This activity was originally created for a Women in Mathematics course to provide students (who may not yet have taken much upper level mathematics) with a small taste of some basic mathematics connected to the work of Maryam Mirzakhani. In this activity, students investigate some Riemann surfaces and one non-example. The activity could also be used in other courses, such as a general education mathematics course, a course for pre-service elementary teachers, or a history of mathematics course.
