Maria Gaetana Agnesi was an Italian mathematician and philosopher from 16 May 1718 – 9 January 1799, she died in 1799, but her works is still alive and practicable, she was the first woman and mortician who wrote the first book even with discussions on differential and integral calculus and was an honorary member of the faculty at the University of Bologna.
Maria Gaetana Agnesi devoted the last four decades of her life to studying theology and to charitable work and serving the poor and she set up a hospital in her own home where anyone was welcome and can get medical and other helps without any charge.

Google’s doodle on Friday celebrated the 296th birthday of Maria Gaetana Agnesi, the Italian mathematician and philosopher and she believed to be the first woman in the west to gain recognition as a mathematician at that time of darkness and illiteracy, at that time, most Europeans was unhappy for education for women and they were totally against of woman education and at that time she did not only proved that she exist, but she is better than all of them and that was pretty impressive at that time of era.
Maria Gaetana Agnesi was born and raised into a wealthy and literate Milanese family and she always had pretty strong opinion about things at that time too and she was famous as a child prodigy and became interested in mathematics in her life , even at the age of 11 and 12 she use to composed and delivered an hour-long speech in Latin to some of the most distinguished intellectuals of the time on the subject of women’s right to be educated and she was very storing for her rights and rights of woman knowledge , she was able to speak seven languages including French, Hebrew and Greek in her early age, and at her 11th birthday, she was able to prove many famous mathematicians of the time, wrong and her proud father use to host parties where she could display her knowledge and he was one of the main reason of Maria Gaetana Agnesi’s success and education.
At very young age she lost her mother, Agnesi and she was the eldest of 21 siblings so she had to took over management of the household and was charged with educating her brothers and sisters too and she did brilliant job even though it took a great deal of her time and energy, but she never quit her own study and mathematics and she was the role model of the time for woman who wanted to study.
She wrote her first boon during 17s, but the first Uses of Agnesi’s findings are only being fully recognized in the late 20th and early 21st centuries, with physicists and mathematicians working with x-rays, optical lines and electrical circuits, she was born with tremendously strong IQ Level and she used every bit of it.
Maria Gaetana Agnesi was a role model and she still rocks.
