Product Description

From School Library Journal

Grade 2-4 - Hopper was one of only seven women to earn a Ph.D. from Yale between 1934 and 1937. She taught math at Vassar, and during World War II became a junior naval officer at 36 and worked on the Mark I computer, an early "giant calculator" that would change her life and lead to her work on the first electrical computer. She is described as a curious, ambitious, and thoughtful woman who cared a great deal about education and sharing knowledge with others. Black-and-white and full-color photographs appear on every spread, and the technical language is kept to a minimum. This kind of biography is important as a resource for students to understand the historical context of technology. An accessible and inspiring introduction to a computer pioneer. - Holly T. Sneeringer, University of Maryland, Baltimore County

HASH(0xb6e9f3d8) out of 5 stars Inspire your daughter to study math Aug. 27 2005

Format: Library Binding Verified Purchase
My eight-year-old daughter and I read this book together, and we loved it. If you are disturbed that Larry Summers of Harvard thinks women can't do math, reading about Grace Hopper will calm you down. Not only was she a math and computer genius, but she was also a high-ranking naval officer who served well past the normal retirement age. "Grace Hopper: Computer Whiz" should be an inspiration to both girls and boys, and this book can also inspire parents to read the recent adult biography of Grace Hopper.
