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. Although mathematical innovation stagnated in Europe after the fall of the Roman Empire, scholars in southern Asia and the Middle East continued to preserve the mathematical writings of the Greeks and contributed new ideas to arithmetic, algebra, geometry, and trigonometry, as well as astronomy and physics. The five centuries from CE 1300 to 1800 marked the end of a rich period of cultural, mathematical, and scientific advancements in China, India, and Arabic countries, while witnessing new intellectual life in Europe and the Western Hemisphere. The Age of Genius acquaints middle and high school students with the lives and contributions of 10 intriguing but perhaps lesser-known mathematical pioneers of this time. Included here, for example, is a portrait of 14th-century Iranian mathematician Ghiyath al-Din Jamshid Mas ud al-Kashi, who developed and improved methods for approximating numerical values, and introduced geometrical methods for determining areas and volumes of architectural domes, arches, and vaults.
