(287 – 212 BC)

Archimedes was one of the greatest minds of ancient Greece.  He solved problems with solutions no man of his time had ever thought of before, finding the density of precious metals, the circumference of circles, and even made weapons that defended his city against the Romans.

Over the years, more and more of his writings have been discovered, making his genius increasingly evident to the worlds of science and mathematics.  We hope you enjoy learning about him!
