  1. The Prince of Mathematics: Carl Friedrich Gauss by M. B. W. Tent Great High Level Overview Of Gauss's Life A wonderfully narrated tale following the life of Carl Friedrich Gauss, the 18th century mathematician, from his prodigious childhood to his extraordinary achievements that earned him the title Prince of Mathematics . Along the way, the author introduces her young readers to a different culture, the era of small states in Germany where advancement on merits, such as Gauss , was supported by enlightened rulers, competing for intellectual excellence and economic advantage through scientific progress in their small states. Based on extensive research of original and secondary sources, the author has created a historical narrative that will inspire young readers and even curious adults with a story full of human touch and personal achievement. Personal Review: The Prince of Mathematics: Carl Friedrich Gauss by M. B. W. Tent This was a great overview of Gauss's life and career. I have an engineering background and used Gauss's mathematics during my college days and engineering work. This book was written so that one could read and appreciate it with a very limited understanding of algebra and
  2. trigonometry. I knew very little about Gauss's life before reading this text, and I am happy with what I learned about him. This book gave several brief examples of how Gauss thought about math problems as a young man. For example, the author describes several mathematical problems that Gauss solved in a very unique way compared to his peers (e.g. quickly finding the sum of all integers from 1 to 100). The book contains descriptions of how a young Gauss approached and thought about his unique solutions. Several areas of Gauss's expertise were only briefly described (e.g. his work on magnetism). I would have liked to have had more technical detail included as an appendix to the text. For More 5 Star Customer Reviews and Lowest Price: The Prince of Mathematics: Carl Friedrich Gauss by M. B.
