Dear "you", who decided using a bit of your very precious "your-time" to read this post,I'm glad to see the "Math Support Gals" group sister site, http://www.mathsupportgals.org, growing a bit day after day as a plantlet developing little leaves and roots, and searching their way.
(My gladness is, I admit, a bit self-incensing: as a group member I have some part in the site construction. Hope you will forgive me!)
But attention goes on once again to the little herb who, I hope in admiration, will be a huge tree sometimes.
Will this tiny green thing be useful, right in her vegetable-infancy? I wish, I wish!
Some of the leaves may be of interest already now.
One of them deals with "the real world". That is, application of mathematics and physics to daily hard problems, like protecting the environment.
One other leave (which I personally love so much) deals with experiences exciting people had on mathematics. We may be "arrived people" now, but there was time in which we were children, when we had to make important choices, and discovered so many things of so great later importance.
One other leaf (or better: just a gem to date) is (no, no, "will" - with a great deal of help by you) giving an account of talents girls already have in mathematics, physics and sciences, maybe without knowing, maybe being pressured meanwhile to forget them and follow some other, "conventional" development trail.
These are just three leaves - of the roots I haven't said.
I'd love getting your comments, if you have a bit of time to check the sister site.
In hope this cub-of-tree will be useful to girls, their parents, and teachers.
