This book details the life of Archimedes. Jeanne Bendick, through text and pictures, admirably succeeds in bringing to life the ancient Greek mathematician who enriched mathematics and all branches of science. Against the backdrop of Archimedes' life and culture, the author discusses the man's work, his discoveries and the knowledge later based upon it. The simple, often humorous, illustrations and diagrams greatly enhance the text. of Archimedes and includes his scientific and mathematical discoveries.
The study guide emphasizes the areas of recalling details, getting the main idea, and drawing conclusions. It also includes basic information on simple machines and geometry. The teacher can choose from a variety of science material to meet the ability levels of her students. There is also the opportunity for the student to write a personal narrative and a news article. Some of the material was taken from the internet to supplement the math and science lessons. Please rate this resource. Thank you. Ellen Gaborhttp://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Einstein1
