If I were Aristotle, I would wonder…

  1. How can I use mathematics to prove things in nature?
  2. How can I expand my knowledge of the known world?
  3. How can I make people see the world differently?

The greatest challenge Aristotle faced was…

Being a strong believer of his new philosophical views when his teacher was strongly against his beliefs

He overcame that challenge by…

Keeping with his beliefs and not giving into peer pressure

Our favorite quote by Aristotle

“The whole is greater than the sum of its parts.”

Aristotle’s 3 greatest achievements:

  1. Using mathematics to prove whether something is true or false
  2. Creating many theories of life and human nature
  3. Defining infinity, not as a number, but as a possible outcome

Three of Aristotle’s personality traits:

  1. Philosophical
  2. Patient
  3. Analytical

3 ways that I am just like him:

  1. I always stop to think before I act
  2. I use math outside of the classroom
  3. I think outside the box
