Albert Einstein**

Einstein was born on March 14,
1879, in Ulm Germany. He lived there with his parents,

Herman and Pauline. Einstein attended a Catholic School near his home.
But, at age 10, Einstein was transferred to the "Luitpold Gymnasium",
where he learned Latin, Greek, History, and Geography. Einstein's father
wanted him to attend a university but he could not because he did not
have a diploma from the Gymnasium. But there was a solution to this
problem over the Alps, in Zurich. There was The Swiss Federal Institute
of Technology which did not require a diploma to attend. The one thing
it did require was applicant to pass an entrance exam. But then yet
another problem arose most scholars were 18 when they entered the
institute, and Einstein was only 16.

Ancient
Advances in Mathematics**

Ancient knowledge of the sciences was
often wrong and wholly unsatisfactory by modern standards. However not
all of the knowledge of the more learned peoples of the past was false.
In fact without people like Euclid or Plato we may not have been as
advanced in this age as we are. Mathematics is an adventure in ideas.
Within the history of mathematics, one finds the ideas and lives of some
of the most brilliant people in the history of mankind’s’ populace upon
Earth.

Apollonius of Perga**

Apollonius was a great mathematician,
known by his contempories as " The Great Geometer, " whose treatise
Conics is one of the greatest scientific works from the ancient world.
Most of his other treatise were lost, although their titles and a
general indication of their contents were passed on by later writers,
especially Pappus of Alexandria.

Blaise Pascal**

Blaise Pascal was born in
Clermont France on June 19, 1623, and died in Paris on Aug. 19, 1662.
His father, a local judge at Clermont, and also a man with a scientific
reputation, moved the family to Paris in 1631, partly to presue his own
scientific studies, partly to carry on the education of his only son,
who had already displayed exceptional ability. Blaise was kept at home
in order to ensure his not being overworked, and it was directed that
his education should be at first confined to the study of languages, and
should not include any mathematics. Young Pascal was very curious, one
day at the age of twelve while studying with his tutor, he asked about
the study of geometry. After this he began to give up his play time to
persue the study of geometry.

Calculus**

"One of the greatest contributions to
modern mathematics, science, and engineering was

the invention of calculus near the end of the 17th century," says The
New Book of Popular

Science. Without the invention of calculus, many technological
accomplishments, such as the landing on the moon, would have been
difficult.

Electricity**

Cost for electricity is based on
a kilowatt hour. A voltmeter is always placed in parallel to the lines
of a circut. In a series voltage is seperated at each outlet. Voltage
acts like a force, because it moves electrons through a circut. AC
current changes direction 60 times per. second. The normal Voltage
supplied in homes is 220.

EUCLIDEAN GEOMETRY**

Geometry was thoroughly organized in
about 300 BC, when the Greek mathematician Euclid gathered what was
known at the time, added original work of his own, and arranged 465
propositions into 13 books, called 'Elements'. The books covered not
only plane and solid geometry but also much of what is now known as
algebra, trigonometry, and advanced arithmetic.

chapter of mathematics, but one that helps Everyman to see the same old
world differently". - Benoit Mandelbrot

**
Pythagorean Theorem**

Trigonometry uses the fact that
ratios of pairs of sides of triangles are functions of the angles. The
basis for mensuration of triangles is the right-angled triangle. The
term trigonometry means literally the measurement of triangles.
Trigonometry is a branch of mathematics that developed from simple
measurements.
