Famous Men Vs. Famous Women

A topic that is debated constantly since the beginning of age, can a women do a man's job? Can a man do a women's job. Sure there are some things that men can't do and women can't do, but is it really impossible.

What Work Is a World Famous Mathematician?

This in some cases is a matter of opinion, but if we look at history our question will be answered. BOTH MEN AND WOMEN can be world famous mathematicians. I have seen both be very successful and very influential women in the math world.

So for me this is totally not a debate anymore.

Famous Lagrange mathematician

Talk about finishing school early, this famous mathematician was lecturing when he was nineteen years of age. Joseph Louis Lagrange was born in Italy, but was known as the Italian born French mathematician. He dealt with the area of Calculus and impressed many with his knowledge on the subject.

This world mathematician took over from Euler as the Director of Mathematics on November 6, 1766 but then moved on to the Paris Academy of Science where he stayed for the rest of his career.

"Before we take to sea we walk on land, Before we create we must understand.”
"When we ask advice, we are usually looking for an accomplice."

These are some of the famous quotes that Lagrange was known for as one of the world's famous mathematicians.
