300 BC, also known as Euclid of Alexandria, was a Greek mathematician, often referred to as the "Father of Geometry".

Euclid deduced the principles of what is now called Euclidean geometry from a small set of axioms.

Euclid also wrote works on perspective, conic sections, spherical geometry, number theory and rigor.

Yes I'm agree euclid is the father of geometry.

Satendra said: (Apr 26, 2011)  
Yes Eulicd is the father of geometry.

I am not agree this statement. Pythagoras is the father of geometry.

Neha said: (Jul 2, 2011)  
Eulicd is the father of geometry. His Elements is one of the most influential works in the history of mathematics, serving as the main textbook for teaching mathematics (especially geometry) from the time of its publication until the late 19th or early 20th century. In the Elements, Euclid deduced the principles of what is now called Euclidean geometry from a small set of axioms...Pythagoras was not the father of geometry. He was an Ionian Greek philosopher, mathematician, and founder of the religious movement called Pythagoreanism. Pythagoras made influential contributions to philosophy and religious teaching in the late 6th century BC. He is often revered as a great mathematician, mystic and scientist, but he is best known for the Pythagorean theorem which bears his name.

Euclid enters history as one of the greatest of all mathematicians and he is often referred to as the father of geometry. The standard geometry most of us learned in school is called Euclidian Geometry.

Statue of Euclid in Oxford (Public Domain).

Euclid gathered up all of the knowledge developed in Greek mathematics at that time and created his great work, a book called 'The Elements' (3rd century 300 BCE).

This treatise is unequaled in the history of science and could safely lay claim to being the most influential non-religious book of all time.
