    This fascinating book explores many different facets of mathematics, and is an intriguing read for anyone - whether or not they enjoy the actual subject! It begins with a chapter which discusses the calendar - how it came about, problems and changes that were corrected and re-corrected, how the months were named and the days were divided amongst them, different people who influenced the calendar, and finally the system that we have today. Did you know that our calendar will have to be adjusted again, assuming we reach the year 5329? By then, our current calendar will be off an entire day. The text is so interesting it's hard not to just keep reading. Throughout the text, questions, puzzles, and problems are offered as a challenge for students. Some of the topics covered include measuring, practical mathematics, number names and patterns, endless numbers, math for scientists, and computing machines. Lots of history is given with each topic, so students learn not only about the concepts but how they were formed and developed over time to give us the functions we commonly use today. An excellent supplement to any math curriculum, reading a chapter from this book would provide an excellent break from the daily math lessons. 157 pgs. - Melissa

    From Eratosthenes to Wernher von Braun, this volume looks at the exploration of our planet. The high-interest vignettes and tales of discovery include references to God and faith, where applicable. I hadn't realized before reading this book that rocket scientist Wernher von Braun was also a committed Christian. I also understand a little better now why, despite the fact that Eratosthenes virtually proved the Earth was a sphere, people clung to the belief that the Earth was flat.

    An introductory history of chemistry, this extremely readable text covers discoveries and developments from ancient to present times. Major emphasis is placed on the contributions of individual scientists (such as Cavendish, Mendeleev, Boyle, and Rutherford) and how they made their discoveries. The focus is not on balancing chemical equations or learning the number of electrons in specific elements. 16 chapters cover: ancient metals (iron, lead, tin), money metals (gold, silver, copper), the search for gold, gases in the air, the use of currents to separate elements, the first periodic table, using a spectroscope to identify elements, cathode ray tubes and alpha particle experiments, compounds by electric attraction, water and its unique properties, carbon and its compounds, organic chemistry, nitrogen and its compounds, silicon and its compounds, modern metals, and chemistry in today's world.
