Elizabeth Hamman was a great math educator who will be truly missed in the International math community. She passed away very suddenly last week, at the age of 39, after suddenly developing a problem with blood clots in her lungs, which led to a bleed in her brain. Elizabeth started writing a blog last year, called Mathfaery: Making Math Magical and was known as @mathfaery on twitter.

Elizabeth was a participant in the 2009 MCC Math & Technology Workshop, and was going to attend this year as the Assistant Director for the workshop. Her absence at this year’s workshop will leave a hole in our hearts.

If you knew Elizabeth on twitter, read her blog, met her at a workshop or presentation, or were touched by her in some way, please consider making a contribution to The Elizabeth Hamman Math Scholarship at Cerritos College.
