Who is he ? Lived in the ages (287-212 BC) Survived the Turmoil War as a young child Raised and taught by the grandfather of geometry (Euclid) Although he was physicist, engineer, inventor, and astronomer Math was related behind all of his inventions.
What Branch of Math did he teach? The branch Archimedes taught was mostly geometry as well as; Invented calculus Approximate value of pi Law of the lever Solved problems of buoyancy Invented new number system Volume of a sphere
Fun Fact Various nights Arcimedes was so in depth in geometry that he forgot to eat or sleep
Interested in Archimedes The reason I was interested in choosing Archimedes Is because he didn’t just create laws for math. He used them in every day life to construct pieces of work. The “son of geometry “ never gave up on his inventions. If something went wrong, he stayed up later and later until he found the problem. I believe Archimedes, Newton and Euclid were not only the most famous inventors but greatest mathematicians ever to live.
Fun Fact One night Archimedes was taking a bath when he discovered the principle of buoyancy, he jumped out of the bath and ran naked through the streets yelling 'Eureka' which means - I have found it. I have found it.
Why is his inventions important to me ? All of his brilliant Proves we still use today. In math 20-2 we learn the importance of geometry and how to use it in day to day life. One of the course outlines were to determine the surface area and volume of shapes. Archimedes discovered the area and volume of a sphere. 4piradious2 is the area that was invented before Christ.
Extended Determining what the area of a sphere was without pi was impossible. Even though his Pi was not exact it was still very close, sometimes making his equations off by a hair. Archimedes volume of a sphere was also taught in grade 11 mathematics. (4/3)r3 is the volume of a sphere which was used many times in geometry.
Where did it originate ? Born 287BC Father was an astronomer Archimedes learned most of his knowledge as a child in his home,Syracuse,Sicily After learning all he could in Sicily he travelled to Alexandra with sailors. Arch did not meet Euclid but he did study all of his books in Alexandra. Related to king Herion, leader at the time.
Significance Archimedes used a math today known as calculus. By trying to find the space outside of a parabola. Used in todays Calculus 30-1 classes.
Significance Although he did not create the leaver he added a lot to the invention. Today it might seem quite simple but there is a lot of math involved. The longer distance from the fulcrum, the easier it is to lift the object.
Summary Archimedes created and added to many inventions that we still use today. Without the help of Euclid Arch wouldn’t have thought of these new ideas. Most of his ideas bounded off of Euclid's thoughts. Being a Famous Mathematician was one thing but also have a degree in physicist, engineer and astronomer was another. Arch Proved in his experiments if you want something bad enough it will happen. Coming up with the idea of something was not good enough, having proof to back it up was.
