Leonard of Pisa and the New Mathematics of the Middle Ages by Frances Gies PDF

I read this just because it was by the Gieses, and because I was discarding it from the middle school library so I felt guilty.A very padded biography of Fibonacci (apparently because there is so little to discover of him) with some lovely history of Pisa and medieval merchants.The book really picks up when they get into his books, the introduction of Arabic numerals, and Fibonacci's mathematical breakthroughs.It is worth thinking about how much we learn in elementary school now that was the stuff of theoretical mathematicians of the past - and how much our thinking may change from something like the move from Roman numerals to a number system that has 0s and place value.
