cover shot of Mathematician cards doc

Want to learn about individuals who have shaped mathematics and helped to develop some of the technology, tools, and toys we enjoy today? This set of mathematician profile cards includes 19 biographies of important mathematicians from around the world. These are used in a card matching activity where participants are given clues about the lives and discoveries of other mathematicians in the room. It's a great way to show students where math appears beyond the classroom or a test and also highlights the contributions of a diverse population of individuals not typically learned about in our history books.

If you like the mathematician profile cards, Amplify also has profile cards for science (available in English and Spanish). Create a free profile on the Amplify site to receive digital downloads of these free resources.
