Abstract

This article is focused on the way Archimedes’ works and inventions are covered in the academic curricula in Russia. The authors consider different education levels: from the elementary school to the higher technical education. Archimedes’ biography, his inventions and the laws discovered by him are described in a great number of educational literature, both for schoolchildren and for the students of technical universities. Archimedes’ works on hydrostatics, geometry, center of gravity, mechanics of simple machines (levers, pulleys) and the structure of the machines he created are described there.
