About this Category

Content tagged as "Newton" provides exposure to the most advanced level of real-world skills applied to their respective science, engineering, and mathematics disciplines. Content in this category is targeted at a university-level audience, although younger students who have had exposure to a particular field at the lower levels are welcome here as well.

Historical Significance

Isaac Newton was an English mathematician, scientist, and scholar who revolutionized our understanding of the universe by developing the mathematical tools necessary to describe the laws of gravity, allowing him to prove Kepler's Laws of Planetary Motion. Newton's work eradicated any doubt about the heliocentricity of our solar system, and the mathematical advances made by him were later developed into the modern mathematical field of calculus (a credit he shares with independent co-developer Gottried Wilhelm Leibniz). Newton's many discoveries and influential publications across many fields of physics make him widely recognized as one of the most influential scientists of all time.
