An Introduction to Ancient Greece


Part 4: Math, Science, and History

The Greeks also made great discoveries in math and science. Pythagoras invented his famous Theorem. Euclid invented geometry. Eratosthenes calculated how many miles the Earth was around. Aristarchus calculated the distance from Earth to the Moon. Aristotle made a name for himself as a scientist as well.

The Greeks were also the first to write history. Herodotus and Thucydides wrote about wars and other parts of Greek life.

Much of Western Civilization today can be traced to ancient Greece. In many ways, the spirit of the Greeks of yesterday lives in the people and practices of today and tomorrow.
