History 202 6 Feb. 2017 Isaac Newton Isaac Newton was a well-known English scientist. He accomplished a lot during his time and influenced the world a great deal. He is considered to have contributed more to science than any other person. His life can be divided into three periods. The first one was his early childhood, he second was the time of his accomplishments, and the third is his later life. Isaac Newton was born in 1642 in Woolsthorpe, in rural England. This was the same year the astronomer Galileo had died. At a young age, Newton was glued to a book called The Mysteries of Nature and Art. He was interested by all of the things that physicists do every day, time and motion. His father died three months before he was born. His mother later remarried and Newton went to stay with his grandmother. Isaac Newton entered Cambridge University in 1661. At Cambridge he studied the latest scientific ideas. During his time in college he learned about the philosophies of Descartes. Newton became fascinated by the ideas of these scientists. He was considered an introvert and stayed in his room as much as possible. When the plague hit England he was sent home to avoid an infection. Isaac Newton’s legend was born right outside his house, in the apple orchard. He did not think of most things every college male normally would. He was more engaged in the moon and how it goes around the Earth.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
