Archimedes and the Door of Science....

We recently finished reading Archimedes and the Door of Science by Jeanne Bendick as part of the Beautiful Feet History of Science program.  Bendick's biography is chock full of science and mathematical ideas that could easily be the spine of a science study in and of itself. As Bendick explains Archimedes contributions to physics, astronomy, and mathematics, the reader begins to see how important he was not only in history, but today, in modern times as well.  In addition to the biographical information, there is experiments for the reader to perform.  Bendick's illustrations aid the text.  Archimedes and the Door of Science is also a suggested book for Sonlight Core G and Ambleside Online Year 6.
