Father of Geometry

The Greek mathematician Euclid, often referred to as the "Father of Geometry," wrote a comprehensive treatise called "Elements" around 300 BCE. This 13-volume work laid the foundation for the study of mathematics and geometry in the Western world. Remarkably, Euclid's "Elements" remained the primary mathematics textbook for almost 2,000 years, and its influence can still be felt today in the way we approach and understand geometry.
