Grades K-3. As a young girl, Margaret Hamilton loved numbers and knew how many miles it was to the moon. She loved studying algebra, geometry, and calculus, as well as using math to solve problems in the outside world. Her love of math led her to MIT, and ultimately to helping NASA put a man on the moon by handwriting code that allowed the spacecrafts computer to solve any problems it might encounter. The Apollo 11 mission (and the ones preceding it) could never have happened without her code. 40 pages. Hardcover.
