Pythagoras of Samos was born around 570 BC on the island Samos in Greece. Little to no records or documents were written during his life, creating controversy and lack of reliable biographical information. Through the writings of students and followers of Pythagoras, historians have been able to create some understanding of his early life. Pythagoras is said to be the son of Mnesarchus and Pythais. He was raised on a small island off the coast of present day Turkey. His father being a merchant brought Pythagoras on his travels and journeys. At a young age Pythagoras learned many things and soon become educated and smart. Also Pythagoras developed a love for poetry and learned many of Homers poems. In 535 BC, Pythagoras left Samos due to the…
Pythagoras is a greek mathematician and astronomer. He is best known for the Pythagorean theorem but is also known for other math related theories. He founded a group called the Pythagoreans, who also are credited to math related theories. He also has many astronomical theories, some proven and some disproven. Pythagoras was born around 570 BC in Samos, Greece. His dad was a traveling merchant, so his mom had to raise his siblings and him by herself most of the time but Pythagoras did travel…
Pythagoras, who was a well-known scientists, mathematician, and religious teacher, was born in 570 B.C. in the Island of Samos he passed away in 495 B.C. Most believe he committed suicide because of the attack on his society. Little was known about Pythagoras childhood, but certainly he was well educated. Among his teachers there was three philosophers, Thales, Anaximander, and Pherekydes, who influenced Pythagoras while he was young. The most important teacher was Pherekydes, who influenced…

Pythagoras was a Greek mathematician, philosopher, and the founder of the Pythagorean brotherhood. He spent his early years traveling throughout Egypt, learning about mathematics. After his travels, Pythagoras settled in a Greek colony in southern Italy named Croton. Pythagoras founded the Brotherhood of Pythagoreans which was a group dedicated to mathematics. Pythagoras is most…
The mathematician and philosopher, Pythagoras, was born in the 6th century BC in Samos. He is mostly known for his contributions to math. He invented the pythagorean theorem in his ancient days. Everything he knew was taught to him by teachers he knew in his early childhood. He then moved to egypt and spread his theories and knowledge to those who wanted to know about his theories. The theory he is mostly known for is the pythagorean theorem and it works like this; it states that the hypotenuse…
Pythagoras Pythagoras of Samos is often referred to as the first mathematician. Although he studied multiple principles of math and made other discoveries of such he is most well known for proving that the trigonometry basis, Pythagorean Theorem, exists. In fact the Pythagorean Theorem is named after him! Other contributions he made or discovered are; the sum of the angle is a triangles equal to two right angles, construction figures of a given area with geometrical algebra, discovery of…
Pythagoras Born: about 569 BC in Samos, Ionia Died: about 475 BC He is named the first mathematician. Pythagoras was born near the Ionian coast of the Mediterranean, in the rich merchant family. After living in Egypt for 22 years and in Babylon for 12 years, he gained deep knowledge in natural and mathematical sciences. He gathered around a group of like-minded people, mostly aristocrats, and created a secret circle. The members of the circle studied various issues of philosophy and mathematics.…
Pythagoras was the ancient Greek philosopher and mathematician who lived in the sixth century B.C. In mathematics, the Pythagorean theorem is known as a fundamental relation in Euclidean geometry among the three sides of a right triangle. This theorem was named after him. For example, a right triangle is a triangle with a right angle; square corners adjacent sides also called square corners of the triangle beside it; hypotenuse is the side opposite the right angle. In the figure below, a and b…

Dear 7th Grade student; You probably don’t know who Pythagoras is and you probably don’t care. Well, after this, you will care. But if you do know who he is by some off chance, great! To you, this will just be a refresher, while for some this is completely new. So, Pythagoras was a mathematical genius. He was respected by all who followed him. But he was feared by most because of his “powers”. Those who followed him were part of a cult or following, and they were serious about what they did.…
