The thesis presents the greatest discoveries of the Greek mathematician before Euclid. The ancient Greeks greatly influenced science, especially mathematics, and their influence is visible even today. About 500 BC a significant turn in mathematics appeared as the influence of the Pythagoreans changed it into an abstract science in which claims have to be proven. In the first chapter of the thesis we present biographical information about Thales and his contribution to mathematics. In the second chapter we meet Pythagoras and his followers - the Pythagoreans. In the third chapter, we describe how the ancient Greek mathematicians tried to solve three classical problems of ancient Greek mathematics. Furthermore, in the fourth chapter deals with other ancient Greek mathematicians of the time, including Zeno and Eudoxus. The thesis concludes with a description of the application of these discoveries in modern mathematics education, with emphasis on the discussion of similarities and differences of the ancient Greek and modern approach.
