Inhaltsangabe: Compilation of fifty biographies of mathematicians from throughout history and approximately thirty-five articles describing math concepts and principles.
From School Library Journal:
Gr 6-10-Finding enough information on mathematicians can be problematic. This set goes a long way toward filling requests for material on the subject. Galileo, Isaac Newton, Ren Descartes, and Pythagoras of Samos are here as is a host of lesser-known individuals such as Maria Agnesi, Nikolay Lobachevsky, and Srinivasa Ramanujan. Concepts such as "Pi" and "Prime number" are given extensive coverage. The writing is clear and accessible, and the biographies are often interesting. Every article includes a short list for further reading. Boxed sidebars and quotes are scattered throughout. Each volume opens with a useful table of contents, a list of "Entries by Mathematical Field" ("Logic," "Number theory," "Statistics," etc.), a chronology, and a glossary, and concludes with a "Selected Bibliography" (with Web sites) and a complete index. Illustrations are limited to black-and-white portraits of the mathematicians. While not as comprehensive as the Biographical Encyclopedia of Mathematicians, (Marshall Cavendish, 1999), this resource serves a slightly younger audience.-Jo-Anne Weinberg, Greenburgh Public Library, NY
