Sir Isaac Newton was an English Physicist and Mathematician who is widely recognized as one of the most influential scientists of all time and as a key figure in the
Scientific Revolution. Newton made multiple contributions to optics, and he shares credit with Gottfried Leibniz for the development of calculus. Isaac Newton was born according to the Julian calendar (in use in England at the time) on Christmas Day, 25
December 1642, In a small town in the county of Lincolnshire. His father was also named Isaac Newton and Sir Isaac Newton was born 3 months after his death. his mother was Hannah Ayscough. At the age of three his mother remarried and left him, leaving him in the care of his grandmother. From the age of 12 to 17 Sir Isaac newton …show more content…

He did so by building sandals and model windmills in efforts to awe students and his teachers.

Isaac spent his college years at Trinity College in Cambridge. He began as a subizar and paid for it by doing valet duties.He was awarded a scholarship in 1664, which guaranteed him four more years until he would get his M.A. he In 1665, discovered the generalised binomial theorem and began to develop a mathematical theory that later became calculus. Newton's work has been said "to distinctly advance every branch of mathematics then studied". His work on the subject usually referred to as fluxions or calculus, seen in a manuscript of October 1666, is now published among
Newton's mathematical papers.

Isaac contributed greatly to mathematics, Newton is generally credited with the generalised binomial theorem, valid for any exponent. He discovered Newton's identities, Newton's method, classified cubic plane curves
(polynomials of degree three in two variables), made substantial contributions to the theory of finite differences, and was the first to use fractional indices and to employ coordinate geometry to derive solutions to Diophantine equations.
Without many of the discoveries that newton made, mathematics may have
