Almost there!

January 31, 2019

Thank you to all who have donated thus far! We are less than 10% away from our goal!


We truly could not have done it without you and we appreciate all of your generous contributions to AWM. Your donations will allow AWM to hold informative events for women in math and those who support women in math. 


If you are interested, there is still time to donate before the fundraiser ends at the end of the day January 31, 2019. 


Thank you for your support.

First Event of the Semester: Screening of Hidden Figures

January 23, 2019

AWM Presents: Hidden Figures


AWM is holding our first community event of the semester. We will be hosting a screening of the three-time Oscar-nominated movie Hidden Figures on Monday, January 28th at 5:30 pm in Cockins Hall room 240.


Hidden Figures is about a team of African American women mathematicians including Katherine Johnson, who mastered complex manual calculations of orbital mechanics as a NASA employee. Her contributions were critical to the success of the first and subsequent U.S. manned spaceflights. 


All are invited and welcome to join!



Halfway There!

January 21, 2019

We are a little more than halfway to our fundraising goal! Thank you so much to all who have donated thus far!


Almost all of our AWM members are pursuing a four-year math degree here at The Ohio State University. This means they will take over 40 credit hours of math courses alone. Their classes will range from real analysis to abstract algebra but all of them will have one thing in common: textbooks. Many courses will require a student to buy a specific edition of a textbook and these costs can easily add up. Pictured below is a subset of the textbooks purchased by a senior member of our organization, the cost of which was approximately $1,000. Through this funder, we hope to use some portion of the money raised to subsidize the cost of books for our members.


Thank you for your continued support.


First Meeting of the Semester!

January 14, 2019

Hi everyone!


We are about a third of the way to our goal- thank you for all your donations so far!


Today the Executive Board gathered for our first meeting of the semester. We caught up after the long winter break and started planning our events for the semester. We are looking forward to putting on meaningful events for the Ohio State math community, especially the Integral Bowl on March 4th!



Choose a giving level


Base 10

Base 10 refers to the numbering system in common use around the world, that uses decimal numbers. It consists of (in the following order) thousands, hundreds, tens, ones, decimal point, tenths, hundredths, thousandths, ten-thousandths, etc. A donation of $10 represents this important system!


Pi (π)

Understanding pi (π) is as easy as counting to one, two, 3.1415926535… As an irrational and transcendental number, it will continue infinitely without repetition or pattern. In fact, $31.42 is a rounded multiple of pi (π) and a donation of this amount will help AWM fund our annual Pi Day, held on March 14th!



The Association for Women in Mathematics was established in 1971! A donation of $71 will help with the operational costs of our club and also allow us to put on fun and informative events for our members.


Katherine Johnson

Katherine Johnson is an African-American mathematician who mastered complex manual calculations of orbital mechanics as a NASA employee. Her contributions were critical to the success of the first and subsequent U.S. manned spaceflights. She has received over 150 awards and her story was depicted in the three-time Oscar-nominated movie Hidden Figures.



The typical cost of a current-edition mathematics textbook at OSU is $220. A donation of this amount covers the cost of one textbook for an AWM member.


Emmy Noether

In 1935 Emmy Noether was called "the most significant creative mathematical genius thus far" by Albert Einstein. She overcame many hurdles to develop the mathematical foundations for Einstein's general theory of relativity and made significant advances in the field of algebra.


Integral Bowl

AWM currently has more than 500 members (women and men) representing a broad spectrum of the mathematical community – from the United States and around the world. Not only this, but a donation of $500 will help AWM to fund our Integral Bowl event – it's like a spelling bee, but with integrals!
