The Pythagorean Theorem: Crown Jewel of Mathematics
by John C. Sparks
Publisher: AuthorHouse 2008
Number of pages: 190
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.

The book does not assume any previous knowledge of the Conic Sections, which are here treated on the basis of the definition of them as the curves of projection of a circle. Many of the properties of the Conic Sections are proved quite simply.

Researches on curves of the second order are given in this book, also on cones and spherical conics treated analytically, in which the tangencies of Apollonius are investigated, and general geometrical constructions deduced from analysis.
