Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback
This book is designed for teachers to use in the classroom. Ancient Chinese math is difficult to understand, but this book is very practical in that it shows teachers important ways of thinking about math that students have not seen. For example, the Chinese used the concept of dissection of geometric figures to solve problems in surveying and geometry that use no angles, are surprisingly simple, and make students solve problems in different ways. There are a variety of problems in basic math, algebra, and number theory. The book is designed to be reproducible to use in the classroom. Highly recommended.
