I will be starting a series of Math Memoirs from people who have submitted them to me via Social Media, email, and students, former and current, who have given me permission. I have students write their math memoir in my classes to start school so I can get a feel for a student's math identity. Write about your math experience. Start with your first memory learning math (my mom used to play card games like Crazy 8's, Memory, and Rummy with my brother and I) and continue up through today. How did your experiences with math mold how you feel about math and your math abilities to this day? Here is my math memoir. Stay tuned for others from around the world!

What started on my personal FB to teach my friends about mathematicians as a distraction from the unknown of COVID school 2.0, a.k.a. 2020-2021 School Year, has turned ONE! In that year, I have been able to not only teach my friends about mathematicians but to help inspire teachers around the world think about how mathematics is represented to all students so they can see themselves as "Math People." I have also got to talk to many cool folks on IG from around the world who just LOVE math like I do. People who are inspired to see mathematicians aren't all young savants from wealthy European families during the Enlightenment... they are old, young, gay, straight, black, brown, good at school, the bad kid in school... they are just people. We have grown to be 1000 followers strong (ok, 999 as I type but still give me this). There have been 357 posts celebrating mathematicians throughout history, as well as honoring #pride, #aapiheritagemonth, #blackhistorymonth, #womenhisto

Mathematicians are often touted as the smartest people on the planet but then you hear about the best and brightest winning the Nobel Prize in Physics, Chemistry, Literature, Medicine, Economics... Peace... but not MATHEMATICS. I haven't really thought too much about it until I started to research for this post. I knew Mathematicians had their own awards and just left it at that. Well, let's take a look at what was up with Alfred Nobel and then talk about the biggest math prizes. Source: Wikipedia Alfred Nobel Born Alfred Bernhard Nobel 21 October 1833 Stockholm , Sweden Died 10 December 1896 (aged 63) Sanremo , Italy Nobel was a Swedish chemist and inventor. He holds 355 patents with dynamite being the most well known. After being criticized for making a fortune off of the production of armaments, he decided to leave his fortune to the Nobel Prize Institute to change his legacy. His last will and testament set aside monies to establish the Nobel Prizes. These prizes were to be
