Newton’s uncle was a graduate at the University of Cambridge (Isaac Newton). His uncle persuaded Newton’s mother to send him the college (Isaac Newton). Isaac Newton enrolled in a program similar to a work study (Isaac Newton). He had waited on tables and cleaned and took care of other student’s rooms (Isaac Newton). When Newton was in college the scientific revolution was already in in full swing (Isaac Newton). The heliocentric view of the universe theorized by famous scientists such as Nicholas Copernicus and Jonas Kepler, and Galileo was used by most European academic circles at the time (Isaac

He is credited with the generalized binomial theorem (Sir Isaac Newton). This describes the algebraic expansion of powers of a binomial (Sir Isaac Newton). He made substantial contributions to the theory of finite differences. He was one of the first to use fractional exponents and coordinate geometry to derive solutions (Sir Isaac Newton). Newton developed the “Newton’s Method”. It is used to finding better approximations to the zeros or roots of a function (Sir Isaac Newton). He was the first to use the infinite power series with confidence. Later In life Newton published “Principia” or also known as “The Mathematical Principles of Natural Philosophy”. This book is recognized as the greatest scientific book ever written. “In Principia” Newton Described his theories of motion, gravity, and mechanics. It also explained the eccentric orbits of comets and planets, the tides and their variations, the precession of the Earth's axis and the motion of the Moon (Sir Isaac
