Isaac Newton The Mathematician

Isaac Newton won many hats as a physician, a mathematician, an astronomer, an alchemist, a theologian and as a natural philosopher. He is regarded as one of the most influential men in the history of humankind owing to his discovery of various scientific and mathematical laws that are applied in our everyday life. Mathematics is especially one of the fields where he attained the most fetes by discovering various theories that play a pivotal role in today's modern field of mathematics. For instance, he developed the new Theory of light, the quantified gravitational approach and pioneered infinitesimal calculus all of which are fields that have immensely contributed to some of the discoveries and strides that have been made in a variety of fields in the modern day sciences and in the real world.

Newton’s approach to mathematics challenged the narrative previously held by the world at the time. For instance, he challenged the static geometry of the Greek by adopting calculus allowi...
