    Maria Gaetana Agnesi (1718-1799)
    She is considered one of the greatest woman scholars. She wrote the first mathematics book by a woman and became the first woman appointed to teach mathematics at a university.

    Girolamo Cardano (1501-1576)
    Even though I was a famed physician I am probably best known for my work in mathematics. In 1545 I published the book Ars Magna (The Rules of Algebra), which contained solutions to cubic and quartic equations.

    Bruno de Finetti (1906-1985)
    A probabilist and statistician most noted for his "operational subjective" conception of probability and for the De Finetti's theorem on exchangeable sequences of random variables.

    Leonardo Pisano Fibonacci (1170-1250)
    He is considered the greatest mathematician of the middle ages. He is best known for the creation of the Fibonacci numbers.

    Guido Fubini (1879-1943)
    His primary focus was on mathematical analysis, especially differential equations, functional analysis, and complex analysis.

    Niccolo Fontana Tartaglia (1499 or 1500-1557)
    He was the first to apply mathematics to the investigation of the paths of cannonballs and he gave us the formula for the volume of a tetrahedron.
