### Current Events Presentation:Aristotle

By Juan Maciel

Period 10

• He was born in Stagira, which is located in Northern Greece.

• He lived from 384 to 322 BC.

• He was the best student come out of The Academy, which was a school designed by Plato.

• He studied here for 20 years of his life.

• He later started his own school in Athens called the Lyceum.

• He created a method of deductive logic that would contribute not only to math, but other subjects.

• His method of reasoning is most apparent in Geometry and concrete things of that sort.

• His ideas influenced Western methods of thinking and deduction.

• Here are a few examples of things deducible by his method of reasoning. These are quoted from here.

• “In a given circle equal chords form equal angles with the circumference of the circle”

• “The angles at the base of an isosceles triangle are equal”

• “The circle encompasses the greatest area for a given circumference”

• “The external angles of a polygon equal 4 right angles” (Or 360°)

• “The equal sides of an isosceles triangle are each greater than the altitude of the triangle drawn from the angle formed by the equal sides”
