Pythagoras

Greek Mathematician Pythagoras

is considered by some to be one of the first great mathematicians.

Living around 570 to 495 BC in Greece.

He is known to have founded the Pythagorean cult, who were noted by Aristotle to be one of the first to study and advance mathematics.

He is also commonly credited with the Pythagorean Theorem within trigonometry.

He could be considered father of modern mathematics.

ARCHIMEDES

Arquímedes de Siracusa

was born on 287 a. C. Siracusa, Sicilia and died in ibídem on 212 a. C.

He was a physicist and Greek mathematic

He calculate the area under the arc of a parabola with the summation of an infinite series method, and gave an extremely accurate approximation of Pi.

He defined an ingenious system for expressing very long numbers but its most advanced basics where the hydrostatic fundamentals, static and explanation of the principle of the lever

EULER

Leorhard Euler

Living from 1707 to 1783

greatest mathematician to have ever lived this planet.

mathematical notation including the concept of a function and how it is written.

the Greek letter Sigma for summation and as well the symbol pi for the ratio of a circles circumference to its diameter.

Euler paved the way for modern mathematics and all its revelations.

GAUSS

Leonardo Fibonacci, is one of the middle ages greatest mathematicians.

Living from 1170 to 1250

He spent a large part of his childhood in North Africa learning Arabic numbering system then the bulky Roman numerals.

he published his Liber Abaci, where upon the Arabic numbers

today he is considered a major player in the development of modern mathematics.

FIBONACCI

NEWTON

Isaac Newton

born on January 4, 1643 Woolsthorpe, Lincolnshire and died in Kensington, London on March 31, 1727.

He discovered the law of universal gravitation

He also was the inventor of the modern infinitesimal calculus and he laid the foundations of classical mechanics from his own laws.

Carl Friedrich Gauss

Born 30 April 1777 in Brunswick, Germany and died 23 February 1855 in Gottingen, Germany

‘Prince of Mathematics’

he began to make several important contributions on Prime numbers).

He went on to prove the fundamental theorem of algebra, and introduced the Gaussian gravitational constant in physics

THALES

Eratosthenes of Cyrene

Born: 276 BC in Cyrene, North Africa

Died: 194 BC in Alexandria, Egypt

One of the important works of Eratosthenes was Platonicus

He discovered earth's circunference

he state and investigate more about prime numbers

Thales of Miletus

Born: about 624 BC in Miletus,Turkey

Died: about 547 BC in Miletus,Turkey

Founder of abstract geometry

Thales is known as the first Greek and probably the first philosopher, scientist and mathematician

Thales was a figure of enormous prestige, being the only philosopher before Socrates to be among the Seven Sages.

Euclid of Alexandria was born on middle of 4th century BC and died Died and died middle of the 3rd century BC.

He was a was a Greek mathematician, that basically was the father of the geometry in history.

He's great work in all times was the elements, this masterpiece is one of the most influential works in the history of mathematics

being the base of the teaching up until 21st century in geometry and in the hole area of mathematics.

This elements created the geometry and changed into the number of theory.

rene descartes

was born the 31 of march in the french touraine of 1596

Died in Stockholm, Sweden 1650

Rene Descartes is best known for his ‘Cogito Ergo Sum’ philosophy. Despite this, the Frenchman, who was borne in 1596 and he died in 1650. Alongside Newton and Leibniz, Descartes helped provide the foundations of modern calculus which in itself had great bearing on the modern day field. Alongside this, and more familiar people is his development of Cartesian Geometry,
