Pythagoras/ World War II

Pythagoras

Pythagoras was a Greek philosopher, and mathematician. Well known for his "discovery" of the Pythagorean Theorem. Although he was not he first to reconize this theory, evidence of the theory has been found to prove that the theory had been used century's before. Clay tablets used by the Babylonians varying 1000 years before Pythagoras show evidence of the theorem. There is also an ancient astronomical and mathematical treatise used by the Chinese supporting the use of the theorem. There are other forms of evidence supporting the theorem, but are not as clear as if it is the theorem or not, but does have the same principle.


Pythagoras had received credit for the Pythagorean theorem for proving it scientifically. Scientifically as in putting a lot more work into the theorem. Pythagoras had many contributions to the Pythagorean theorem. Although some people think that part of the contributions was his students work in the Pythagorean School. The Pythagorean School ended up being attacked and destroyed, but had lasted two century's after the attack because of the diversity of people spreading the knowledge.


Pythagoras did "discover" the theorem, although it has been used century's before his time. The Pythagorean theorem plays a huge roll in today's mathematics. The theorem has been used for millennia and is still being used by today's mathematicians.

World War II

World War II, is the worlds bloodiest conflict, having over a 20,000,000 death toll. The main cause of the war was when Germany invaded Poland on September 1st, 1931. France and Britain had declared war on Germany once the massage was delivered that Poland was being invaded. Germany and Italy were performing war like acts by taking over other smaller countries such as Austria. The United States had protested against these acts but had no impact. Germany had continuously made these war like acts, by not following the treaty of Versailles which furyiated the other countries who had signed the Treaty.


The Treaty of Versailles was created after the First World War with restrictions to Germany mainly. Germany was forced to sign the Treaty of Versailles. The Germans thought that the treaty was unfair, there was no positive side for the Germans. One of the main points of the treaty was a very powered low army for Germany, for Germany to not have the ability to start another war. With the German furher Adolf Hitler, instantly when the German furher was in the office he started rebuilding his army secretly, although he was not allowed.


A secret alliance was made for Germany called the "Rome-Berlin Axis Pact" for Germany to have a better chance of success in the war. The pact had included Germany and Italy. They had a good chance at the war. Although the pact was not successful. The war had created an image on every country that had fought, and was the largest war in history.
