Pythagoras

Pythagoras
  • Born about 569 BC in Samos, IoniaDied about
    475 BC

Pythagoras
  • Pythagoras of Samos is often described as the
    first pure mathematician. He is an extremely
    important figure in the development of
    mathematics yet we know relatively little about
    his mathematical achievements. Unlike many later
    Greek mathematicians, where at least we have some
    of the books which they wrote, we have nothing of
    Pythagoras's writings. The society which he led,
    half religious and half scientific, followed a
    code of secrecy which certainly means that today
    Pythagoras is a mysterious figure.

4
Pythagorean Theorem

Pythagoras Theorem claims that the sum of

two small squares equals the area of the large

square using the sides
of a scalene Triangle.
5
Music
  • Pythagoras (6th C. B.C.) observed that when
    the blacksmith struck his anvil, different notes
    were produced according to the weight of the
    hammer.Number (in this case "amount of weight")
    seemed to govern musical tone. . . . .

6
Music
  • Further, he observed that if you take two
    strings in the same degree of tension, and then
    divide one of them exactly in half, when they are
    plucked the pitch of the shorter string is
    exactly one octave higher than the longer

7
Pythagoras and what he discovered
  • Pythagoras was a Greek mathematician in 569 BC
  • He discovered Theorem, by calculating the side of
    a scalene triangle.
  • He also discovered the pitch of music and sound.
