3 Things to know about Hypatia Math Genius
Did you know that once a very long time ago lived a woman so brilliant that when she died it was said that it was also the decline of Alexandria as a center of learning?
This amazing woman was named Hypatia and she lived in Alexandria from 370-415 AD.
1. Hypatia was a teacher of Math, Science, Philosophy, and Astronomy.
2. She was the head of the Platonism School. As a woman! At a time where women were not likely to even be found as students in a school!
3. Her father was a mathematician.
To this day she so respected that she appears both time in the Comos (a favorite show in my home).
