Isaac Newton or better known as Sir Isaac Newton is one of the most influential mathematicians this world has even seen. He was born on January 4th 1643, in Woolsthorpe, England. Newton is most famous for his theories in physics and his laws of motion. During his early life Newton was separated from his mother and again reunited with her after twelve years. Newton also attended King’s School, where he learned about the subject of chemistry. Soon later Newton was taken out of schooling by his mother in order to learn how to be a farmer. Newton did not like farming and did nit succeed at it at all. After leaning he was no good for the farm he then retuned to school to finish is general education.

These telescopes were also designed and invented by Newton himself. These telescopes were his first major accomplishment and he achieved this in the year 1668. Using these telescopes newton was able to show nonbelievers his ideas about lights and colors. After his theories were proven factual he was asked to give a brief demonstration of them in the year 1672. And shortly there after that his discovery was published in a book called, Newton’s …show more content…

He then finished and published Philosophiae Naturalis Principia Mathematica, which translated turns into the principals of math in the philosophy area. This book was soon realized and classified as the most significant and inspiring book in all of math and science. The book begins to summarize what would later be known as Newton’s basic laws of motion. That first of three laws was, every object in a state of uniform motion tends to remain in that state of motion unless an external force is applied to it. His second law explains the behavior of objects for which all existing forces are not balanced. (Google." Google. N.p., n.d.
