Abstract
 
Description
Few biographies of al-Biruni exist in English, and this is the first for young adults. Al-Biruni studies medicine, physics, philosophy, mathematics, and astronomy, and possessed a profoundly stunning intellect. He helped develop mathematics, from trigonometry to calculus, mapped cities and the distances between them, and inspired others in the virtuous pursuit of knowledge. Supports history-social science context standards mandating exploration of intellectual exchanges and contributions of Muslim scholars, and their influence on the science, geography, mathematics, philosophy, and medicine of later civilizations. - from Amzon
