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' theorems, he perfected many of Theaetetus's theorems also. Much of Euclid's background is very vague and unknown. It is unreliable to say whether some things about him are true, there are two types of extra information stated that scientists do not know whether they are true or not. The first one is that given by Arabian authors who state that Euclid was the son of Naucrates and that he was born in Tyre. This is believed by historians of mathematics that this is entirely fictitious and was merely invented by the authors. The next type of information is that Euclid was born at Megara. But this is not the same Euclid that authors thought. In fact, there was a Euclid of Megara, who was a philosopher who lived approximately 100 years before Euclid of Alexandria.
Euclid was the leader of a team of mathematicians working at Alexandria. They all contributed to writing the 'complete works of...

...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 the principles of what is now called Euclidean geometry from a small set of axioms. Euclid also wrote works on perspective, conic sections, spherical geometry, number theory and rigor.
"Euclid" is the anglicized version of the Greek name meaning "Good Glory".
Life
Little is known about Euclid's life, as there are only a handful of references to him. The date and place of Euclid's birth and the date and circumstances of his death are unknown, and only roughly estimated in proximity to contemporary figures mentioned in references. No likeness or description of Euclid's physical appearance made during his lifetime survived antiquity.
The few historical references to Euclid were written centuries after he lived, by Proclus and Pappus of Alexandria. Proclus introduces Euclid only briefly in his fifth-century Commentary on the Elements, as the author of Elements, that he was mentioned by Archimedes, and that when King Ptolemy asked...

...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 geometry. Euclid organized the known geometrical ideas, starting with simple definitions, axioms; formed statements called theorems, and set forth methods for logical proofs. He began with accepted mathematical truths, axioms and postulates, and demonstrated logically 467 propositions in plane and solid geometry. One of the proofs was for the theorem of Pythagoras or now known as Pythagorean Theorem, proving that the equation is always true for every right triangle. The Elements was the most widely used textbook of all time, has appeared in more than 1,000 editions since printing was invented, was still found in classrooms until the twentieth century, and is thought to have sold more copies than any book other than the Bible. Euclid used an approach called the "synthetic approach" to present his theorems. Using this method, one progresses in a series of logical steps from the known to the unknown. Euclid proved that it is impossible to find the...

...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 of his work was destroyed in a fire. It is not sure where or when he was born, but it is believed he was born in Athens and lived from about 365 to 300 BC. He was educated there by the followers of Pluto.
Most of Euclid's work was on geometry. To be more specific, he studied pi, prime numbers, and the number theory. He even tried to find the proof that there is no end to prime numbers. King Ptolemy let him build a school of mathematical. After Euclid build the school of mathematics he taught there for twenty to thirty years. Surprisingly, it was much like one of these days.
One of Euclid's most famous books he wrote was called "Elements." It is the oldest Greek mathematical work to survive. It was translated, edited, and studied more than any other book, except the Bible. Over 1,000 editions have been published in various languages. The whole book was written in manuscript form and was first printed in 1482. It has 13 chapters, books or texts. It is called chapters in...

...Euclid of Alexandria
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Born: about 325 BC
Died: about 265 BC in Alexandria, Egypt
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Euclid of Alexandria is the most prominent mathematician of antiquity best known for his treatise on mathematics The Elements. The long lasting nature of The Elements must make Euclid the leading mathematics teacher of all time. However little is known of Euclid's life except that he taught at Alexandria in Egypt. Proclus, the last major Greek philosopher, who lived around 450 AD wrote (see [1] or [9] or many other sources):-
Not much younger than these [pupils of Plato] is Euclid, who put together the "Elements", arranging in order many of Eudoxus's theorems, perfecting many of Theaetetus's, and also bringing to irrefutable demonstration the things which had been only loosely proved by his predecessors. This man lived in the time of the first Ptolemy; for Archimedes, who followed closely upon the first Ptolemy makes mention of Euclid, and further they say that Ptolemy once asked him if there were a shorted way to study geometry than the Elements, to which he replied that there was no royal road to geometry. He is therefore younger than Plato's circle, but older than Eratosthenes and Archimedes; for these were contemporaries, as Eratosthenes...

...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 books called “The Elements”. The Elements were on subjects like circles, irrational numbers, 3D geometry, plane geometry and number theory. The Elements consist of five postulates and definitions. These books explained simple theories to detailed explanations of what a line is. Although he did not discover most of these he was the first to publish a series about them.
Euclid also wrote “Data”, “which looked at what properties of figures can be deducted when other properties were given.” He wrote “On Divisions” “which looked at constructions to divide a figure into two parts with area of given ratio.” “Optics” “was the first Greek book on perspective”. “Phaenomena” was about mathematical astronomy. Euclid also wrote many other books that were lost in history such as Surface Loci, Porisms, Elements of Music, Conics, and Book of Fallacies.
He is considered to be the father of geometry because of the theories he discussed in his books. Some of which still have not been proven to be true in this day and age. Although there is very...

...Euclid and His Contributions to Mathematics
Euclid was an ancient Greek mathematician from Alexandria who is best known for his
major work,
Elements.
Although little is known about Euclid the man, he taught in a school that
he founded in Alexandria, Egypt, around 300 b.c.e. For his major study,
Elements,
Euclid
collected the work of many mathematicians who preceded him. Among these were Hippocrates
of Chios, Theudius, Theaetetus, and Eudoxus. Euclid's vital contribution was to gather, compile,
organize, and rework the mathematical concepts of his predecessors into a consistent whole, later
to become known as Euclidean geometry. Euclidean constructions are the shapes and figures that
can be produced solely by a compass and an unmarked straightedge. Although these tools were
indeed simple, their range of abilities seemed unlimited. Not only could they produce a multitude
of angles and lengths, but also elegantlooking regular polygons and a wide variety of 2D
shapes with desired area. These basic tools seemed to be able to do or produce anything. When,
after countless attempts, they were unable to solve the three classical problems of trisecting an
angle, doubling the cube, and squaring the circle, the Greeks were forced to reach out to new and
more complicated instruments. It was the inadequacy in these three problems that helped make ...

...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 of Alexandria. Euclid attended the great library of Alexandria and may have studied at Plato's Academy in Greece. Euclid's life span is unknown and he was often confused with Euclid of Megara, who was a Greek Socratic philosopher who live about a century earlier.
His elements is the most successful textbook in the history of mathematics. The principles of geometry are deduced from a small set of axioms. Euclid's method of proving mathematical theorems by logical reasoning from accepted first principles continues to be the backbone of mathematics and is responsible for that field's characteristics rigor. Elements is best-known for its geometric results, but it also includes many results in number theory, for example the connection between perfect numbers and Mersenne primes, the proof of the infinitude of prime numbers, Euclid's lemma on factorization this leads to the fundamental theorem of arithmetic on uniqueness of prime factorizations, and the...
