Chapters in Mathematics

From pi to Pell

Craig Smorynski

Growing out of a course in the history
of mathematics given to school teachers,
the present book covers a number of topics
of elementary mathematics from both the
mathematical and historical perspectives.
Included are topics from geometry
(π, Napoleon’s Theorem, trigonometry),
recreational mathematics (the Pell equation,
Fibonacci numbers), and computational
mathematics (fi nding square roots,
mathematical tables). Although written with
the needs of the mathematics teacher in
mind, the book can be read profi tably by
any high school graduate with a liking for
mathematics.
