One would need to be committed to their work to be able to reach something of that height.” Calculus marks the beginnings of what is called higher mathematics( Isaac Newton). The invention of calculus provided mathematicians and scientist with a powerful tool to solve problems that were difficult or unsolvable before. This would make it a lot easier for mathematicians and scientists to do their work in the future. Calculus would later be more useful in future ideas and as well as be useful in career fields that are connected with
