Isaac Newton was born janurary 4th, 1643 in Woolsthorpe, Lincolnshire,
England. Isaac Newton came from a family of farmers but he never did know his real dad
because he died three months before he was born. His father owned property and animals
which made him a very wealthy man. His father was aslo very uneducated and could not
even sign his own name. Isaac’s mothers name was Hannah Ayscough but was changed
when she married Barnabas Smith. When Isaac was two years old he was given to his
grandma to take care of him. He did not live a happy childhood. In 1653 he moved back
with his mom, grandma, one half-brother, and two half-sisters.
He began attending school in Grantham. When he was in school he did not do so
good but he had a passion for learning. He was a sizar .A sizar was a student who recived
an allowance toward college expenses in exchange for acting as a severt towards the
other students. He sayed at the universty teaching math. Isaac was one of the oldset in his
grade. In 1661 he entered the Cambridge Universty and then was hired as a professor of
Mathematics in 1669. He had one of the most brilliant minds. Legend has it that seeing
an apple fall gave Newton the idea that gravity, the force which keeps us bound to the
earth , also controls the motion of moon and stars.
Isacc Newton\'s help to science included the universal law of gravity, laws of
optics, and the development of calculus. He is also famous for his book he wrote, this
book was called “Principia Mathematica.” This book talked about the different types of
math that he wanted to teach. Isaac also talked about the laws of motion, which one
person relates an object\'s mass and acceleration to the force being applied on it. Isaac
Newton was a very smart math teacher who was criticized for is work because he was
devoted to his work and not many people beleived in his study of math. Isaac Newton
died alone in 1727 with no kids and lived modestly.
