### UPDATE: The Mathematician List is now an awesome table. Check it out and thank John Stevens and Jedidiah Butler. I’ll continue to update and improve it.

Here is the presentation from NCTM Regionals in Chicago

# What is the Mathematicians Project?

The Short Version:

- We as math teachers tend to only talk about white male mathematicians.
- Most of my students don’t look like that, and thus, they have few mathematical role models they can identify with.
- Take 10-15 minutes a week to research (read Wikipedia, that’s all you need) a not-old-dead-white-dude mathematician, and then take 5 minutes in class to tell your students about them. Include a picture. It’s worth it, I swear.
