Archimedes was a mathematician that developed a method of measuring the volumes of irregular shapes. Pythagoras discovered a way to find the missing length in a right angle triangle.

Democracy- The greeks invented the original voting system, writing their votes on a broken piece of pottery, an early version of writing on ballets.

Theater- Greek theater is still a large part of study among drama students today. With masks and costumes meant to be visible from far away greek theater grabs attention. It tells stories in a way oral communication cannot and is the foundation of movies and television today.
