Isaac Newton and Gottfried Leibniz introduced Calculus to the world. It is the math of motion and change, and as such, its invention required the creation of a new mathematical system, hence it is broadly used in all fields of engineering, sports, biology, economics, medicine etc. Also its just generally useful in life excluding academics.

Calculus provides the language of economics and the means by which economists solve problems. Calculus is especially significant in illustrating what a leading economist calls a key principle of economics. Calculus focuses heavily on functions and derivatives. In economic research they often examine functional relationships for example relationship between the dependent variable income and various predictors, or independent variables, such as education and experience. Its benefit in economics is that when determining marginal revenues and costs, it can help business managers maximize their profits and measure the rate of increase in profit that results from each increase in production. As long as marginal revenue exceeds marginal cost, the firm increases its profits. And its significance is it provides a means for determining the amount of interest paid over the life of a loan.

In engineering in particular, it is used to relate position, velocity and acceleration etc. Electrical engineers apply the principles of calculus to determine the length of electrical wire needed to hang wire in a curved, catenary pattern between two hydro towers. When roads are constructed, particularly any with a curve or turn, engineers must take into account the slope of the curve, it’s possible tangents and the potential speed of vehicles as they travel around the curve to ensure safe speed limits are posted and the road is built with the safest conditions in mind.

Basically, Calculus is the fundamental tool of maths that is applied to the real world. The invention of the Calculus was...

...GottfriedLeibnizGottfried Wilhelm von Leibniz was born in 1646 to Catharina Schmuck, an extremely religious being, and Friedrich Leibniz, a moral philosophy professor at Leipzig. Gottfried grew up with a religious and moral value set environment. Those values were an important contribution to Gottfried’s philosophy and life in the future. Leibniz was a German philosopher and mathematician. With Leibniz’s ideas and theories, he became a prominent figure in mathematics and was a major mathematician that greatly contributed to calculus.
Leibniz’s contribution to the invention of infinitesimal calculus was monumental and is widely recognized as modern mathematics starting point. Leibniz’s Nova Methodus pro Maximis et Minimis, itemque Tangentibus… in Acta Eruditorum, in 1684, published Leibniz’s details of his ideas of differential calculus. The paper contained the d notation, the derivatives of powers rule, the quotient rule, and product rule. But the journal did not contain any proof of the ideas. In Acta Eruditorum, a paper was published by Leibniz which dealt with calculus integrals and had the first appearance of the integral notation. The next year Newton’s Principia appeared and contained Newton’s ‘method of fluxions’ but Newton failed to get it published in 1671 which resulted in a...

...Sir IsaacNewton and Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz
Sir IsaacNewton and Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz are two of the most supreme
intellects of the 17th century. They are both considered to be the inventors
of Calculus. However, after a terrible dispute, Sir IsaacNewton took most of
the credit.
Gottfried WilhelmLeibniz (1646-1716) was a German philosopher, mathematician,
and statesman born in the country of Leipzig. He received his education at the
universities of Leipzig, Jena, and Altdorf. He received a doctorate in law. He
devoted much of his time to the principle studies of mathematics, science, and
philosophy.
Leibniz's contribution in mathematics was in the year 1675, when he discovered
the fundamental principles of infinitesimal calculus. He arrived at this
discovery independently at the same time along with the English scientist Sir
IsaacNewton in 1666. However, Leibniz's system was published in 1684, three
years before Newton published his. Also at this time Leibniz's method of
notation, known as mathematical symbols, were adopted universally. He also
contributed in 1672 by inventing a calculating machine that was capable of
multiplying, dividing, and extracting square roots. All this made him to be
considered a...

...Sir Issac Newton and Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz Controvery
Sir Issac Newton was born to a poor family in Woolsthorpe, England on January 4,1642. At the time of Newton's birth, England had not adopted the Gregorian calendar and therefore his date of birth was recorded as Christmas Day, December 25 1642. He attended Trinity College in Cambridge, England only after it became apparent that he would never be a successful farmer. While there, he took interest in mathematics, optics, physics, and astronomy.
While a student, Newton was forced to take a two year hiatus when plague closed Trinity college. At home, he continued to work with optics, using a prism to separate white light, and became the first person to argue that white light was a mixture of many types of rays, rather than a single entity. He continued working with light and color over the next few years, and published his findings in “Optics” in 1704.
Disturbed by the problems with telescopes at the time, he invented the reflecting telescope, grinding the mirror and building the tube himself. Relying on a mirror rather than lenses, the telescope presented a sharper image than refracting telescopes at the time. Modern techniques have reduced the problems caused by lenses, but large telescopes such as the use mirrors.
As a student, Newton studied the most advanced mathematical texts of his time. While on hiatus, he continued...

...IsaacNewton: A Great Philosopher
IsaacNewton is one of the many scientists who have made science and this world what it is today. Newtonhas contributed to modern science in more ways than one. Many consider Isaac the greatest philosopher of all time. There is no doubt that Newton deserves to be recognized as the founder of modern science. He’s story is truly one that will be known and remembered for many years to come.
IsaacNewton was born in Woolsthorpe, England during the late winter in the year of 1642. Newton lived a very normal childhood for the children of that time (Anderson 26). Isaac was considered to be among the higher known people in the town and was actually the one in waiting to become the next king. But at the age of 13, Newton, had been banned to become king by the parliament (John 12). Later on in Newton’s life he attended Trinity College Cambridge, which was regarded by many one of the elite colleges at the time (Anderson 31). After graduating, Isaac, then became a professor at the same college where he taught Alchemy, which was known to be his favorite kind of science (Snider 4). After only two years of teaching, Newton’s mom had died which caused him to surrender his teacher position, which left him jobless (John 13)....

...Sir IsaacNewton
I am Sir IsaacNewton. I am a mathematician and physicist, and one of the foremost scientific intellects of all time. I was born at Woolsthorpe, near Grantham in Lincolnshire, in 1642. I entered Cambridge University in 1661; then was elected at Fellow of Trinity College in 1667, then Lucasian Professor of Mathematics in 1669. I remained at the university, lecturing in most years, until 1696. Of these Cambridge years, in which I was at the height of my creative power, I singled out 1665-1666 as the prime of my age for invention. I learned geometry at school, even though I always spoke of myself as self-taught. I advanced through studying the writings of William Oughtred and John Wallis, and of Descartes. Newton made contributions to all branches of mathematics studied, but I’m especially famous for my solutions to the contemporary problems in analytical geometry of drawing tangents to curves (differentiation) and defining areas bounded by curves (integration). Not only did I discover that these problems were inverse to each other, but I discovered general methods of resolving problems of curvature, embraced in my "method of fluxions" and "inverse method of fluxions", respectively equivalent to Leibniz's later differential and integral calculus. I used the term "fluxion" (from Latin meaning "flow") because I imagined a quantity "flowing" from one magnitude to another....

...IsaacNewton
In this essay the life of IsaacNewton is uncovered. It goes into depth about where he lived, where he moved, his family and who he lived with. Within the first few paragraphs you will learn about his education, lifestyle, and family. He had a challenging childhood as his mother was in and out of his life and was widowed two times. He also went in and out of school although he never stopped learning and excelling himself. In the second set of paragraphs his multiple accomplishments are unfolded. He did a lot of work within mathematics, science, religion, etc. He received many high achieving positions such as a Fellow of Trinity College and Lucasian Professor of Mathematics. He created a whole new world for others to explore and unwrap. His great accomplishments within mathematics and science led to the expansion of scientists way of thinking. The last set of paragraphs explains his laws of motion, what they are, and an example as well as how they connect with his Universal Law of gravity. IsaacNewton was a very influential person in history that is now looked at as the creator of calculus and a key person in the creation of physics. Now it is your turn to take a deeper look into Newton growing up, discovering new ideas, his accomplishments and what he found.

... IsaacNewton is considered to be one of the greatest theoretical and scientific minds of our world. The year that Galileo died, Isaacnewton was born in Woolsthorpe Manor, his family’s estate, in Lincolnshire, England on January 4th, 1643 as a premature baby. Isaac was very frail and sickly. The women and housemaids didn’t even hurry to bring medicine to help him because nobody expected him to survive. But miraculously he did survive. Isaac’s father, IsaacNewton Sr., had died few months before his birth. His mother, Hannah Ayscough had married an older minister named Barnabas Smith when Isaac was barely three. Barnabas didn’t want to raise a child that wasn’t his, so Hannah abandoned poor little Isaac to live with his maternal grandparents while she moved in with her new husband. Barnabas and Hannah had three children, two daughters Hannah Smith Pilkington and Mary Smith, and a son, Benjamin Smith. Seven years later, when Isaac was ten, Hannah moved back into Woolsthorpe Manor with her three children because of Barnabas’s death. Isaac’s mother had always ignored him before she moved back. Isaac’s childhood was very bitter and lonely. The only
Isaac’s imaginative mind had started wondering and discovering things ever since he was little. At the age of five Isaac went to...
