This is a 34 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on Civilizations of East Asia - Chinese Discoveries & Inventions. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
Over the centuries, Chinese scholars and scientists studied engineering, mathematics, science, and medicine, among other subjects. Their studies led to scientific and technological progress that was often far ahead of advances in the rest of the world. Many of these advances took place during the Tang and Song Dynasties, and the influence of these advancements are still seen today.
One such invention was the magnetic compass, a device that aligns itself with the earth’s magnetic poles so that one end points north and the other south. By the Song Dynasty, the Chinese were using this type of compass to help them navigate on long voyages. People still use the same kind of device today.
The presentation covers the following:
