About this Blog

We are mathematicians. We are mothers. This blog is about how these two identities intersect (and sometimes collide) each and every day. Our stories, while colored by our individuality, have the common thread that both of these paths are demanding yet rewarding. We hope to challenge the traditional ideas of success in mathematics by sharing how we have defined success for ourselves both personally and professionally. By sharing our stories, we can empower others to pursue their life choices unapologetically while building a community of math mamas. As a part of this conversation, comments and questions from parents and non-parents are encouraged and welcomed.

If you are interested in sharing your story as a math mama, contact one of the blog editors for details.
