Archimedes was a Greek mathematician, scientist, and astrologer who lived in Syracuse, Italy from 287 B.C. to 212 B.C. He was killed by a roman soldier when the Romans stormed Sicily. Archimedes developed many mathematical theorems and proofs. Archimedes also studied simple machines, like the lever, pulley, and screw, and found new and better ways for the machines to work. Archimedes has been considered the greatest mathematician, and scientist of all time, and many of his scientific discoveries are still used today.
