A MATHEMATICIAN, A PHILOSOPHER OR A WITCH?

Maria Gaetana Agnesi was a mathematician, a philosopher and by age nine, a prodigy. She fell ill at age twelve, doctors prescribed her dancing and horseback riding; this didn’t work, so she wrote the first book to discuss both differential and integral calculus.
 
Wish Maria a happy 296 birthday on 16 May
