*Elements*. In addition to Euclid's own theories,*Elements*included work from mathematicians Thales, Pythagoras, Hippocrates, Theaetuetus, and Eudoxus, spanning the time period 600 BC - 300 BC. The name Euclid was popular during his lifetime, making it important to distinguish him from the rest of the Euclids, as Euclid of Alexandria. Euclid is known for his development of axioms (or assumptions, or common notions), which allowed mathematicians to make deductions about mathematical problems.**Quote:**The laws of nature are but the mathematical thoughts of God. **About Euclid of Alexandria**(click on link)
