This follow-up to the educational title What's Your Angle, Pythagoras continues with the storybook math lesson, but this time on Pythagorean ratios.
In the story, young Pythagoras and his friends want to win a music contest, but their instruments are out of tune. In puzzling over the problem, Pythagoras uncovers mathematical relationships in the sounds.
disclosure: We have not had a chance to read this book yet, but we're
adding it here early because several teachers have written in to
recommend this book for geometry lessons. We have it on order and
will update this section once we are done. Based on the educational
strengths of it's predecessor (above) and the challenge that some
students have grasping Pythagorean ratios, we imagine the strongest
benefit of this book will be in differentiating your lesson for the
many different learning
styles in your classroom.
