Told in with illustrations and catchy rhyme, The Girl with a Mind for Math: The Story of Raye Montague is the story of the hidden mastermind engineer who made waves in the U.S. Navy.
After touring a German submarine in the early 1940s, young Raye set her sights on becoming an engineer. Little did she know sexism and racial inequality would challenge that dream every step of the way, even keeping her greatest career accomplishment a secret for decades. Through it all, the gifted mathematician persisted — finally gaining her well-deserved title in history: an engineering pioneer who changed the course of ship design forever.
In addition to the illustrated rhyming tale of Raye Montague, you'll find a complete biography, fun facts, a colourful timeline of events, and even a note from Raye herself.
Recommended for ages five and over.
