The History of Modern Science and Mathematics is an innovative, multi-volume encyclopedia for students high school level and above. Organized topically around the various disciplines of science and mathematics -- from algebra, anthropology and astronomy to paleontology, physics and trigonometry -- this comprehensive reference takes readers through revolutions scientific and industrial, outward to the far limits of space and inward to the tiniest particles. Sidebar features and explanatory illustrations and historical photographs expand and contextualize the encyclopedia-style entries. Also includes an interdisciplinary timeline, a bibliography and subject index.
"The History of Modern Science and Mathematics is a scholarly collection of essays and writings on a variety of topics. The four volumes are designed to explain to the high school student the relationship between science and mathematics and the way in which history has played a role in advances in these fields. The essays presented reflect not only the views of scientists and academicians in the sciences, but also the perspectives of noted historians who trace the role that cultural development has played in these areas. ...Everything in these volumes is very well documented and referenced. I found the set to be an excellent collection of scholarly explanations and essays."
