Product Description

Integrating history, music, and math, Pythagoras and the Ratios explores how a young Pythagoras might have come up with idea of musical ratios. Examining the idea of harmony (and how music played together sounds good), as well as the idea of ratios on panpipes and lyres, this story integrates math alongside the narrative story of how Pythagoras and his cousins want to win a music contest. 32 pages, paperback.

Publisher's Description

Julie Ellis and Phyllis Hornung Peacock team up once again to explore Pythagorean ratios in this humorous sequel to WHAT'S YOUR ANGLE, PYTHAGORAS?

Pythagoras and his cousins want to win a music contest, but first they must figure out how to play their instruments in tune, something that's never been done before.
While trying to fix the problem, Pythagoras makes an important discovery--notes that sound pleasant together have a certain mathematical relationship. When Pythagoras applies this ratio to his cousins' pipes and lyres, the result is music to the ears.

Author Bio

Julie Ellis is the author of many books for children, including WHAT'S YOUR ANGLE, PYTHAGORAS, which she wrote as a way to show her daughter the uses of the Pythagorean Theorem. She lives in New Zealand.
