This is an Independent Study of the History of Mathematics.


As I began my research for this project, I was amazed at the information available on the history of mathematics. Therefore, I condensed my focus to just the history of geometry in order for my work to be meaningful. Within the study of geometry, I have chosen to focus on Greek geometry.


Here is an outline of what I have done:

A brief history of Greek geometry

Apollonius of Perga

Archimedes of Syracuse

Euclid of Alexandria

Hippocrates of Chios

Hypatia of Alexandria


Pythagoras of Samos

Thales of Miletus

Some sample proofs by Greek geometers


Pythagorean Theorem
