Sir Isaac Newton was born on January 4, 1963. In his early years, he attended school in Lincolnshire at King's School. Briefly, his mother took him out of school with hopes of him becoming a farmer, but Newton failed miserably and went back to school to get his basic education. His uncle pressed his mother to allow Newton to go to college at Cambridge's Trinity College. At first, he was taught the standard curriculum, but Newton wanted more. This would turn out to be the turning point of Newton's life! Newton was not married because he was a member of Cambridge's Trinity and was not allowed. Therefore, he never broke this commitment. His field of study was physics. Newton was awarded many positions and medals including, President of the Royal Society, an associate of the French Academy of Science, A MP.(Member of Parliament) for Cambridge University, Warden of the Royal Mint, Fellow of Trinity College in Cambridge, and the Lucasian professor of Mathematics. Sir Isaac didn’t win a Nobel Prize because they first awarded in 1901 and he died in 1721. Sir Isaac Newton impact the lives of others by formulating the theory of universal gravity, having invented calculus, creating the law of motion and the law of gravity, and making the first reflecting telescope.
