what is something that i can say to replace is known?
im writing a paper for world history and i can not think of anything else to put for the sentence instead of "is known as," can you help?
To this day the tendon on the back of a person's ankle is known as the achilleas tendon.
I don't see anything wrong with using "is known as" in this sentence. You could change it to "is referred to as" or "is called", but those are not better or worse than what you have.
You DO have other problems, though.
First, remember that the word "I" is always capitalized. Always. If you practice writing correctly all of the time, then writing will be easier for you. It also won't make you appear to be lazy.
You need a comma after day.
You have misspelled Achilles tendon, and it should be capitalized.
