Karamanides work on Pythagoras is an extremely difficult piece to gather knowledge from for a middle school student. Although, there is some great information and insight into the life of Pythagoras, I believe that a background knowledge on Greek and Middle Eastern life is required to gather as much information as I would like a student to pull from the book. That said, if I were to use this book, I would assign sections of reading rather than reading the entire book. Given the contributions made to field of Mathematics by Pythagoras, I believe that it is necessary to learn more about this man. I believe that the section on the logic of the Pythagorean Theorem is especially well done and easily comprehended by students learning the material. Overall, this book can serve as a great compliment to teaching Pythagorean Theorem in the classroom.
Very insightive to pythagoras' life. Quite helpful for school assignments and what not, this preview of the book may not be as helpful as the actual book because the preview is missing a hundred odd pages or so. Recomended.
