How Greek Maths Changed the World [Education]
posted June 5 2014 12:35.36 by spic0m




Professor Alan Davies presents a series of groundbreaking experiments pioneered by the Ancient Greeks. Often called the "birthplace of civilisation", Ancient Greece heralded numerous advances in philosophy, science, engineering and mathematics which have shaped our understanding of the modern world.

Assisted by Ri demo technician, Andy Marmery, Professor Davies demonstrates the key discoveries and experiments of many Greek thinkers -- from Thales and Pythagoras to Euclid, Archimedes and Hypatia of Alexandria.
