The ancient Egyptians displayed their considerable grasp of geometry in a number of ways. What is arguably the most obvious is the way geometry was used in the construction of the pyramids and other buildings and monuments. Certainly they laid out their cities using geometric principles.. It was Ah…mes (actually Ahmose), who left us with a fine approximation of the value of pi from that time. There are other examples, but none with the drama and "recognition value" of the geometric applications in religious architecture and construction first cited.. Wikipedia has a bit more posted, and a link to their article can be found below.. In other words they used geometry by building pyramids. (MORE)
It is very difficult to develop a writing system. At the time the Ancient Egyptians first used writing, nobody had thought of giving one symbol to each sound in the alphabet. They thought they needed a different symbol for each word. When that became too complicated, they used a combination of word-…symbols and sound-symbols. Their way of writing looks unnecessarily complicated to us, but it was an advanced and practical system under the circumstances. English is also an unnecessarily complicated writing system. We have 43 sounds represented by only 26 letters, and we don't even allocate those sounds consistently! (MORE)
the egyptians used papyrus to write on.papyrus was derived from a plant and it was used instead of paper Papyrus or paper reed (Cyperus papyrus) is a plant used by the ancient Egyptians to make paper much the same way as we do today.
the sun and the pyramids are big ones because they did not have geometry templates and such.
the ancient egyptians used metals, gold and wood for their tools they are like the cavemen but the cavemen never had gold
Putting dead people in. No seriously. They put the mummies of the people that could afford them into coffins.

They used grain or jewelry as money, trading and selling for other goods/items. Yes, but not until the Late period. Then, they used debens.
No the ancient Egyptian did not use fraction they used the calendar and the moon that was the only math the ancient Egyptians ever used.
They had to find out the toughness of the rocks that they had and sandstone was their choice.
Ancient Egyptians were meticulous about their appearances, and thusit is not surprising that they had mirrors. Women devoted mucheffort into bathing themselves and using perfume on their skin.They even had makeup.
They used silt, or black mud for farming their crops. It provided rich soil for the crops. They also used it to make mudbricks, which they used for buildings, clay for pottery, etc.

No Egyptian coins of ancient provenance have survived- therefore, it is assumed they had what amounted to a moneyless economy! Gold bracelets may well have served as rank insignia- like modern Naval rank stripes or campaign ribbons, but not money as such. There are no descriptions of any Egyptian co…ins in the Bible, for example. Shekels were Israeli, Talents Greek, and so on. (MORE)

The used boats to trade - like when they participated in the Silk Road, they fished, and the rich visited faraway places.
Yes, they did. A common misconception is that their science was mostly about mummification, but they understood math, engineering, astronomy, and a lot more.

Of what I know, all of the time..... But i think they started using modern weapons in the 18 or 1900's.... Alternatively, when they fought.

There is not exact date of when the history of the Egyptians started. However they have been around for many centuries.
The Pharaohs and officials of ancient Egypt would use them as shady retreats from the hot desert sun, and they were a source of water and hydration for all. Oases were often used as religious and sacred sites too.
Papyrus . It made boats . It made paper so the Egyptians could write in hieroglyphics . It was waterproof
The ancient civil Egyptian Calendar had a year that was 360 days long and was divided into 12 months of 30 days each, plus five extra days at the end of the year. The months were divided into three weeks of ten days each.
Often all the Pharoahs were buried in there so they can travel safly to the afterlife. Many friends and family of theres often droped goods such as food and mabye a little coat to keep them warm.

Hoes are still used by gardeners all over the world today. They are usually a long wooden handle with a small blade set at either in-line to the handle or at 90 degrees with a socket at the end - the blades can be many shapes. The variety with the 90 degree blade is usually termed a "mattock" (this …is the kind used in ancient Egypt and still used in many parts of Africa today). The ancient Egyptian word for "hoe" was written hnn in hieroglyphs. Mattocks have been used for thousands of years for digging over plots of land (they are less likely to injure the back than using a spade) and both mattocks and hoes have been used for weeding between rows of crops or taking out a long-narrow trench for planting leeks and other vegetables.

In Fact..... "NO".. By the traditional chronology of Egyptian history the 18 th dynasty ruled from about 1550 to 1320 BCE. According to Bible chronology the Exodus occurred about 1446 BCE. But there is no evidence from 18 th dynasty Egyptian records of a major disaster such as would have resulted… from the 10 devastating plagues that fell on Egypt, or of the destruction of the Egyptian army during this period.

Almost. The term cudgel refers to a short, heavy stick or club that is thicker at one end; often cut from blackthorn or other hedgerow hardwood timber. Ancient Egyptian overseers, tax collectors, police and other officials are shown holding sticks, but these are of uniform thickness called xt i…n hieroglyphs [the word simply means "wood"]. Beatings would certainly be given with these sticks, just as police in modern Arabic countries use their sticks today, but they would not normally be likely to break bones or knock a victim unconscious as a cudgel might do.

They used limestone for most of their pyramids and mostly pure brute strength to carry the limestone.
because they wanted to keep the essential importance in the body for when they get to the afterlife
The ancient Egyptian civilisation had knowledge of the wheel only in some applications: the potter's wheel (hieroglyphs nHp or qd ) and apparently a round stone or drum used for measuring linear distance. No wheeled vehicles, carts, barrows or any other form of transport were used until the La…te Period when such things were introduced by the Greeks and Romans. So no, there were no wheelbarrows.

Black ink was produced from soot mixed with the juice of the papyrus plant (acting as a gum or binder). Red ink was produced from very finely ground burned ochre, also mixed with papyrus juice. Ochre is a natural mineral pigment that is commonly found in the form of brownish-yellow clay. Toasting… or burning it makes it turn red. Scribes always carried quantities of both colours of ink, along with wood or stone palettes, a leather bag containing a pot of water and rush or reed pens. (MORE)
The ancient Egyptians believed that it was important to record and communicate information about religion and government. Thus, they invented written scripts that could be used to record this information. The most famous of all ancient Egyptian scripts is hieroglyphic. However, throughout three th…ousand years of ancient Egyptian civilisation, at least three other scripts were used for different purposes. Using these scripts, scribes were able to preserve the beliefs, history and ideas of ancient Egypt in temple and tomb walls and on papyrus scrolls. (MORE)
Ancient Egyptian culture was based entirely on continuity and conservatism as a result of the power of religion. Things did not change in any significant way for thousands of years because of this. The Egyptians personalised this idea in the goddess Ma'at (hieroglyphs mAat ), who stood for "doin…g the right thing, righteousness, truth, orderly management, justice, correctness". Doing anything other than what was mAat was effectively evil, sinful and wrong; this meant that the same things were always done in exactly the same way throughout Egyptian history - or until the influence of invaders took over.

To store and preserve pharaohs when they die, they always put each one of the pharaohs in a certain pyramid
The ancient Egyptians used propolis for treating a variety of diseases. Archeologists discovered this on vases and ornaments.
Hieroglyphs could be written in rows from right to left (the most common way), from left to right, or in columns vertically downwards. Scribes writing on papyrus would usually write in rows across the page - this was how pupils were taught to write on ostraca (broken pottery) before they were permit…ted to use papyrus. When writing inscriptions, particularly those with pictures and scenes accompanying them, scribes were taught to arrange the text in an artistic and pleasing way around the figures, animals and other elements. In a narrow, vertical space it makes sense to have the text in columns, but where there is plenty of space the text can be arranged in rows. Often, around doorways or in formal religious scenes, texts are arranged on each side reading in opposite directions like the wings of a bird - either in columns or rows. The idea was always to be tidy, compact and balanced. This was just a part of the ancient Egyptian idea of the "right way" to do things, embodied by the goddess Ma'at, which is why Egyptian hieroglyphs remained virtually unchanged for over 3,000 years.

The Egyptians made extensive use of bronze for everything from arrow heads to statuettes. They had several words for bronze, including biA and Hsmn . See links below for images:
Well, most of the time they just used them to lock up their children at night when they were doing "parent stuff ". But sometimes they used them to lock up their pets if they messed on the floor.
