1. Compare Indian Ocean and Atlantic Ocean maritime trade from 770 - 1450. Create a chart.
Trade in the Indian Ocean was safe and easy due to the Indian peninsula that stretches out into the middle of the ocean and provides a coastline to navigate along and coves that could be used by seafarers to get protection from storms. The monsoons helped navigation in the Indian Ocean because they were so predictable and could be used to the advantage of sailors or could be avoided and thus the sailing here was easier and less dangerous than anywhere else. The Atlantic Ocean maritime trade was not the center of trading the Indian Ocean was, due to the fact that it was largely unexplored. The most prevalent mariner groups in the Atlantic Ocean in the Middle Ages were the Vikings. In the act of sailing along the European coast they discovered many new lands such as Iceland in 770, Greenland in 982, and parts of North America in 986. Navigation was not a skill used by the Vikings. They found their way through by knowledge of the heavens, which made their travels easy for them.
2. In regards to maritime trade, list the four trends evident in the Latin West since 1000 that led to more European expansion AND list the two reasons why the Italian state did NOT take the lead in exploring the Atlantic.
1-the revival of urban life and trade
2-a struggle with Islamic powers for dominance of the Mediter-ranean that mixed religious motives with the desire fortrade with distant lands
3-growing intellectual curiosity about the outside world, and
4-a peculiarly Euro-pean alliance between merchants and rulers.
There were two reasons why Italian states did not take the lead in exploring the Atlantic. The ﬁrst was that the trading states of Venice and Genoa preferredto continue the system of alliances with the Muslims thathad given their merchants privileged access to the lucra-tive trade from the East. The second was that the ships of the Mediterranean were ill suited to the more violent weather of the Atlantic.
3. List the nautical achievements of the Portuguese.
Between 1415-1578, Portugal explored the Atlantic Ocean, discovering several Atlantic archipelagos like the Azores, Madeira, or Cape Verde, explored the African coast as well as colonizing selected areas of Africa, discovered an eastern route to India that rounded the Cape of Good Hope, discovered Brazil, explored the Indian Ocean and established trading routes throughout most of southern Asia, and sent the first direct European maritime trade and diplomatic missions to China and Japan.
4. Outline in timeline form the developments of Portuguese in West Africa and the Indian Ocean between 1470 - 1550.
1415 - Conquest of city of Ceuta in northern Africa
1419 - Madeira Islands re-discovered
1427 - Azores Islands discovered by Diogo Silves.
1433 - Duarte I becomes king.
1434 - Gil Eanes crosses the Cape Bojador exploration of the West African coast begins.
1438 - Afonso V of Portugal becomes king.
1444/1460 - Discovery and settling of Cape Verde islands.
1481 -Joao II becomes king.

5. List the effects (at least 8) of Spanish conquest of the Americas.
1-The Spanish conquests brought European civilization to the tribes of North and South America.
2-Disrupted the existing societies.
3-Lead to exploitation or enslavement in the civilizations existing there.
4-Disease wiped out a majority of the population.
5-The population was no longer solely Native American, but integrated with the Spanish.
6-Roman Catholic faith became part of their culture.
7-The Spanish language became used Latin America and some islands of the Caribbean.
8-A new hierarchy was established within the culture.
1. Compare the religious theories of Luther and Calvin.
Martin Luther's and Calvin's ideas are alike because they both agreed that religious authority rested on the Bible not the Pope and believed in a priesthood of all believers. Martin Luther and Calvin's ideas are also alike because both believed in St. Augustine's idea of predestination. Calvin did not believe that the Church should be ruled by the state, while Luther believed that it should.
2. Cite five reasons that make Charles V such a significant ruler.
1-The lottery of birth placed Charles at the center of a genealogical network that covered half Europe. His father, Philip, was Duke of Burgundy. His grandfather was Emperor Maximilian of Austria. His mother, Joanna, was daughter of Isabella and Ferdinand, Spain's Catholic monarchs.
2-The reign of Charles V coincides with the beginning of the Modern Age and is marked by the Renaissance, by the spread of printed material, the discovery of the Americas, and by the Reformation started by Martin Luther.
3-Through his mother, he would inherit Spain and the bloodstained kingdom of Naples as well.
4-Charles, archduke of Austria and King of Spain becomes Emperor Charles V, the most powerful ruler in Europe. As the King of Spain, Naples and Sicily, Emperor of the Holy Roman Empire, ruler of Flanders, the Netherlands and large areas of Central and South America, the sun virtually never set on Charles empire.
5-For the first time, Europe became the center of a world empire, unified under Charles V.
3. Compare and contrast absolutism and constitutionalism.
Absolutism is a centralized form of government where power lied solely in the monarch. While in constitutionalism, the government was controlled by more than just the monarch, and followed a set of rules and guidelines to govern the country with.
4. How did war in Europe change between 1500 - 1750?
It proved to Europe that armoured knights were not invincible. Up until this point armoured knights on horseback were seen to be the best soldiers in an army and undefeatable by infantry. English victories such as Crecy and Poitiers proved that common men (archers) could defeat mounted knights with the correct planning.
However, as it saw the rise of the English archer it also saw the demise as the French learnt how to defeat the weapon by charging quickly and by not engaging in open warfare.
The Hundred Years War also involved many different directions for warfare. It involved sieges, open battle and chevauee (double check) where the English pillaged the French lands of Brittany.
5. List the characteristics of the Dutch trade during this era.
The Dutch had large merchant and shipping fleets. In 1670, about ten per cent of Dutch adult males were sailors; - the Dutch had more ships than England, France, Germany, Portugal, Scotland, and Spain combined. They grew to become a major naval power and monopolized trade with Japan.
6. Compare the theories of Copernicus, Galileo, and Newton.
They all believed that the sun was at the center of our solar system.
COPERNICUS realized that the rising and setting of the Sun, Moon, and stars could be accounted for by a daily revolution of the Earth. Also, he found that if he put the Sun at the center of the planet's orbits he could simplify the number of epicycles from 80 in Ptolemy's system to a mere 34. Although epicycles do not exist, Copernicus' intuition was correct. His idea that the Earth and planets orbited about the sun became know as the "heliocentric theory."
GALILEO used the newly-invented telescope to make his own observations. He studied mountains and craters on the Earth's moon, the phases of Venus, and the moons of Jupiter. Particularly he noted that Venus at times appears to be a crescent, just as the Earth's moon does. All of these findings supported Copernicus' heliocentric theory.
NEWTON lived in England. Newton derived the law of gravitation between two masses. Since the Sun was the most massive object in the planetary system, all of the planets would naturally be attracted to it and revolve around it, in the same manner as the Moon revolves around the Earth. Newton eventually wrote about gravitation and the heliocentric theory in Principia Mathematica in 1687, at the prompting of another famous astronomer, Edmund Halley (1656-1742) . Halley used Newton's equations to predict that a comet seen in 1682 would return in 1758. The return of Halley's comet gave final proof to the heliocentric theory.
