History 2: Euclid

This children's history video teaches kids about the great mathematician and geometer Euclid and his creation of the axiomatic method in his 13 books of the "Elements." Since Euclid's time, the axiomatic method has become the standard way in which mathematics is done, as well as the more rigorous sciences.

Euclid's timeless work drove the rebirth of learning in the Italian Renaissance and inspired the greatest scientific minds of all time. Written over two thousand years ago, the Elements remains, to this day, an important part of the every learned person's education.
