Maria Gaetana Agnesi (1718-1799) was one of 24 children born to a mathematics professor in Bologna. She was a prodigy, speaking at least six languages by age 11. Later interests included geometry and ballistics. Encouraged by her father, she spoke at public debates. She devoted herself to mathematics and, in 1748, published a widely praised book on analytical mathematics. In 1750, she was appointed professor of mathematics and philosophy at Bologna University. #STEM #inspirationalwomen
