Sir Isaac Newton was, among many other things, a physicist, mathematician and astronomer. Newton was born was born 3 months after the death of his father, on January 4th of 1643 in Woolsthorpe, Lincolnshire, England. Known commonly as the Father of Modern Science, Sir Newton’s discoveries were plenty and spanned over many different concentrations in science that he most certainly deserves the title. He helped develop the field of calculus as well as the laws of light and color and the laws of gravity and planetary motion. Sir Isaac Newton is responsible for planting the seed for many of the ideas and theories that are being developed still today.

After a rudimentary education in local schools, Newton was sent at the age of 12 to the King's School in Grantham. In 1661, at the age of 19, he entered Trinity College, Cambridge where Newton’s interest in the laws of the environment we live in began, pertaining to mathematics and sciences. After receiving his bachelor’s degree, Newton began his master’s but the college closed and he returned to Woolsthorpe and performed some basic experiments and developed his system of calculus. He also started his thinking on optics and universal gravity. He then returned to Cambridge in 1667 and quickly completed the requirements for his Master’s degree. Newton became Lucasian professor of mathematics at age 27 and stayed at Trinity in that capacity for 27 years.

My favorite research and accomplishment of Sir Isaac Newton is his work, magnum opus, Philosophiae naturalis principia mathematica, to state the full title. Commonly know as Newton’s Principia, it was published first in Latin in 1687 and only took Newton 18 months to complete. The Principia promptly established Newton as the leading scientist of his time in the Western world. In this work he demonstrated for the first time that celestial bodies follow the laws of dynamics. He formulated the law of universal gravitation and gave mathematical solutions and support to...

3. IsaacNewton once said, “I have stood on the shoulders of giants.” Explain this statement and explain how Newton was the product of time and circumstance.
When IsaacNewton said, “I have stood on the shoulders of giants,” he demonstrated that he knew his place in the scientific community. In the relay race of astronomic science,Newton was the last of the runners to be passed the baton, and he, adding to the work of many great scientific minds before him, sprinted the home stretch.
Newton understood that his findings weren’t entirely his; they merely, but greatly, added to and reinforced the claims of past scientists. Before the Revolution in Astronomy, the Aristotelian-Ptolemaic System of the Universe was accepted by all and questioned by none. Abnegation of this theory all started with Nicholas Copernicus. He was the first to propose a heliocentric universe in place of a previously accepted geocentric one. This means that he got the ball rolling for the argument that the sun was the center of the universe, rather than the earth. His book, On Revolutions of Heavenly Spheres, was published at his death. The astronomer was afraid of living through the repercussions of such a controversial claim. As all authoritative figures and church leaders interpreted from the Bible that the earth was the center of...

...SirIsaacNewton 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 universal gravitation. Newton
was born on December 25, 1642, at
Woolsthorpe, near Grantham in Lincolnshire.
When he was three years old, he was put in care
of his Grandmother. He then was sent to grammar
school in Grantham. Then later he attended Trinity
College at the University of Cambridge. Newton
ignored much of the established curriculum of the
university to pursue his own interests; mathematics
and natural philosophy. Proceeding entirely on his
own, he investigated the latest developments in
mathematics and the new natural philosophy that
treated nature as a complicated machine. Almost
immediately, still under the age of 25, he made
fundamental discoveries that were instrumental in
his career science. The Fluxional Method,
Newton's first achievement was in mathematics.
He generalized the methods that were being used
to draw tangents to curves and to calculate the...

...Biography of a Mathematician: SirIsaacNewtonSirIsaacNewton has made an impact on scientists to this day. Even though his discoveries derived in the late 1600s, we are still affected today in the present. The ideals and theorems he sought out still hold legitimate centuries after his time. With the information laid out for them, a scientists using his theories can improve their research to achieve fame themselves. “Some would say that he was the greatest product of the Enlightenment, the explosion of intellectual knowledge that occurred in his century” (Universe Today). What did IsaacNewton discover to go down in history as prestige in both the historical and modern world?
According to BBC, Newton was an English physicist and mathematician, and the greatest scientist of his era. However, before it’s understood why SirIsaac Newtown became so famous, it is very important to know how he got to that point. By doing so, understanding his early and later life experiences is key. “IsaacNewton was born on 4 January 1643 in Woolsthorpe, Lincolnshire. His father was a prosperous farmer, who died three months before Newton was born. His mother remarried and Newton was left in the care of his grandparents” (BBC). As it can be seen, Isaac...

...SirIsaacNewton was an English mathematician and physicist. He was considered one of the greatest scientists in history. Newton was also the culminating figure in the scientific revolution of the 17th century. Newton was best known for his discovery that the force called gravity affects all objects in space and on earth.
.IsaacNewton was born on December 25, 1642, in the hamlet of Wollsthorpe, Lincolnshire (R.S.W. 17) His Father died only three months before he was born (SirIsaacNewton 1). When he was three years old Isaac's mother, Hanna, placed him with his grandmother so that she could remarry a man named Barnabas Smith, a wealthy man from North Witham (Dr. Robert A. Hatch 1).
When his mother returned to Woolsthorpe in 1653, Newton was withdrawn from school to fulfill his birthright as a farmer. Newton failed at farming, and returned to King's School at Grantham to prepare for entrance to Trinity College, Cambridge. A turning point in Newton's life was when he left Woolsthorpe for Cambridge University in June of 1661 (Dr. Robert A. Hatch 1).
Although Cambridge was a marvelous center of learning, the spirit of the scientific revolution had yet to enter its curriculum. In 1665 IsaacNewton took his bachelor's degree at Cambridge without honors or distinction (Dr. Robert A....

IsaacNewtonIsaacNewton 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 still taught in schools as one of the most fundamental parts of physical science. Newton’s discoveries made an impact on academics and how the physical world was viewed.
IsaacNewton was born in 1642 in Lincolnshire, England. He attended trinity College at Cambridge University from 1661 to 1665 where for the majority of the time studied logic, ethics, physics, and rhetoric of Aristotle. (The Life and Work of Isaac Newton2012 ) between 1664 and 1667 Newton, influenced by the work of Galileo, Descartes, and Kepler, invented calculus, worked with spectrums, and made the discoveries that led to the law of universal gravitation. In 1667 he was elected a fellow of Trinity College. He became Lucasian professor in 1669 and was elected into the Royal Society in 1672.
It is very well known that IsaacNewton first received the idea of universal gravity when he witnessed an apple...
