Hipparchus' thoughts and teachings of Trigonometry
It was developed over the years by Pythagoras and the Pythagoreans, Plato, Aristole, Euclid, and others
Euclid complies, organizes and systematizes geometric ideas which had been discovered and proven into thirteen books, called ELEMENTS (, a book discussing Euclidean geometry. The Elements is a collection of 13 books of definitions, postulates, and axioms. It became the 3rd most popular book in the world, after the Koran and the Bible.)
Eratosthenes determines that the Earth is spherical and computes its diameter
Appolonius works on Conic Sections
Archimedes (287 BC - 212 BC) does work on circles, spheres, areas, infinite series, and other things
Brahmagupta created a formula for finding the area of a quadrilateral, with sides a,b,c,d, enclosed by a circle: A = The Sq. Root of (s-a)(s-b)(s-c)(s-d). S is the semiperimeter, is found by the formula s=(a+b+c+d)/2
Medieval Muslims synthesized algebra and geometry by placing points on a coordinate plane.

Gauss developed the Gauss method for adding large amounts of consecutive numbers when he was six. However, his most important creation is that of non-Euclidean geometry. Non-Euclidean geometry is geometry not based on the postulates of Euclid. This includes times when the parallel postulate isn’t true. Parallel Postulate – Through a given point not on a line, there is one and only one line parallel to it.
