Isaac Newton was the greatest English mathematician of his generation. He laid the foundation for differential and integral calculus and did extensive work on graviton. Newton was born in 1642, in a manor house in Lincolnshire, England. His father had died two months before his birth. Isaac’s mother, Hannah Ayscough, remarried a man named Barnabas Smith, who helped raise Isaac. Isaac attended the village school in Woolsthorpe, went to free Grammar school in Grantham, and he went to Trinity College at Cambridge University for his collage education. During his three years attending Trinity College, Newton had to pay his tuition by waiting tables and cleaning rooms for the fellows (faculty) and the wealthier students. In the course of Newton’s attendance at Trinity, Europe had a terrible disease called the plague, which was spreading all across the area. There was so much fear of this disease spreading among the students and faculty, that the university had no choice but to close. Newton returned home, but could not return to school for another two years. Upon returning to school Newton began his studies on mathematics and physics.

Newton’s Mathematics skills helped him succeed into creating different formulas. Newton had worked on infinitesimal calculus and classified the method on cubic plane curves. He was just 24 years old when he first invented the method on calculus. It took over a year to accomplish this task with the help of his partner Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz. Newton had laid the foundation for schools programs on calculus. Later on he discovered the binomial theorem, which leads into finding the slopes of curves and areas under curves a lot easier. In addition to binomial theorem, he also found that all cubic’s can be showed by five divergent cubic parabolas.

...Mathematicians all over the world contributed to its development, but the two most recognized discoverers of calculus are Isaac Newton and Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz. Although the credit is currently given to both men, there was a time when the debate over which of them truly deserved the recognition was both heated and widespread. Evidence also shows that Newton was the first to establish the general method called the "theory of fluxions" was the first to...

...his early life experiences and with the knowledge left by his predecessors, Sir Isaac Newton was able to develop calculus, natural forces, and optics. From birth to early childhood, Isaac Newton overcame many personal, social, and mental hardships. It is through these experiences that helped create the person society knows him as in this day and age. The beginning of these obstacles started at birth for Newton. Isaac was born premature on Christmas...

...Isaac Newton: A Great Philosopher
Isaac Newton is one of the many scientists who have made science and this world what it is today. Newton has 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....

Isaac Newton
Isaac Newton made a multitude of discoveries that are still relevant in today’s academia. Many people have referred to him as one of the most important scientist that has ever lived. He is mostly known by his Theory of Universal Gravity and laws of motion, Newton’s laws, but he also influenced the areas of math and optics. Newton had a passion for alchemy and astrology. Today Newton’s laws of motion and gravity theory are...

...Sir Isaac Newton
I am Sir Isaac Newton. 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...

The Life and Works of Sir Isaac Newton
Sir Isaac Newton, (1642-1727), mathematician and physicist, was one of the greatest scientific minds of all time. Sir Isaac Newton was born at on January 4th (December 25th old calendar) at Woolsthorpe, a farmstead, in Lincolnshire. Woolsthorpe is the place where he worked on his theory of light and optics. This is also believed to be the site where Newton...

...Isaac Newton was an English mathematician
and physicist, considered one of the greatest
scientists in history. He made important
contributions to many fields of science. His
discoveries and theories laid the foundation for
much of the progress in science. Newton was one
of the inventors of a mathematics called calculus.
He also solved the mysteries of light and optics,
formulated the three laws of motion, and derived
from them the law of...

...The Life and Times of Issac Newton
In 1642 on Christmas Day an English mathematician, astronomer, and natural philosopher was born in Woolsthorpe, Lincolnshire, England. Baby Isaac was born so premature that is was said he could fit into a quart pot.
Newton's father who was a yeoman farmer died a few moths before Isaac was born. It was said that Isaac was to carry on the paternal farm when old enough. When Isaac was three his mother, Hannah Ayscough, married a clergyman...
