Today I would like to write about Newton and focus on how he grew up.
Sir Isaac Newton is a well-known figure in world history. He was born in 1643 in England. He left a lot of historical achievement, especially in mathematics and physics. In 1687 when he was 44, he published a book called Principia, which described the laws of motion and gravity.
Newton was not gifted in terms of the family environment. First of all, his father died 3 months before Newton was born. Newton's mother got married to another man as a new father but the new father did not like Newtown and vice-versa.
From 12 to 17, he was disturbed by his mother by removing him to another school or bullied by other students. However, this situation strongly encouraged him to study harder and let him the top-ranked student.
In 1661 when he was 18 years old, he was accepted to Trinity College, Cambridge thanks to his uncle's support. He studied a lot of philosophy lectures and Kepler's work. When he obtained a bachelor degree, he began to develop a mathematical theory which was the part of Calculus. Even if the college was suspended because of the Great Plague, he continued to work on calculus, optics and the law of gravitation by himself.
