Editorial Reviews

Review

... a basic introduction to the types of problems that illustrate the earliest forms of algebra. It would be particularly useful for an instructor who is looking for examples to help enliven a course on elementary algebra with problems drawn from actual historical texts. ----Warren Van Egmond about the French edition for MathSciNet

Highly Recommended. ---- CHOICE Magazine
