### What is Euclid?

Euclid is a WHO. Euclid of Alexandria was a Greek mathematician, often referred to as the "Father of Geometry". He was active in Alexandria during the reign of Ptolemy I - approximately 330 B.C. to 260 B.C.

Many scholars worked and taught in Alexandria, and that's where Euclid wrote *The Elements*.
*The Elements* is divided into thirteen books which cover plane geometry, arithmetic and number theory, irrational numbers, and solid geometry.

*Euclid* is a short geometry primer that includes a few of the most basic and well known principles of plane geometry with emphasis on practical use, enjoyment, and beauty.

The topics are presented in simple, clear, visual, informal terms; no attempt is made to be "mathematically rigorous." Each topic includes a self quiz and a final exam is offered at the end of "the course".

*Euclid* is an apps project of *Ms Math Master* that includes elementary lesson drills and simple puzzles.
