If you visit her account you must watch her video "Wipe it Down", to raise awareness about the correct disinfection and cleaning to prevent the spread of COVID, you will probably end up singing the song in your head the rest of the day.


The acronym for this account stands for “Great Women of Mathematics,” and as the name implies, it is an excellent place to access short biographies of remarkable women in the areas of mathematics and science.

Additionally, if math is your thing, and you love solving problems, every day they do the #dailymaths challenge, where you can test your knowledge and ability to solve problems, keeping your mind occupied for a few minutes or hours.
