    Geometry was actually first used in ancient Egypt and Babylon at around 2000 BC in both cases. In order for the Egyptians to build such massive structures as the pyramids they had to have made plans for them prior to the actually building, in these plans geometry had to be used. On ancient Babylonian tablets there is evidence that they understood the Pythagorean theorem. The so-called "father" of Geometry is Euclid a Greek mathematician. He wrote The Elements, books of postulates and theorems, w...
  • Work Of Euclid For Geometry
    828 words
    The Work of Euclid for Geometry Euclid is one of the most influential and best read mathematicians of all time. His prize work, Elements, was the textbook of elementary geometry and logic up to the early twentieth century. For his work in the field, he is known as the father of geometry and is considered one of the great Greek mathematicians. Very little is known about the life of Euclid. Both the dates and places of his birth and death are unknown. The best estimation is that he was born aroun...

    Covalent Bonding and Molecular Geometry Objective The objective of this exercise is to help in understanding the geometric relationships of atoms in simple molecules and the relationship of hybridization to the geometry present. Discussion In the last 30 years, data obtained from spectrometric measurements, Xray and electron diffraction studies, and other experiments have yielded precise information about bond distances, angles, and energies. In many cases, the data confirmed conclusions reached...
  • How Geometry Is Used In Construction

    I have conducted my research through interview with someone familiar with construction and development as how geometry is used in these fields. The first step to development is to survey the property in order to document and draw the bounds and land surface shapes. The property will be represented by various geometry elements such as points, lines, arcs, circles, and other defined geometry shapes. Surveyors use scope on tripods witch use projection of line Referenced point on a stick in order to...
  • Euclid's 5th Postulate Straight Line

    Euclid s Fifth Postulate One of the most fascinating aspects of Mathematics is that there exist statements that are both true and false. Perhaps the most famous of these is Euclid s controversial fifth postulate. Throughout history, almost from the postulate conception, mathematics have tried to prove or disprove it. Actually, it seems that even Euclid himself did not entirely trust the postulate, for he avoided using it as long as he could in his great work, The Elements. From the beginning, E...

  • Euclidean Geometry Learn Basic Euclid

    Euclidean Geometry Geometry was thoroughly organized in about 300 BC, when the Greek mathematician Euclid gathered what was known at the time, added original work of his own, and arranged 465 propositions into 13 books, called 'Elements'. The books covered not only plane and solid geometry but also much of what is now known as algebra, trigonometry, and advanced arithmetic. Through the ages, the propositions have been rearranged, and many of the proofs are different, but the basic idea presented...

    Rene' Descartes was born in La Haye, Touraine (a former province of France) March 31, 1596. He spent all of his childhood in France. His father was a minor nobleman and councillor of the Parliament of Brittany, his title was noblesse de la robe. Descartes mother was not as prominate as her husband but she was quite wealthy. The nationality of both his parents is French. His religion was Roman Catholic. In 1606 at the age of eight Descartes enrolled in the Jesuit college of La F leche in Anjou, ...
  • The Life Of Rene' Descartes
    732 words
    Rene' Descartes was a French mathematician, philosopher and anatomist. He contributed a great deal to modern ideas, particularly those concerned with geometry. He was known in his time as a mechanist, because he believed that nature could be explained through rational means, and inherent patterns could be found. During his life, Descartes remade geometry and made modern geometry possible. Rene' Descartes was born on March, 31 1596 in La Haye, Touraine, which was a former province of France. Ren...

    Greek Geometry Although the original roots of geometry can be traced to the Egyptians, the Greeks built on most Egyptian theories that we use today. Greek astronomy and Greek geometry were both used in order to answer many difficult questions of the time. Without geometry, the study of astronomy would have been almost impossible, and vice versa. Even though many Greek theorems and principles were later built on by geniuses such as Einstein and Lobachevsky, the basis still remains the same. The d...

    Unlike geometry, algebra was not developed in Europe. Algebra was actually discovered (or developed) in the Arab countries along side geometry. Many mathematicians worked and developed the system of math to be known as the algebra of today. European countries did not obtain information on algebra until relatively later years of the 12 th century. After algebra was discovered in Europe, mathematicians put the information to use in very remarkable ways. Also, algebraic and geometric ways of think...

    Greek Mathematics Centered on Geometry (Euclid) The ancient Greeks have contributed much to the development of the Western World as we know it today. The Greeks questioned all and yearned for the answers to many of life's questions. Their society revolved around learning, which allowed them to devote the majority of their time to enlightenment. In answering their questions, they developed systematic activities such as philosophy, psychology, astronomy, mathematics, and a great deal more. Socrate...
  • Euclid Father Of Geometry

    Euclid The Father of Geometry Very little is known of the father of geometry, also known as Euclid. Records show that he lived somewhere around 300 B. C. , but that date is sketchy. He was a Greek mathematician and is probably best known for his work Elements. Since little is known about the personal life of Euclid, it is difficult to do a biography on him. His chief work, entitled Elements, is a comprehensive treatise on mathematics. It includes 13 volumes that entail such subjects as plane ge...

    The Application of Fractal Geometry to Ecology Principles of Ecology 310 L Victoria Levin 7 December 1995 Abstract New insights into the natural world are just a few of the results from the use of fractal geometry. Examples from population and landscape ecology are used to illustrate the usefulness of fractal geometry to the field of ecology. The advent of the computer age played an important role in the development and acceptance of fractal geometry as a valid new discipline. New insights gaine...

    Math and many of its aspects are a major part of everyday life. We spend the majority of our school years studying and learning the concepts of it. Many times, the question of why do we need to know these things has been asked. The following report will explain the history and purpose of geometry in our lives. Geometry means measure of the earth. In ancient Egypt, the Nile would flood its banks each year, flooding the land and destroying the farm areas. When the waters receded and the people ha...

    Euclid of Alexandria is thought to have lived from about 325 BC until 265 BC in Alexandria, Egypt. There is very little known about his life. It was thought he was born in Megara, which was proven to be incorrect. There is in fact a Euclid of Megara, but he was a philosopher who lived 100 years before Euclid of Alexandria. Also people say that Euclid of Alexandria is the son of Naucratis, but there is no proof of this assumption. Euclid was a very common name at that time, so it was hard to dist...

    Jean-Victor Poncelet fought for Napoleon's France against Russia in the battle at Krosnoy. Unfortunately for him, he was taken prisoner. He survived the subsequent tortuous years through luck alone. During his rehabilitation, and still a prisoner of war, he eagerly resumed his study of Mathematics, at the hospital at Saratov. He had been a pupil of and interested in the work of, Gaspar d Monge. However, being isolated in Saratov, he was uninformed about the work that Monge and peers were publish...

    Fractals What are fractals? Fractal geometry provides us with a new viewpoint to see the world. For centuries scientists used the line as a building block to understand the objects around us. Chaos science uses a different geometry called fractal geometry. Fractal geometry is a new language used to describe, and examine difficult forms found in nature. Fractal is a name coined by Mandelbrot in the 1960's. Fractals are the division of geometry dealing with broken curves. Mandelbrot came up with ...
