Sophisticated, complex, and numerous, rhetorical figures from antimetabole to zeugma have been rich resources for communication, literature and argumentation for over two millennia.
Rooted in the boundary area between mathematics and computer science, computer algebra has evolved as a lively independent discipline and significantly influenced the research in many scientific fields.

Early one morning in the spring of 2013, my daughter called home from college announcing she intended to drop her computer science major. “I’m really bad at it,” she says. “I’m the worst in the class; I don’t fit in.” Her confidence was shaken by being one of just two women in a class of 25, and by not having the resources to support her. After taking 3 computer science classes, she drops the CS major. Turns out she was earning a B.
