Unfortunate Anachronisms Dec 22 2004
By Jolene Gleason - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is generally a good book about the Pythagorean Theorem. I was disappointed, however, that someone did not catch the gross anachronisms before publication. In the book young Pythagorus travels to Alexandria, Egypt. However, Pythagoras was born (as the book points out) around 569 BC. This predates Alexander the Great by more than 200 years. Of course Alexandria would not have existed before Alexander the Great. Also as Pythagoras' ship approaches Alexandria, you can see the great lighthouse, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, in the background. The lighthouse wasn't built, however until around 271 BC - even after Alexander's death. I know it's just a fictional children's book, but come on. Our children deserve a little better research.

Easy To Understand May 22 2008
By M. Bensh - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this book to read to my 6th grade math class. We had been working on perimeter and area and I was trying to explain the Pythagorean Theorem to them as an introduction to what they would see in 7th grade. Only the "math" minds were really able to get the concept, until I read them the book. The book goes into great detail using fantastic visuals that link well to the story. The kids loved it and many more said they were now able to understand the formula. I'm even planning on showing it to my 8th grade coworker - they were having trouble understanding it as well.

Pythagoras made easy! Aug. 8 2004
By T Love - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is probably the most enjoyable way I have come across to teach Pythagorean Theorem to my children. It's one of those special books which children will read without realising they are learning a mathematical concept. Highly recommended to teachers and parents grappling with this sometimes difficult topic!

A Fun Way to Introduce Math Sept. 13 2008
By P. Kathleen Calkins - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
What's Your Angle, Pathagoras? is a great way to get students ready for math on a day when you aren't going to start with a computation drill. It is a pleasant, easy read and it not only explains the Pythagorean Theorem in easy to understand language and with pictures, but it also can be the starter to a discussion about possible careers in math. 'Tis a great book for students 3rd - 6th grade.

it's a fun read Nov. 17 2007
By C. Hamilton - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I teach high school math and read this book before vacation when the kids aren't keen on "doing math". They LOVE it, especially since they've been using the pythagorean theorem for years.
