BC: Archimedes will always be remembered for his search for the truth in subjects such as science and math

FC: Archimedes: Journey to the truth

1: Archimedes was an inspiring Greek scientist and mathematician

2: One of the main innovations he was know for was developing the ratio of pi

3: This list includes some of Archimedes greatest achievements in his journey for the truth

4: Legend has it that the king of Sparta order a blacksmith to make a crown out of pure gold. After the crown was made, the king of Sparta thought that the crown wasn't pure gold and that the blacksmith replaced some of the gold with metal. Therefore, the king offered a reward to anyone who could find out if the crown was pure or not. While taking a bath, our hero, Archimedes discovered how to measure the density and solved the problem. Afterwards, the blacksmith was put to death and Archimedes was rewarded

5: Archimedes created a principle stating that the buoyant force acting on a submerged or floating object is equal to the weight of the displaced fluid

6: One of Archimedes inventions was the Archimedes screw, which transfered water from one place to another conveniently

7: An interesting invention made by Archimedes was called, "The Archimedes Claw." This invention was made to protect a city from a ship by having a lever with a hook on one side and a pulley on the other. The invention was made to sink ships by tipping them over

8: Reflection | There were many positives and negatives throughout my project. Primarily, mix book was an easy program to use, which allowed me to do more complex configuration with ease. However, a negative was technical difficulties as mix book encountered problems as the website didn't work at times. Plus, some of the picture didn't pop up when added to the project. Improvements for next time include lengthier paragraphs and including more inventions of Archimedes. Overall, I believe I had a great project that depicted Archimedes in many ways with his journey for the truth.
