Welcome to the Quadrivium School! This summer, we are unveiling two new revolutionary graphic novels. Meet Pythagoras as he gently guides you through the most intriguing ideas of Ancient Greece! The following adventures will give you a firm grasp on logical thinking in the midst of paradoxes, a comprehensive history of school, and how it all formed modern mathematics.
Classical Arithmetic with Pythagoras Book 1: The Philosophy of Numbers: Can you outthink Pythagoras? This book explores the Ancient Greeks’ fundamental beliefs of mathematical philosophy. Join Pythagoras on an epic quest to explain the subtleties of reality. What is real? What is wisdom? What is the composition of the cosmos?
Classical Arithmetic with Pythagoras Book 2: On the Infinite: Motion does not exist? This book deals with the complex history of mathematical infinity, bounding with ingenious proofs and paradoxes. Witness Zeno and others deduce the fabric of reality, while at the same time putting our most cherished fundamental beliefs into question. How old is the universe? What is nothing? What is the essence of everything?
I hope these books will help inspire a love of learning and mathematics for students and teachers alike! They are meant to be read out of enjoyment, while nonchalantly concealing the fact that high-level math and theoretical physics concepts are discussed deeply. Enjoy!
