  • Art and Architecture
  • Alexander the Great was able to unleash changes throughout the Mediterranean and The middle east world that would last for centuries. Alexander's biggest accomplishment was spreading Greek culture all over the known world. He did this by conquering Persia which was one of Greece's biggest enemies at the time than creating trade to spread and mix Greek and other cultures with one another. Also, Alexander was able to give women more rights and make them more equal to men.
  • Math and Science
  • In approximately 400 B.C. a Greek physician by the name of Hippocrates studied illnesses and looked for their cures. The oath that he used would set the ethical standards for many doctors yet to come. The oath talked about helping patients to the best of your own ability and not refusing any patient that you could help, but it also stressed keeping the privacy of your patients.
  • Architecture and art was made to be much bigger and more intricate than it was in old Greece. Alexander and the Hellenistic cities wanted to portray themselves as godlike monarchs in this new and upcoming world.
  • A mathematician by the name of Pythagoras derived a formula to calculate the relationship between the sides of a right triangle and this formula was (A2+B2=C2). Using math an astronomer named Aristarchus argued that Earth rotated on an axis and that it rotated around the Sun, and this theory was called heliocentric. Another astronomer Eratosthenes proved that the Earth was round and he found its circumference used math. The most famous astronomer Archimedes used physics to create inventions.
