Pythagoras has been widely regarded as the first true mathematician. He established the Pythagorean school, whose doctrine was that mathematics ruled the universe and their motto was “All is number”.
We all know the Pythagorean theorem, a fundamental relation in geometry among the three sides of a right triangle. The theorem states that the square of the hypotenuse (the side opposite the right angle) is equal to the sum of the squares of the other two sides.
This theorem has found its usage in mathematics and life in so many ways from the day 1.This documentary focuses on Pythagoras, and how his discoveries in mathematics have transcended through history.
When you think of important ancient civilization, Ancient Greece and Ancient Rome are on top of the list. Egypt is right up there too, but rarely someone mentions the Sumeria...
