(6th-8th Grade) "Love Your Hair" Full Size Box (featuring Dr. Gloria F. Gilmer)

Our “Love Your Hair” hair & math box features the story of amazing mathematics pioneer, Dr. Gloria Gilmer (1926-2021).

Black hair is rooted in black history. From braids to locs, presses to perms, Madam CJ Walker to India.Arie, black hair in America is beautiful, diverse, and, sadly, sometimes controversial. In this box, we’re breaking down the math that naturally exists in all things hair (like hair braiding or running your own salon)! Here’s what’s inside your Love Your Hair Box

  • Meet Dr. Gloria F. Gilmer: Check out our exclusive interview with Dr. Gloria F. Gilmer, mathematician, mathematics educator, consultant, and the founding president of the International Study Group on Ethnomathematics. Dr. Gloria F. Gilmer pioneered studying the mathematics of hair braiding!
  • Love Your Hair Math Activity Workbook: This workbook, created by the Black Girl MATHgic team, is filled with your hair + math activities for this month! Make sure you work on the problems – this is how you build math confidence and get better at math!
    Bad Hair Day book: Gabby McGee is a 12-year-old girl trying to shed her “bad hair,” her parent’s strict rules, and her insecurities—all at the same time. If only she could change her hair from nappy, kinky, and unruly, to straight, long, and flowing, she could finally fit in. But she soon learns that going behind her mother’s back to get a chemical hair relaxer isn’t the way to do it. After a failed trip to the hair salon leaves her in debt, she devises a hair-brained scheme to pay it off, which involves her crush, a French kiss, and a bake-off. Is it just crazy enough to work? Is changing her hair really what she wants? Or, could the money troubles of a classmate at her snooty private school cause her to change her attitude instead?
  • Tessellations Print by DocR0cketArt: Tessellations is one of a set of four artworks that pay tribute to groundbreaking contributions made by African American women in science. Doc R0cket created this art especially to honor Dr. Gloria F. Gilmer, so we knew we HAD to include it in this month’s box!
  • Glister Paradise Detangling Wide-Tooth Comb: A wash day essential! GLISTER brings you this cute, new, colorful, portable, and glittery detangling little friend, specially designed for all hair types because all GLISTER girls need some hair-care days to keep rocking those unique hairstyles. (the comb replaces the hair spray in the photo)
  • Custom Black Girl MATHgic Love Your Hair stickers: Special stickers created just for you to go with our Love Your Hair theme! Which one is your favorite?
  • “Having math confidence never goes out of style!” Math Affirmation: Since we’re talking about hair and hairstyles in this month’s box, we had to call out what NEVER goes out of style – and that’s having math confidence!
