On December 25 1642, Sir Isaac Newton was born in England. He was born to a poor family.
It's a Boy!
Newton had a sad childhood. His dad died 2 months before he was born. When he was 3, his mother remarried and left her child with his grandmother. At 12, he was sent to King's school in Graham, England. Then, his stepfather died, so his mom returned and pulled him out of school to work on the family farm. At the age of 19, he entered Trinity College in Cambridge, England. He received his bachelor's degree in 1665, but the plague caused the university to close.
In 1669, Isaac Barrow, Newton's math professor, resigned & recommended Newton take his place. So, he became a math professor at age 27 and stayed at Trinity for 27 years.
Newton's greatest work was published in 18 months when he was 45. It was called the Philosophiae naturalis principia mathematica. It made him the leading scientist in his time, not only in England but in the entire western world.
I also studied chronology, time, and theology, religion.
In 1696, at the age of 54, he left to become the warden (and then the master) of the Mint, where money is manufactured. He made changes in the English money system that lasted over a hundred years. Then in 1704, he published the Opticks, which was mainly a collection of earlier research. He revised it 3 times.
After studying in his last years, on March 20th 1727, Sir Isaac Newton's life came to an end. He was buried in West Minster Abbey in London. Some of his great writings and letters that exist today prove him to be unique and smart.
