**The Pythagorean Theorem: Crown Jewel of Mathematics**

by John C. Sparks

**Publisher**: AuthorHouse 2008**Number of pages**: 190

**Description**:

The author chronologically traces the Pythagorean Theorem from a conjectured beginning, through 4000 years of Pythagorean proofs, from all major proof categories, 20 proofs in total. The text presents several mathematical results closely allied to the Pythagorean Theorem along with some major Pythagorean "spin-offs" such as trigonometry. The books contains some classic puzzles, amusements, and applications. An epilogue summarizes the importance of the Pythagorean theorem and suggests paths for further exploration.
