5. Achievements in mathematics and geography by the Islamic civilization dominated most of the Mediterranean after

Crusades and trade, influencing the European Renaissance. 
 
Content Elaborations 
In grade six, students learned general knowledge about world 
religions, including Islam, as they relate to the overall culture 
of a region. This year, the study focuses on the impact of 
Islamic civilization as it spread throughout most of the 
Mediterranean in the period following the fall of Rome and its 
later impact on the European Renaissance. 
 
Muslims made contributions in anatomy, physiology and 
pharmacology, and in medicine with the creation of a medical 
textbook. Islamic advances in astronomy aided their 
development of a calendar and improvement of the astrolabe. 
 
They helped establish chemistry as a distinct branch of 
science and trigonometry as a distinct branch of 
mathematics. Muslims produced world maps and, later, 
served as navigators for European explorers. 
 
Islamic achievements spread when Muslim rulers conquered 
most of the Middle East and parts of southern Europe, and 
from the trade that grew as a result of the Crusades. 
 
As the golden age of Islam was waning in the 15th
century, its impact on learning and culture was evident in the Italian 
Renaissance that began to flourish.
