The Elements organized by book volume.
The Elements , Books I - IV
Book I
Postulates and Common Notions
Book II
Book III
Book IV
Using the text of Sir Thomas Heath's translation of The Elements , I have graphically glossed Books I - IV to produce a reader friendly version of Euclid's Plane Geometry. The four books contain 115 propositions which are logically developed from five postulates and five common notions . In the first proposition, Proposition 1, Book I, Euclid shows that, using only the postulates and common notions, it is possible to construct an equilateral triangle on a given straight line. In the hundred fifteenth proposition, Proposition 16, Book IV, he shows that it is possible to inscribe a regular 15-gon in a circle. And along the way he develops many beautiful, interesting, captivating, and pleasing results. You are invited to read this part of one of the world's great books.
This presentation grew out of material developed for a mathematics course, Ideas in Mathematics , offered for liberal arts students at Furman. Every interested person, ninth grade student to ninety year old retiree, should be able to read most, if not all, of the material; that is the intended audience.

Elements Euclid (pronounced /ˈjuːklɪd/ EWK -lid Eukleidēs fl. 300 BC, also known as Euclid of Alexandria , was a Greek mathematician , often referred to as the "Father of Geometry". He was active in Alexandria during the reign of Ptolemy I (323–283 BC). His Elements is one of the most influential works in the history of mathematics , serving as the main textbook for teaching mathematics (especially geometry ) from the time of its publication until the late 19th or early 20th century. In the Elements , Euclid deduced the principles of what is now called Euclidean geometry from a small set of axioms . Euclid also wrote works on perspective conic sections spherical geometry number theory and rigor "Euclid" is the anglicized version of the Greek name ( Εὐκλείδης — Eukleídēs ), meaning "Good Glory".

Next: About this document
EUCLID Euclid is known to almost every high school student as the author of The Elements , the long studied text on geometry and number theory. No other book except the Bible has been so widely translated and circulated. From the time it was written it was regarded as an extraordinary work and was studied by all mathematicians, even the greatest mathematician of antiquity Archimedes, and so it has been through the 23 centuries that have followed. It is unquestionably the best mathematics text ever written and is likely to remain so into the distant future. Euclid Little is known about Euclid , fl. 300BC, the author of The Elements . He taught and wrote at the Museum and Library at Alexandria, which was founded by Ptolemy I. Almost everything about him comes from Proclus' Commentary , 4th cent AD. He writes that Euclid collected Eudoxus' theorems, perfected many of Theaetetus', and completed fragmentary works left by others. Euclid is said to have said to the first Ptolemy who inquired if there was a shorter way to learn geometry than the Elements: ...there is no royal road to geometry

  • Born: c. 325 B.C. Birthplace: Died: c. 265 B.C. Best Known As: Alexandrian mathematician and father of geometry
Euclid was a mathematician whose third century B.C. textbook Elements served as the western world's unchallenged standard for two millennia. Nothing is known about Euclid's life or physical appearance, and what little is known about his career comes from inferences in later sources. It is generally agreed that he taught geometry in Hellenistic Egypt, at Alexandria during the reign of Ptolemy I, between 305 and 285 B.C. He is credited with the thirteen volumes of Elements , a work that accumulated mathematical knowledge and codified it into a deductive system of proofs. Euclidean geometry was the geometry until the 19th century, when mathematicians began to challenge Euclid's assumptions about parallel lines, for example, when considering measurements over very large distances of, say, billions of light years.

Brown University Library possess a copy of each sixteenth-century translation of Euclid's Elements of Geometry into a modern language. These vernacular editions, grouped around the first Latin edition of 1482, are displayed in chronological sequence, from 1533 (Greek) to 1594 (Arabic). All copies are opened at Book I, proposition 47, "Pythagoras' Theorem," which asserts: "In right-angled triangles the square of the side opposite the right angle is equal to the sum of the squares of the sides containing the right angle." Most of the translations provide proof of this equation (a + b = c using a geometrical construction known as "the bride's chair."
Other first translations into modern European languages were published in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries: Dutch (1602), Russian (1739), Swedish (1744), and Danish (1745).

Euclid (ca. 326-ca. 265 BC)
Preclarissimus liber elementorum Euclidis perspicacissimi: in artem geometrie incipit ...
Venice: Erhard Ratdolt, [25 May] 1482.
Euclid's Elements of Geometry has been a primary mathematics text for more than two thousand years. It is a compilation of early Greek mathematical knowledge, synthesized and systematically presented by Euclid in ca. 300 BC. Books I-IV are devoted to plane geometry, Book V deals with the theory of proportions, and Book VI with the similarity of plane figures. Books VII-IX are on number theory, Book X on commensurability and incommensurability, Books XI-XII explore three dimensional geometric objects, and Book XIII deals with the construction of the five regular solids. Later non-Euclidian additions include, Book XIV, which is thought to have been contrbuted by Hypsciles (ca. 200 BC), and Book XV, which may have been added by John of Damascus, or by a 6th-century pupil of Isadoros of Miletos.

      Click to enlarge Gudenas Former Euclid mayoral candidate Edmund Gudenas should not have expected privacy after giving city officials a key to his home to install a burglar alarm, attorneys for the city are arguing.
      In 2009, Gudenas filed a lawsuit claiming police and housing inspectors illegally searched his rented Lake Shore Boulevard home during the 2007 mayoral campaign when he challenged Mayor Bill Cervenik.
      But city attorney James Climer is asking U.S. District Judge Christopher Boyko in Cleveland to dismiss the federal suit on the grounds that Euclid officials entered the property in good faith with probable cause to reset a malfunctioning alarm.
      At the time, the city was seeing a large increase in copper thefts from Euclid homes.

    Euclid for kids - when did Euclid live? where did he work? what's so important about Euclid?
    Nobody knows much about Euclid's life anymore - it is all forgotten. We only know that he worked in the city of Alexandria, in Egypt , for a while. There are no pictures of him. We can't even be sure he existed; Euclid could be a made-up name for a committee of mathematicians all working together. Either way, Euclid (or the people who called themselves Euclid) must have lived around 300 BC . He (or they) seems to have studied at Plato's Academy in Athens, where he learned some of the mathematics that is in his books. He probably knew Aristotle there. Like Anaxagoras before him, Euclid (YOU-klid) wanted to prove that things were true by using logic and reason. We still have copies of Euclid's books today, and they begin with basic definitions of a point and a line and shapes, and then go on to use geometry to prove, for instance, that all right angles are equal, that you can draw a straight line between any two points, and that two things which are both equal to the same thing are also equal to each other. Euclid's later books teach more advanced math, including how triangles and circles work, irrational numbers, and three-dimensional geometry.

La tradicin ha conservado una imagen de Euclides como hombre de notable amabilidad y modestia, y ha transmitido as mismo una ancdota relativa a su enseanza, recogida por Juan Estobeo: un joven principiante en el estudio de la geometra le pregunt qu ganara con su aprendizaje; Euclides, tras explicarle que la adquisicin de un conocimiento es siempre valiosa en s misma, orden a su esclavo que diera unas monedas al muchacho, dado que ste tena la pretensin de obtener algn provecho de sus estudios.
