From School Library Journal:

Grade 6 Up–Each of these volumes covers the lives and contributions of 10 mathematicians arranged chronologically. Short biography are followed by in-depth explanations of their contributions to the field and a brief conclusion. Each entry also includes a bibliography and Web sites specific to the subject. Black-and-white reproductions, diagrams and equations, drawings, reproductions of documents, and a specialized glossary aid in understanding. Volumes include both well- and lesser known individuals from Pythagoras and Hypatia to Omar Khayyám, and John von Neumann. Tucker McElroy's A to Z of Mathematicians (Facts On File, 2005) includes 150 mathematicians but without the depth of coverage found here. Leonard C. Bruno's Math & Mathematicians (Gale, 1999) contains the biographies of 50 mathematicians and 35 articles describing mathematical principles and concepts. The Pioneers in Mathematics series contains fewer individuals but gives ample information for reports.–Ann Joslin, Fort LeBoef School District, Waterford, PA

Book Description Facts on File Inc, United States, 2006. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. From 700 BCE to CE 1300, thousands of scholars from many different civilizations introduced mathematical ideas that established the foundations of arithmetic, number theory, algebra, geometry, and trigonometry, as well as the related sciences of astronomy and physics. Although we know very little about specific individuals who made important mathematical discoveries in Babylonia, Egypt, and China, historians in Greece, India, Arabia, and medieval Italy preserved a more complete record, including the identities of some of the innovators. The Birth of Mathematics profiles 10 individuals from these four cultures during this time period as representatives of the numerous scholars who contributed to the field of mathematics.
