The ancient Greeks, in common with other contemporary civilisations, knew about arithmetic and geometry. Then they developed the idea of proof in mathematics, and everything changed. Mathematics became the standard of truth, useful in uncovering the causes of natural phenomena.

Discover the truth about Pythagoras and the Theorem.
