Natalie Portman Graces The Cover Of Scholastic Math

natalie-portman-scholastic.jpgThis month’s Scholastic Math Magazine features the always purdy Natalie Portman as its cover girl.

A refreshing antidote to all those Jessicas, Portman promotes the wonders of — get this, girls — thinking!

“Sure, you need to use math daily for knowing how much tip to leave at a restaurant or how much flour you need to make double the amount of cookies in a recipe, but it is the less obviously practical parts of math that are most fun for me — like considering the principles of infinity. It made me excited about life to consider the limitlessness of the mind and what we can do with it.”
