Newton's Discoveries
Throughout history there have been numerous mathematical discoveries that have drastically assisted in shaping today's arithmetic world. Such discoveries have greatly enhanced the public's mathematical knowledge as well as their ability to approach an issue with a solution. A great contributor to several mathematical discoveries was Isaac Newton, who was born and raised in Woolsthorpe by Colsterworth, Lincolnshire. An immense portion of Newton's early years did not involve childlike interest, instead, he encountered feelings of loneliness, betrayal, suppressed anger, and his own numerous insecurities. These feelings derived from events such as his father's death and his mother's remarriage and abandonment at only three years of age, subsequently, leaving him to his grandparent’s care.

Isaac Newton was a deeply introverted individual who protected his privacy and therefore many people did not have pleasant memories regarding him. However, Newton proved his hospitality, generosity, and kindness along his later years and regardless of what life obstacle came his way he grew in knowledge and quickly escalated to the top of his class in the King's School, Grantham. From which he was removed around the age of ten after his mother's second husband's death. Although, his success was mainly due to a bully as revenge, Newton attended Trinity College in Cambridge in 1661 and began forming his own mathematical predictions (“Isaac Newton” 2). Isaac Newton is mainly credited for his discovery of calculus although he formed
