Nothing Stopped Sophie: The Story of Unshakable Mathematician Sophie Germain
Author

ISBN
9780316278201
The true story of eighteenth-century mathematician Sophie Germain, who solved the unsolvable to achieve her dream. When her parents took away her candles to keep their young daughter from studying math...nothing stopped Sophie. When a professor discovered that the homework sent to him under a male pen name came from a woman...nothing stopped Sophie. And when she tackled a math problem that male scholars said would be impossible to solve...still, nothing stopped Sophie. For six years Sophie Germain used her love of math and her undeniable determination to test equations that would predict patterns of vibrations. She eventually became the first woman to win a grand prize from France's prestigious Academy of Sciences for her formula, which laid the groundwork for much of modern architecture (and can be seen in the book's illustrations). Award-winning author Cheryl Bardoe's inspiring and poetic text is brought to life by acclaimed artist Barbara McClintock's intricate pen-and-ink, watercolor, and collage illustrations in this true story about a woman who let nothing stop her.Binding Type: HardcoverAuthor: Cheryl BardoePublisher: Little, Brown Books for Young ReadersPublished: 06/12/2018ISBN: 9780316278201Pages: 40Weight: 1.05lbsSize: 10.30h x 10.20w x 0.40dReview Citations: Bulletin of Ctr for Child Bks 05/01/2018Booklist 03/01/2018 pg. 42School Library Journal 03/01/2018 pg. 133Kirkus Reviews 04/01/2018Horn Book Magazine 07/01/2018 pg. 128Publishers Weekly 07/09/2018Hornbook Guide to Children 07/01/2018 pg. 189 - Superior,Well Above AverageAccelerated Reader Quiz #/Name: 195301 / Nothing Stopped Sophie: A Story of Unshakable Mathematician Sophie GermainReading Level: 5.3 / Interest Level: Lower Grade / Point Value: 0.5
