This book draws on geometric ideas from cultural activities from Subsaharan Africa, and demonstrates how they may be explored to develop mathematical reasoning from school level through to university standard.

Paulus Gerdes provides a thoroughly illustrated and researched exploration of mathematical ideas, motifs and patterns.5/5(3). Women, Art and Geometry in Southern Africa received "Special Commendation" in the Noma Award for Publishing in Africa.

The book was praised by the jury for "combining in an indigenous way the study of geometry with that of the visual arts, presenting an important challenge and stimulant to the future of mathematics in relation to gender and race, and erases the borders between mathematics Cited by: The author presents the geometry of a sand drawing tradition—called sona in the Chokwe language (predominately northeast Angola).

Through the knowledge of sona, passed from generation to generation via beautiful, often symmetric, designs made in the sand, Gerdes uncovers mathematical ideas and presents examples of how they may be used in.

Pythagorean Theorem: The World’s Most Beautiful Mathematical Equation. Today, Pythagoras is best-known for the Pythagorean Theorem (known also as Pythagoras’ Theorem), which states that “the sum of the squares on the legs of a right triangle is Geometry from Africa book to the square on the hypotenuse (the side opposite the right angle).” Although named after the Greek philosopher, the theorem is.

Thousands of years ago, Africans were using numerals, algebra and geometry in daily life. This knowledge spread throughout the entire world after a series of migrations out of Africa, beginning aro BC, and later following a series of invasions of Africa.

Shape Up. Fun with Triangles and Other Polygons by David Adler and Nancy Tobin is an incredibly fun book to introduce and teach your students about basic geometry concepts such as triangles, polygons, and angles.

What makes this book so engaging is the hands-on and interactive nature of it. Your students will love the incorporation of food items such as pretzels, cheese, and bread pieces used. Math Mammoth Geometry 1 covers all the typical geometry topics for grades angles, triangles, quadrilaterals, other polygons,area, perimeter and volume.

This means that if you prefer, the student can fill it in on the computer, using the typewriter and drawing tools in Adobe Reader version 9 or greater. Paulus Gerdes has 22 books on Goodreads with ratings. Paulus Gerdes’s most popular book is Geometry from Africa: Mathematical and Educational Explora.

Lesson Eucildean Geometry In this lesson on Euclidean Geometry we focus on: Classifying angles, parallel and transversal lines, classifying triangles, properties of triangles, relationships between angles, congruency, similarity, pythagoras, the mid-point theorem as well as properties of quadrilaterals.

Lesson Analytical Geometry. The sona tradition is a part of the heritage of the Tchokwe, Lunda, Lwena, Xinge and Minungo peoples that inhabit the northeastern part of Angola, and of the Ngangela and Luchazi peoples of southeastern Angola and Western Zambia.

When the Tchokwe met at their central village places or at their hunting camps, they usually sat around a fire or in the shadow of leafy trees spending their time in.

In addition to Alon’s answer, I would point out that mathematics as an abstract discipline depends fairly strongly on literacy, which developed late in Sub-Saharan Africa. While counting, basic calculation, measurements and geometric patterns have.

May Geometry from Africa by Paulus Gerdes This beautifully illustrated book by the world's leading authority on African mathematics provides us with a wide-ranging introduction to mathematical intuition in sub-Saharan African cultures.

These cultures are extremely diverse and expressive in their creation of designs and motifs that embody geometrical and topological ideas. Geometry from Africa Mathematical and Educational Explorations. Paulus Gerdes. In the first chapter of Geometry from Africa, I present, through some examples an overview- necessarily incomplete-of geometrical ideas in African cultures, as manifested in the work of wood and ivory carvers, potters, painters, weavers, mat and basket makers, and of so many other laborious and creative African men.
