite a passion for Math and Science within our participants and to develop lasting relationships that will aid these young women in their transitions from high school to college.
We would like to thank the following sponsors for helping us make Sonia Kovalevsky High School and Middle School Mathematics Day possible:
- The Provost's Office
- UW-Eau Claire Foundation
- UW-Eau Claire Math Department
- Office of Research and Sponsored Programs, UW-Eau Claire
