Children can test their math skills and learn the Pythagorean Theorem alongside young Pythagoras in this STEM adventure.  Pythagoras’ curiosity takes him from Samos to Alexandria, where he meets a builder named Neferheperhersekeper, who introduces him to the right angle. While building, Pythagoras uses geometry to learn how to measure angles and discovers all he needs to know about right triangles. With playful puns and wordplay Ellis creates the perfect STEM/STEAM resource for introducing young readers to a fundamental mathematical equation. A fun and accessible way to get young minds asking “what’s your angle?”.

About the Author:

Julie Ellis is the author of many books for children, including PYTHAGORAS AND THE RATIOS. She wrote WHAT'S YOUR ANGLE, PYTHAGORAS? to show her daughter the uses of the Pythagorean Theorem. Julie lives in New Zealand.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 3-5–A fictionalized look (in spite of the CIP designation) at Pythagoras as he discovers his famous theorem. He is depicted as a curious boy who travels with his father from Samos to Alexandria, where he meets a builder named Neferheperhersekeper, who introduces him to the right angle. He begins to experiment, observing and noting the fixed and unvarying mathematical nature of triangles–right triangles, to be precise. The cartoon illustrations capture the dress, homes, and sailing ships in a warm and clear palette. Ellis includes delightful puns for those who are keen on wordplay. Sticklers be warned: there is lots of dialogue, but in the context of the story, it works well and helps to explain the math. This clear and interesting explanation of the theorem is a wonderful read.–Jennifer England, The Berkeley Carroll School, Brooklyn, NY
