Pythagorean Theorem - Crown Jewel of MathematicsRatings:

(1)|Views: 340|Likes: 1Published by Mark

The Pythagorean Theorem has been with us for over 4000

years and has never ceased to yield its bounty to mathematicians,

scientists, and engineers. Amateurs love it in that most new proofs

are discovered by amateurs. Without the Pythagorean Theorem,

none of the following is possible: radio, cell phone, television,

internet, flight, pistons, cyclic motion of all sorts, surveying and

associated infrastructure development, and interstellar

measurement. The Pythagorean Theorem, Crown Jewel of Mathematics

chronologically traces the Pythagorean Theorem from a

conjectured beginning, Consider the Squares (Chapter 1), through

4000 years of Pythagorean proofs, Four Thousand Years of Discovery

(Chapter 2), from all major proof categories, 20 proofs in total.

Chapter 3, Diamonds of the Same Mind, presents several

mathematical results closely allied to the Pythagorean Theorem

along with some major Pythagorean “spin-offs” such as

Trigonometry. Chapter 4, Pearls of Fun and Wonder, is a potpourri of

classic puzzles, amusements, and applications. An Epilogue, The

Crown and the Jewels, summarizes the importance of the

Pythagorean Theorem and suggests paths for further exploration.

Four appendices service the reader: A] Greek Alphabet, B]

Mathematical Symbols, C] Geometric Foundations, and D] References.

For the reader who may need a review of elementary geometric

concepts before engaging this book, Appendix C
