Living Proof: Stories of Resilience Along the Mathematical Journey

For some, the thought of calculating derivatives or identifying isosceles triangles brings on a surge of joy, for others, a surge of dread. Regardless of whether or not you identify as a "math person," Living Proof: Stories of Resilience Along the Mathematical Journey is on a mission to disprove such labels, suggesting that "mathematical thinking is a fundamental part of every human's intellectual capacity." The book was published in 2019 by the American Mathematical Society and the Mathematical Association of America and is accessible in downloadable PDF form at the link above. Living Proof exists to showcase that "the ability to succeed in a mathematical program should not be hindered by a person's gender, race, sexuality, upbringing, culture, socio-economic status, educational background, or any other attribute." Throughout its four sections, professors, field consultants, and mathematicians share stories of success and struggle, with the hope of both celebrating and continuing to cultivate diversity in the field. They also provide insights on the wide range of mathematical careers available. The book was edited by Allison K. Henrich (Seattle University), Emille D. Lawrence (University of San Francisco), Matthew A. Pons (North Central College), and David G. Taylor (Roanoke College).
