The MAA is now taking orders for its two new posters, Women of Mathematics and Ethnomathematics. Women of Mathematics was originated by Stan Burris as a counterpoint to IBM’s well-known, but now rather rare, Men of Mathematics poster. This poster was funded by the MAA and Sun Microsystems and has been distributed to mathematics departments across the country.
Ethnomathematics: Exploring the Role of Mathematical Thought in Traditional and Indigenous Societies was created by Amy Shell-Gellasch as part of the History of Mathematics SIGMAA’s sessions on ethnomathematics at the 2008 Joint Mathematics Meetings. The Ethnomathematics poster was funded by HOMSIGMAA and the MAA for distribution to all MAA members.
Both posters are available from the MAA while supplies last for a $10.00 postage and handling fee per poster. All orders must be prepaid and VISA, Mastercard, check, or money orders are accepted.
