I AM HOPELESS IN MATHS. WHEN I TOTAL A COLUMN OF FIGURES THREE TIMES, I GET THREE DIFFERENT ANSWERS. I SHOULD GET THE DISABEL PRIZE.

My Daughter is a Mathematician with,so far a Masters degree and still attending University. Women have good minds,if they can put aside emotions and "feelings" and concentrate on reality. The same applies to Men as well.

mathematics field is mostly dominated by males. Now soon time is going to come when females will find maths a charming and a rewarding subject. Uhlenbeck's achievement is going to motivate all women.

Women need this type of recognition more often. It isn't just a man's world any longer!

Amazing there's no other word for it. I have difficulty adding up 2 + 2 and I jest not as I once got 0 out of 100 in a maths exam!!
