**The only way to learn mathematics is to do mathematics. It is not a spectator sport and you must try as many exercises as possible to understand and digest mathematics. Enjoy your journey through this web site and good luck!**

#### Women in mathematics

Mathematics is obviously something that women should be able to do very well. It's very intuitive. You don't need a lot of machinery, and you don't need a lot physical strength. You just need stamina, and women often have a great deal of stamina.

*Mary Ellen Rudin (1924 to 2013)*

Sometimes when you work though an example, you suddenly get an insight which you wouldn’t have got if you’d just been working abstractly with the hypothesis of your future theorem. I guess both of these are obvious pieces of advice, but they are ignored more often than they should be … if the problem is worthwhile, give it a good try. Take months, maybe years if necessary, before announcing to the world, “This is as far as I can go. I’m quitting.” It is disgraceful to give up before you have given it a good college try.

*Irving Kaplansky (1917 to 2006)*
