From the Higgins Trading Card Company, Inc.Students, Professional athletes have had their faces and statistics on trading cards for many years. It
is now time for the famous mathematicians to now showcase their celebrity. You are going to create a trading card that shows the mathematician's "vital statistics" and interesting biographical accomplishments. Here are some example baseball cards:
Notes about this project:
 You should try and get a colored picture for the mathematician. I know this isn't always possible.
 Try your best to present the ACTUAL MATH in a presentable format. I realize that some of these mathematicians are famous because of some largely complex theorem; however, attempt some of the ACTUAL MATH for the mathematician.
 Many of the older mathematicians have legendary stories that go along with them. Please make sure you find a way to incorporate those stories.
 Try and be as COLORFUL as possible.
 If your mathematician has any famous or impactful quotes to share, please add that to your trading card.
 If possible, find a way to incorporate humor.
 EXTRA CREDIT: If you have something to share with the group regarding your mathematician and find a way to present it in an entertaining way. ESPECIALLY if it is a funny or entertaining video of some kind.
Many of these mathematician have been mentioned on shows like Numb3rs.  HAVE FUN! :)
Notes about this project: This assignment is meant to be done on the computer using any program of your choice. You could use WORD, PUBLISHER, POWERPOINT, IMAGE EDITOR, or anything else that makes sense to you.
 FRONT of the trading card must contain full name, picture, and years lived. Think of the front of the card as the front of magazine. You are allowed to make reference to what is on the back; however, the full information should be on the back.
 BACK of the trading card should contain a synopsis of the mathematicians full biographical information. You should make mention of all MAJOR WORKS of the mathematician.
 PLEASE, if at all possible, incorporate as much understandable math as possible.
 What is to be turned in?
 The file should be emailed to me in a format such as POWERPOINT, WORD, PUBLISHER, PICTURE FILE, OR PDF.
 The file also needs to be printed out in COLOR. Two 8 1/2 x 11 pieces of paper.
 A separate paper that should printed containing the following information:
 Your Name
 Mathematician's Name
 Links to all websites you found to be useful
 How long did this assignment take you to complete?
 Did you enjoy the assignment? Why or why not?
 Suggestions to make the assignment better?
 Mention of anything specific that makes this mathematician really interesting. You could reference anything related to the math or biographical information.
