Isaac Newton 's life can be divided into three quite distinct periods. The first is his boyhood days from 1643 up to his appointment to a chair in 1669. The second period from 1669 to 1687 was the highly productive period in which he was Lucasian professor at Cambridge. The third period (nearly as long as the other two combined) saw Newton as a highly paid government official in London with little further interest in mathematical research. Isaac Newton was born in the manor house of Woolsthorpe, near Grantham in Lincolnshire. Although by the calendar in use at the time of his birth he was born on Christmas Day 1642, we give the date of 4 January 1643 in this biography which is the "corrected" Gregorian calendar date bringing it into line with our present calendar. (The Gregorian calendar was not adopted in England until 1752.) Isaac Newton came from a family of farmers but never knew his father, also named Isaac Newton, who died in October 1642, three months before his son was born. Although Isaac's father owned property and animals which made him quite a wealthy man, he was completely uneducated and could not sign his own name. You can see a picture of Woolsthorpe Manor as it is now Isaac's mother Hannah Ayscough remarried Barnabas Smith the minister of the church at North Witham, a nearby village, when Isaac was two years old. The young child was then left in the care of his grandmother Margery Ayscough at Woolsthorpe. Basically treated as an orphan, Isaac did not have a happy childhood. His grandfather James Ayscough was never mentioned by Isaac in later life and the fact that James left nothing to Isaac in his will, made when the boy was ten years old, suggests that there was no love lost between the two. There is no doubt that Isaac felt very bitter towards his mother and his step-father Barnabas Smith. When examining his sins at age nineteen, Isaac listed:-

As indicated earlier, Newton and his followers argued vehmently with Huygens and his followers over the nature of light. Newton subscribed to a "corpuscular" theory, where he envisioned light as small compact bodies of energy. Huygens focussed on the wave like nature and developed that theory. The diffraction properties of light were so obvious, that Huygens school eventually won out, and the wave theory of light ruled science for the next three centuries. Author: Dan Thomas email:

SIR ISAAC NEWTON Scientist Isaac Newton's discoveries were so numerous and varied that many consider him to be the father of modern science. A graduate of Trinity College, Cambridge, Newton developed an intense interest in mathematics and the laws of nature which ultimately led to his two most famous works: Philosophiae Naturalis Principia Mathematica (1687) and Opticks (1704). Newton helped define the laws of gravity and planetary motion, co-founded the field of calculus, and explained laws of light and color, among many other discoveries. A famous story suggests Newton discovered the laws of gravity by watching an apple fall from a tree, though there's no proof that this is true. Newton was knighted in 1705.

Sir Isaac Newton
Sir Isaac Newton, the culminating figure in the scientific revolution of the 17th century, was born on Jan. 4, 1643 (N.S.; Dec. 25, 1642, O.S.), in the manor house of Woolsthorpe, near Grantham, Lincolnshire, England. Perhaps the greatest scientific genius of all time, Newton made fundamental contributions to every major area of scientific and mathematical concern to his generation. Newton came from a family of modest yeoman farmers. His father died several months before he was born. Three years later his mother remarried and moved to a nearby village, leaving Isaac in the care of his maternal grandmother. Upon the death of his stepfather in 1656, Newton's mother removed him from grammar school in Grantham in hopes of training him to manage her now much-enlarged estate, but even then Newton's interests ran more toward books and mathematical diversions. His family decided that he should be prepared for the university, and he entered Trinity College, Cambridge, in June 1661. Even though instruction at Cambridge was still dominated by the philosophy of Aristotle, some freedom of study was permitted in the student's third year. Newton immersed himself in the new mechanical philosophy of

Sir Isaac Newton, 1642- , English scientist and mathematician. Newton entered Trinity College, Cambridge , in 1661, where he studied the works of such modern thinkers as Boyle , Descartes, Gassendi, Galileo, and Wallis. When an outbreak of the plague closed the university in 1665, Newton retired to Lincolnshire and began his pathbreaking work in physics, astronomy, optics, and mathematics. His earliest major work was on mathematics. At the same time that Leibniz was developing the theory and techniques of calculus, Newton, working independently on what he called the "method of fluxions," arrived at many of the same conclusions, and made possible nearly all subsequent mathematical and scientific investigation. On the strength of this work, Newton was named Lucasian Professor of Mathematics at Cambridge in 1669, when he was only twenty-seven. There he began a course of lectures on optics, in which he argued that white light is in fact a composite of all the colors in the spectrum. He applied his discoveries in the invention of the reflecting telescope, which he donated in 1671 to the Royal Society , and was elected a fellow of the Society in the following year.

English scientist, astronomer
and mathematician
Born in 1642 - Died in 1727
Sir Isaac Newton when he was a boy, was more interested in making mechanical devices than in studying. He made a windmill that could grind wheat and corn, and he made a water clock and a sundial. His teachers thought of him as a poor student.
Even when he was in college, he was not outstanding and received no awards.
His childlike curiosity led him to make some very important discoveries when he became a man. Within a period of a year and half he made three great discoveries.
One day when he was drinking tea in the garden, he saw an apple fall to the ground. He started thinking about why it fell, and finally concluded that the same force that caused the apple to fall also kept the moon in orbit around the earth. This same force, gravity, also kept the planets in orbit around the sun.
He didn't publish his findings for a long time. Edmund Halley, an astronomer, urged him to publish the things he had learned.
His second discovery was about light and the properties of light. He spent months in a darkened room doing experiments. He passed a beam of sunlight through a prism and found that the beam of light was broken down into different colors. He concluded that something that appears green, such as grass, looks green because it reflects the green light in the sun and absorbs most of the other colors.

was born on December 25, 1642 in Woolsthorpe, near Grantham in Lincolnshire, England. He was born the same year Galileo died. Newton is clearly the most influential scientist who ever lived. His accomplishments in mathematics, optics, and physics laid the foundations for modern science and revolutionized the world. Newton was educated at Trinity College, Cambridge where he lived from 1661 to 1696. During this period he produced the bulk of his work on mathematics. In 1696 he was appointed Master of the Royal Mint, and moved to London, where he resided until his death. As mathematician, Newton invented integral calculus, and jointly with Leibnitz, differential calculus. He also calculated a formula for finding the velocity of sound in a gas which was later corrected by Laplace. Newton made a huge impact on theoretical astronomy. He defined the laws of motion and universal gravitation which he used to predict precisely the motions of stars, and the planets around the sun. Using his discoveries in optics Newton constructed the first reflecting telescope. Newton found science a hodgepodge of isolated facts and laws, capable of describing some phenomena, and predicting only a few. He left it with a unified system of laws, that could be applied to an enormous range of physical phenomena, and used to make exact predications. Newton published his works in two books, namely "Opticks" and "Principia."

13. Isaac Newton (1642 - 1727)
Extract from "A Short Account of the History of Mathematics", transcribed by Wilkins from Trinity, Dublin. sir isaac newton (1642 1727)
Sir Isaac Newton (1642 - 1727)
From `A Short Account of the History of Mathematics' (4th edition, 1908) by W. W. Rouse Ball. The mathematicians considered in the last chapter commenced the creation of those processes which distinguish modern mathematics. The extraordinary abilities of Newton enabled him within a few years to perfect the more elementary of those processes, and to distinctly advance every branch of mathematical science then studied, as well as to create some new subjects. Newton was the contemporary and friend of Wallis, Huygens, and others of those mentioned in the last chapter, but though most of his mathematical work was done between the years 1665 and 1686, the bulk of it was not printed - at any rate in book-form - till some years later. I propose to discuss the works of Newton more fully than those of other mathematicians, partly because of the intrinsic importance of his discoveries, and partly because this book is mainly intended for English readers, and the development of mathematics in Great Britain was for a century entirely in the hands of the Newtonian school. Isaac Newton was born in Lincolnshire, near Grantham, on December 25, 1642, and died at Kensington, London, on March 20, 1727. He was educated at Trinity College, Cambridge, and lived there from 1661 till 1696, during which time he produced the bulk of his work in mathematics; in 1696 he was appointed to a valuable Government office, and moved to London, where he resided till his death.

Newton, Sir Isaac (1642-1727), mathematician and physicist, one of the foremost scientific intellects of all time. Born at Woolsthorpe, near Grantham in Lincolnshire, where he attended school, he entered Cambridge University in 1661; he was elected a Fellow of Trinity College in 1667, and Lucasian Professor of Mathematics in 1669. He remained at the university, lecturing in most years, until 1696. Of these Cambridge years, in which Newton was at the height of his creative power, he singled out 1665-1666 (spent largely in Lincolnshire because of plague in Cambridge) as "the prime of my age for invention". During two to three years of intense mental effort he prepared Philosophiae Naturalis Principia Mathematica Mathematical Principles of Natural Philosophy ) commonly known as the Principia, although this was not published until 1687.
As a firm opponent of the attempt by King James II to make the universities into Catholic institutions, Newton was elected Member of Parliament for the University of Cambridge to the Convention Parliament of 1689, and sat again in 1701-1702. Meanwhile, in 1696 he had moved to London as Warden of the Royal Mint. He became Master of the Mint in 1699, an office he retained to his death. He was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of London in 1671, and in 1703 he became President, being annually re-elected for the rest of his life. His major work

    1. NEWTON'S LIFE: South east of an area that was to become the English industrial heartland, in a little village called Woolsthorpe, Issaac Newton made his entry into the world. He was prematurely born, and, was so small at his birth, his mother used to say that "he might then have been put into a quart mug." His widowed mother - Newton's father had died several months before his birth - was to re-marry; and - there apparently being no room for a two year old in the new Newton household - this small misplaced child passed into the care of his grandmother. Newton had a bad start with his schooling; he has been described as having been one of the poorest performing students in the grammar school in which his grandmother had placed him. The story is that the boy suffered from a blow delivered by a schoolyard bully; or was it that he was struck on the head by an apple: whatever it was, an event occurred whereby "the hard shell which imprisoned his genus was cracked wide open." The boy was to make a dramatic turn around, early in his scholastic career. He was to ask questions which many of us sooner or later have come to ask. What is light and how is it transmitted? What keeps the moon in the orbit of the earth, and the planets in the orbit of the sun? Why does the apple fall to the ground? Newton came, in time, to answer these questions and was to give positive proof of these answers, proofs and answers which serve us yet today.

    Sir Isaac Newton (1642 - 1727)
    Isaac Newton was born on Christmas Day 1642 in the manor house in Woolsthorpe, three months after his father's death. He was so tiny that no one expected him to survive. When Newton was three years old, his mother remarried, an event which improved her situation, and led to three more children, but which deprived Isaac of a mother. His stepfather, the Reverend Mr Smith, would not take the three-year-old Newton along with his mother, and he was left at Woolsthorpe with his grandparents. We know little about Newton's pre-teen years, other than that he attended day schools in the neighbouring villages of Skillington and Stoke. In August 1653, when Newton was 10, the Reverend Smith died and Isaac's mother returned to Woolsthorpe. At the age of 12, Newton was sent to grammar school in Grantham. Here he got the standard education of the time, which included Latin and Greek, and some Bible studies - taught at the time to reinforce the Protestant faith in England. He was placed in the bottom class at Grantham, but a playground fight that he won due to sheer spirit began a rise to the top of the school. He mostly kept his own company, as he was a 'sober, silent, thinking lad', and when he did associate with others, it was nearly always with girls. He is remembered from that time in Grantham for 'his strange inventions and extraordinary inclination for mechanical works'. Among these were a windmill powered by a treadmill run by a mouse - the latter urged on by tugs on a string tied to its tail - dolls' furniture for the girls at Newton's school, and a little four-wheeled vehicle for himself, which ran by crank, which he could turn while sitting in it.

    Sir Isaac Newton (1642 - 1727)
    'He established the principles of modern science, discovered the nature of light, and created the basis of modern mathematics. But Newton did more: his genius ushered in today's modern, rational era. From the movements of the tides to the orbit of the moon to the red of a sunset, Newton explained it all.' Newton: Tristram Hunt's Greatest Briton Isaac Newton was a precocious child, and a local schoolmaster convinced his mother that her son should be well educated. He matriculated from Trinity College, Cambridge, in 1661 and, influenced by the work of Descartes, took an interest in mechanical philosophy. To enable him to pursue his studies, Newton was awarded a scholarship to remain at Cambridge; this enabled him to develop his theories, and he went on to give new direction to optics, mechanics, and celestial dynamics. Working on mathematics, Newton applied himself to drawing tangents beneath curves (differentiation) and finding areas under curves (integration). He took these 'new analyses' and expanded upon them, eventually finding a method by which to find the area under virtually every algebraic curve then known to mathematicians.
