History


SK
AUM's Sonia Kovalevsky (SK) Day is a one day program for young women who are enrolled in Algebra I or higher. The Department of Mathematics here at AUM hosted its first SK Day back in February 2004. Since that time, AUM has hosted a total of seven SK Day events. Similar events have been presented across the country with partial funding through grants from the Association for Women in Mathematics (AWM), the National Security Agency (NSA), and various universities. This program has always been strongly supported by AUM administration and has opened up opportunities for young women by having them actively learn about various mathematics topics, hear from a respected female mathematician, and learn about numerous math related careers through a career panel. Sonia Kovalevsky is credited as the first female to be awarded a doctorate in mathematics.
