4 April 2015
This is a paper about the life and works of the phenomenal mathematician Archimedes.

A look at the different discoveries by Archimedes focusing on what he is most greatly known for – discovering the solution of pi. His approximation of pi between 3-1/2 and 3-10/71 was the most accurate of his time, and with this discovery he devised a new way to approximate square roots.
“Little known details remain about the life of Archimedes who was one of antiquity’s greatest mathematician, Archimedes. Most of the facts about Archimedes’ life come from a biography written by the Roman biographer Plutarch. What is known, is that he was born in Syracuse, Sicily in the year 287 B.C., and died in 212 B.C. at the age of 75 in Syracuse. I was able to come up with an astonishing amount of information on Archimedes for this paper. It seems that there is no end to his accomplishments, and I tried not to leave out any of them. ”
