It's entirely possible a life of Pythagoras states that : But Eratosthenes says, as Favorinus quotes him, in the eighth book of his Universal History, that this philosopher, o…f whom we are speaking, was the first man who ever practised boxing in a scientific manner, in the forty-eighth Olympiad, having his hair long, and being clothed in a purple robe; and that he was rejected from the competition among boys, and being ridiculed for his application, he immediately entered among the men, and came off victorious. And this statement is confirmed among other things, by the epigram which Theaetetus composed:Stranger, if e'er you knew Pythagoras, Pythagoras, the man with flowing hair, The celebrated boxer, erst of Samos; I am Pythagoras. And if you ask A citizen of Elis of my deeds, You'll surely think he is relating fables. (MORE)

Pythagoras (c. 580-500 B.C.) was an ancient Greek philosopher who was interested in numbers and their meanings. He discovered the relationships between mathematics and mus…ic, proposing that sounds and their relationships with other sounds can be measured using numbers. He also proposed that the Earth is a sphere, that the Earth, Moon, and stars revolve around the Sun, and that astronomy (the study of stars, planets, and heavenly bodies) could be written as mathematical sentences called equations. Pythagoras and his followers used lines, triangles, and squares made out of pebbles to represent numbers. Today Pythagoras is best remembered for the Pythagorean theorem: The square of the length of the hypotenuse (the side of a right triangle opposite the right angle) of a right triangle equals the sum of the squares of the lengths of the triangle's other two sides.

Euclid was a Greek mathematician living in the 4th century BC who taught at the university in Alexandria, Egypt. He became known as the Father of Geometry many years after publishing a thirteen volume work called Euclid's Elements in which he compiled and explained all the known mathematics of his time. Euclid's Elements is the world's most famous mathematical work and is also the oldest continuously used mathematical textbook. It is the foundation of the geometry still being taught in schools almost two and one-half millennium after Euclid's death. (MORE)
