Euclid's Elements Book I, Proposition 2: To place at a given point (as an extremity) a straight line equal to a given straight line
Let A be the given point, and BC the given straight line.
Thus it is required to place at the point A (as an extremity) a straight
line equal to the given straight line BC.

In its broad sense, education refers to any act or experience that has a formative effect on the mind, character, or physical ability of an individual...In its technical sense education is the process by which society, through schools, colleges, universities, and other institutions, deliberately transmits its cultural heritage--its accumulated knowledge, values, and skills--from one generation to another.
