Greek mathematician Archimedes, who lived from 287 to 212 B.C., was one of the greatest mathematicians in history. His reputation as a lover of mathematics and a problem solver has earned him the nickname the "Father of Mathematics." He invented or developed some of the mechanical systems that we use today, and he lived a life of service to mathematics and his native city-state of Syracuse.
