Newton was born on December 25,1642. He was an English
mathematician and physicist, considered one of the greatest
scientist in history, who made important contributions to many fields of science. His discoveries and theories laid the
foundation for much of the progress in science since his time. Newton was one of the inventors of the branch of mathematics called Calculus. He also solved the mysteries of light and
optics. Formulated the three laws of motions, and derived from them the law of universal gravitation.

Newton's birth place was at Woolsthorpe, near Grantham in Linclonshire. Where he lived with his widowed mother, Until
around his third birthday. At this time his mother remarried, leaving him in the care of his Grandmother and sent to grammar school in Grantham. Later, in the Summer of 1661, he was sent to Trinity Collage, at the University of Cambridge. Newton received his bachelors degree in 1665. After an intermission of nearly two years to avoid the plague, Newton returned to Trinity, Which elected him to a fellowship in 1667. He received his master

degree in 1668. Newton ignored much of the established curriculum of the University to pursue his own interests: mathematics and natural philosophy.

By joining them in what he called the Fluxional method,
Newton developed in the autumn of 1666 a kind of mathematics that is now known as calculus. Was a new and powerful method that carried modern mathematics above the level of Greek geometry. Although Newton was its inventor, he did not introduce calculus into European Mathematics.

Always Fearful of publication and Criticism. Newton kept his Discovery to himself. However, enough was known of his abilities to effect his appointment in 1669as a Luciasian Professor of Mathematics at the University of Cambbridge.

Optics was another area of Newton's early interests. In trying at explain now colors occur, he arrived at the idea that sunlight is a...

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...

...Through 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...
