This biography details the life of mathematician Maria Gaetana Agnesi (1718-1799), the first woman to publish a mathematics book, Instituzioni analitiche, an early treatise on calculus from 1748, also known for her Christian virtue and charitable activities through her devotion to the poor and sick of Milan, Italy.
Aos vinte anos, Agnesi publicou uma coletanea de 190 ensaios intitulados Propositones Philosophicae\ onde relatava sobre elasticidade, mecanica, hidromecanica, mecanica celeste, gravitacao, quimica, botanica, zoologia e mineralogia, alem de defender mais uma vez a educacao superior para mulheres.
Maria Agnesi lived in the century following Newton and Leibniz, the age when progress in mathematics was being made at a rapid pace.
