Before this life changing experience however, Leonardo hadn’t received an education. He only knew the basics of math, science, and english, but that didn’t stop him. While working so close to a talented artist,
After Franklin died, his work became one of the most influential examples of an autobiography ever written. Although, Franklin lived a short life he accomplished great things during his existence. Franklin took part in The Stamp Act, assembled the first American lending library, helped Draft the Declaration of Independence and the U.S constitution, and was part of many more contributions. Benjamin Franklin was a very intelligent man who did not have an ordinary mind like most men in the eighteenth century did. “His inquiring mind was challenged most by the mechanics of the word’s seemingly ordinary phenomena, and he was convinced that his mind’s rational powers could solve riddles that had puzzled humankind for centuries” (Franklin 441).
Benjamin Franklin is known by many for his work with modern day electrical technologies. He worked with lightbulbs, conductors, batteries, and invented many other objects we still use to this day. However, Benjamin Franklin was not always the successful inventor everybody knows him as today. He started out from a working-class family, and through backbreaking work in addition to stark diligence he raised his stature to the powerful figure we distinguish him as today. It is because of this mindset and his climb to success that Benjamin Franklin is the prototypical American.
He made great contributions in many areas of mathematics and even developed new ones. Perhaps the most impressive feats of his career were discovering the mathematical constant e (Euler’s number) and finding the sum of all natural numbers to be negative one-twelfth. While these discoveries are now rudimentary in the field of mathematics, they were breakthroughs of the 18th century. But how did Euler make these discoveries? The current teachings of mathematics at the time did not indicate a possibility for these discoveries; however, through Euler’s ingenuity and creativity, he was able to make discoveries beyond the imagination of man at the time.
Galileo was aiming to be a priest or a doctor at a young age, but then became fascinated in mathematics. Galileo’s passion for maths was accidently found when he walked into a maths lecture at college. However because of Galileo’s love for math and science, many new discoveries have been made which wouldn’t have been possible without Galileo. ACHIEVEMENTS
The true definition of honor is “a privilege” or “high respect”. To me honor means having courage to be committed to or feel pride for something or someone, so I guess I’m not that far off. Around the world there are many honorable people and honorable scientists. One scientist is a man famous for his inventions but mostly for his world known art pieces including The Last Supper and the Mona Lisa. He was also the only left handed artist of his time.
Anthem by Ayn Rand, Equality 7-2521 is creating electricity. Knowing his invention of light would impact mankind, he did it out of spite of doing what he loved, science. Also, making people happy and sharing his ideas with the world. Equality’s primary motivation is inventing something that the House of Scholars had never seen before.Creating something that no one has ever seen or heard of is always exciting. Having the same stuff with nothing new would get boring.
Galileo was smart enough he didn 't need a teacher. Sometimes you have to do take things on your own in life. He wanted to help others with his talents. Galileo took it upon himself and became a tutor for years in mathematics. Galileo
What do Albert Einstein, one of the greatest intellectual minds of our time, and Tim Tebow, a natural born athlete, have in common? One was born in the 1800s, and the other was born in more recent times. At first glance it would seem that these two share no similarities. However, these prosperous men have one thing in common: both were homeschooled. I believe that homeschooling played a crucial part in both men’s lives and immensely contributed to the status gained by both.
Without them, America might not be the same. Immigrants positively influenced the fields of science, music, and entertainment to help shape America to what it is today. Many brilliant immigrants have contributed to the field of science. However, one scientist in particular will forever be noted as one of the greatest scientist ever. That scientist is Albert Einstein.
