Maria Gaetana Agnesi was an Italian polymath with a heart of gold. Born into a wealthy Milanese family, Agnesi's brilliance was used to entertain family friends and visitors from an early age. She was a child prodigy, speaking 7 languages by the age of 10 and delivering speeches in Latin about the education of women to her father's circle of academics and intellectuals. As the eldest of 21 children, Agnesi was tasked with teaching the others, a responsibility that inspired this book. Finding mathematical textbooks insufficient, Agnesi originally began writing this text for her siblings.
