The Islamic civilization had many amazing and renounding achievements and advancements that influence what the world is like today. They were one of the world 's best Mathematicians, Astrologers and architects, that is what allowed them to make these amazing contribution to the world. And that also makes them one of the most advanced civilization of that time.

Hellenistic science was the beginning steps toward what we know about the universe and the world around us today. The Hellenistic age itself allowed for Greek tradition, culture, and language to advance beyond Greece and into the world. The Hellenistic empires contributed in the combining of the societies and economies in the outside regions. The sciences that received the uppermost attention in the Hellenistic Age were medicine, mathematics, astronomy, geography, and physics.

The classical Greeks contributed to, and influenced Western Civilization in several ways. For example, the classical Greeks contributed in many ways in the areas of the arts, both in visual pictures and physical sculptures.

This form of math was created by Al-Khwarizmi, he studied Indian sources and later wrote a textbook about this type of math (Document 4). Muslim scholars also made many advances in trigonometry, astronomy and mapmaking. They developed ways to study astronomy and to create maps, by using trigonometry and other forms of math (Document 5). There was also great advances in science, science was used in many different parts of Islamic culture, such as religion were "The faithful... relied on" "astronomers to calculate the times of prayer and the direction on Mecca" (Document 1).
