Catherine has eagerly started Key to Algebra and was working away at factoring this morning when she asked me this:
"Do you know what I would really like? I'd like a book like The Story of Science but all about math and that I could read myself."
Um. Yes. That would be really neat. Unfortunately I don't think I've seen a book like the around. Certainly The Story of Science: Aristotle Leads the Way itself is pretty heavy on math history. If anybody has any suggestions of non-fiction books that talk about the history of math, please let me know!
