It All Adds Up: Celebrating Women Across the Mathematical Sciences

"This year’s LMS 150th Anniversary Women in Mathematics Day – It All Adds Up 2015  – took place at the University of Oxford’s Mathematical Institute from 14 - 17 April." according to London Mathematical Society.

The first day was aimed at female school students in Years 9, 10 and 11, and the second day for Years 12 and 13 who are studying A-level Further Mathematics or an equivalent. The third and fourth days were aimed at university mathematicians and mathematical scientists at all stages of their careers (undergraduate to professor). Over 650 delegates attended in total.

It All Adds Up 2015 was co-organised by the London Mathematical Society’s Women in Mathematics Committee, which is committed to actively addressing the issues facing women in mathematics. It is concerned about the loss of women from mathematics, particularly at the higher levels of research and teaching, and at the disadvantages and missed opportunities that this represents for the advancement of mathematics.

As the London Mathematical Society celebrates its 150th anniversary, we look back at some of the key moments and players that helped shape and influence mathematics, including Mary Cartwright, the first female mathematician who founded the chaos theory, and twice president GH Hardy who aptly named his cricket team ‘Hardy’s Mathematicals’.
