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...

Science Essay- Sir Isaac NewtonSir Isaac Newton was one of the most brilliant mathematician and scientist ever in the United States. I will be discussing his childhood, through his academic fields, through his life.
Sir Isaac Newton was born on December 25, 1642 during the time of enormous strife for Great Britain. Isaac Newton father had died three months earlier because of illness and Isaac was born prematurely. Isaac was a sickly newborn infant, and survived and spent his first three years in a two-story gray limestone house. He was three when his mother remarried to local minister Barnabas Smith. His mom left Isaac so the wealth could increase and she moved to North Witham church, few miles away from where Isaac was living. Isaac stayed in Woolsthorpe Manor in the care of her mom parents; he had little contact with his mother for the next seven years. Isaac was never happy during this time period. He started formal lessons in small day schools in nearby villages of Skillington and Stoke, this is what Isaac wrote in his book, “There is no room for me to sit…I am sore afraid,” he...

...Sir Isaac Newton PRS MP (25 December 1642 – 20 March 1727) was an English physicist, mathematician, astronomer, natural philosopher, alchemist and theologian, who has been considered by many to be the greatest and most influential scientist who ever lived.[8] His monograph Philosophiæ Naturalis Principia Mathematica, published in 1687, laid the foundations for most of classical mechanics. In this work, Newton described universal gravitation and the three laws of motion, which dominated the scientific view of the physical universe for the next three centuries. Newton showed that the motion of objects on Earth and that of celestial bodies is governed by the same set of natural laws: by demonstrating the consistency between Kepler's laws of planetary motion and his theory of gravitation he removed the last doubts about heliocentrism and advanced the scientific revolution. The Principia is generally considered to be one of the most important scientific books ever written, both due to the specific physical laws the work successfully described, and for its style, which assisted in setting standards for scientific publication down to the present time.
Newton built the first practical reflecting telescope[9] and developed a theory of colour based on the observation that a prism decomposes white light into the many colours that form the visible spectrum. He also formulated an empirical law of cooling and studied...

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 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.
Isaac Newton 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 Isaac Newton first received the idea of universal gravity when he witnessed an apple falling in his family orchard. He compared the force needed to hold the...

...SirIssacNewton and Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz Controvery
SirIssacNewton 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....

...The Life and Times of IssacNewton
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 from North Witham, the next village, and went to live with him leaving Isaac to live with his grandmother, Margery Ayscough. Treated like an orphan, Isaac did not have a very happy childhood. After eight years of marriage, his stepfather died and his mother came back with her three small children. Two years later Newton attended grammar school at Grantham. He lodged with the local apothecary where was fascinated with all the chemicals. His learning in school got the attention of many people. As a child, Isaac Newton had invented three things, which included a windmill that could grind wheat and corn, a water clock that was powered by water-drops, and a sundial, which can be seen today in the house in which he was born. At the age of fourteen he left school to help his mother take care of the farm but he was so busy reading, solving problems, making experiments, and devising mechanical models that his mother noticing this thought he need a more...

The Life and Works of Sir Isaac NewtonSir 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 observed an apple fall from a tree, inspiring him to make his law of universal gravitation. He entered Cambridge University in 1661; he was elected a Fellow of Trinity College in 1667, and Lucasian Professor of Mathematics in 1669. He remained at the university, lecturing in most years, until 1696. Of these Cambridge years, he was at the height of his creative power, he singled out 1665-1666 as "the prime of my age for invention". During two to three years of intense mental effort, he prepared Philosophiae Naturalis Principia Mathematica commonly known as the Principia, although this was not published until 1687. As an opponent of the attempt by King James II to make the universities into Catholic institutions, Newton was elected Member of Parliament for the University of Cambridge to the Convention Parliament of 1689, and sat again in 1701-1702. Meanwhile, in 1696 he moved to London as...

In the Mind of a Genius
Sir. Isaac Newton was born on to a farmer on Christmas Day, December 25 1642 in the country of Lincolnshire. His Father died three months right before his birth. Isaac was a small child due to being born prematurely. When Newton was just three his mother remarried and went to live with her new husband; leaving newton in the hands of his grandmother. Newton took a disliking to his stepfather and maintained distance from his mother. Newton went to school at The King's School Grantham from when he was 12 till he was 17. He worked his way through school waiting tables and
cleaning wealthier students rooms. He was taken our of school but the master at King's school convinced his mother to let him finish his education. He became the top ranked student.
He was soon admitted into Trinity College where he obtained his degree in in August of 1665. During the Great Plague of 1665 Cambridge shut down and Newton returned home. This is when he began many of his discoveries, one of them being: The Method of Fluxtions. The Method of Fluxtions explains the theories and laws of planetary motion. He also started his studies with light and color. Newton also Discovered what we know today as the Three Laws of Motion. Newton also published several of his theories.One of his publications actually described the introduction to gravity....
