Euclid: The Man Who Invented Geometry
Euclid lived 2300 years ago in Alexandria, in northern Egypt. His was a brilliant mind. He devised a method of learning Geometry starting from the simplest idea – an Axiom - something we can all agree is self-evident. Euclid built argument upon argument, creating a brillaintly simple system for learning Geometry which he wrote down in his book - Euclid's Elements - which was still in everyday use in schools well into the 20th century.
