Euclid is considered by many as the “Father of Geometry.” A Greek mathematician, Euclid is believed to have lived around 300 BC. He is most known for his contributions to geometry and immaculate proofs. His magnum opus, The Elements, is one of the greatest mathematical works in history, with its use in education still existent until the 20th century.

His areas of math ranged from geometry, algebra, number theories, irrational numbers, and solid geometry. Then, after he was done teaching, he wrote his best work, The Elements. It was based on the works of mathematicians that came before him, who he had much respect for, and his own thoughts and theories. The Elements consists of thirteen books, all written by Euclid and based on methods and beliefs before him. Books 1-6 are all on focused on plane geometry, books 7-9 consist of number theories, and book 10 deals with Exodus's theory of irrational numbers, and books 11-13 deal with solid geometry. It is "remarkable for the clarity with which the theorems and problems are selected and ordered" (Albaugh, 1972). At the time of its introduction, Elements was the most comprehensive and logically rigorous examination of the basic principles of geometry. It survived the eclipse of classical learning, which occurred with the fall of the Roman Empire, through Arabic translations. Elements was reintroduced to Europe in 1120 C.E. when Adelard of Bath translated an Arabic version into Latin. Over time, it became a standard textbook in many societies, including the United States, and remained widely used until the mid-nineteenth century. Much of the information in it still forms a part of many high school geometry curricula.

It is important to note that Euclid’s Elements is not his only contribution to mathematics. However, this monumental contribution to the field of geometry overwhelmingly represents Euclid’s presence in mathematics. At any rate, Euclid certain remains one of the most influential and important figures in...

...EUCLID: The Man Who Created a Math Class
Euclid of Alexandria was born in about 325 BC. He is the most prominent mathematician of antiquity best known for his dissertation on mathematics. He was able to create "The Elements" which included the composition of many other famous mathematicians together. He began exploring math because he felt that he needed to compile certain things and fix certain postulates and theorems. His book included, many of Eudoxus'...

...Euclid, also known as Euclid of Alexandria, was a Greek mathematician, often referred to as the "Father of Geometry". He was active in Alexandria during the reign of Ptolemy I (323–283 BC). His Elements is one of the most influential works in the history of mathematics, serving as the main textbook for teaching mathematics(especially geometry) from the time of its publication until the late 19th or early 20th century. In the Elements, Euclid deduced...

...EuclidEuclid was a Greek mathematician and often known as the “Father of Geometry “.He was born around 300 B.C. He taught mathematics in Alexandria, Egypt, at the Alexandria library or "Museum", and that he wrote the most enduring mathematical work of all time, the Stoicheia or Elements, a thirteen volume work. The Elements or Stoicheia is divided into thirteen books. The books go over plane geometry, arithmetic and number theory, irrational numbers, and solid...

...EuclidEuclid, an ancient Greek mathematician, once said to a king, "There's no royal road to geometry." By that he meant that there's no shortcuts to geometry. You have to work hard and learn it the long way. In this research paper I will tell you what made him famous and what he did.
Very little is known about Euclid's life. One of the reasons is because he gets mixed up with Euclid of Megara, a Socratic philosopher. Another reason is because some...

...In Alexandria, the second largest city in Egypt, one of the greatest mathematicians to ever exist on Earth was born in 325 BCE. This mathematician’s name was Euclid. He is said to be the son of Naucrates. Euclid was named after Euclid of Megara, a philosopher who lived one hundred years before him. Not only was Euclid a mathematician and a scientist, he was an author as well.
Euclid’s most well-known writing was a series of...

...Euclid also known as Euclid of Alexandria, was a Greek mathematician who flourished in Alexandria, Egypt, almost certainly during the reign of Ptolemy 1 between 323 and 283 BC. Neither the year nor the place of his birth has been established, and the circumstances of his death remain a mystery. Little is known about Euclid other than his writings, the little information known about Euclid comes from commentaries by Proclus and Pappus...
