    DescriptionIn the 1960’s, Cheryl Praeger wasn’t expected to become a mathematician, but she has never been greatly bothered by expectations. At a time when women were expected to stay at home and raise a family she was discouraged from studying mathematics. With her passion, aptitude and a good deal hard work Cheryl became a leading light in mathematics.
