His parents and teachers thought he might even be mildly retarded. When Albert was ten he began secondary school, at which he still failed to excel. He disliked the regiment of school, and the strictness of his teachers. Einstein’s hunger for learning was aroused by science books and magazines. His mother passed her passion for music on to Albert.
The most significant ways Einstein made the world a better place were his achievements in science, pacifism, and philosophical writings. Einstein’s early years were not promising for him. When he was born on March 15th, 1879, his mother claimed his head was too big; his grandmother claimed that he was too fat, and his father stated he was mildly retarded (Severance 17). Little Albert did not talk until age four and was known to have violent temper tantrums until age seven. Eventually at age seven he entered Catholic Elementary school and he did not like it, as it was military like.
Although his parents first believed he possessed a learning disability (due to the fact that he did not speak until the age of 3), he showed an outstanding interest towards nature and retained the ability to understand complex mathematical ideas in his youth. At this time, his family moved to Munich, Bavaria and opened a small shop that made electric machinery. By the age of 12, he successfully taught himself Euclidean geometry. Despite the fact that Einstein gained a distaste for the mundaneness of schooling offered in Munich, he enjoyed learning. When he was 15 years old, his family was forced to move to Milan, Italy because of business failure, and Einstein decided to drop out of school.
Einstein was born on March 14th, 1879 in a quaint city known as Ulm, Germany to Hermann and Pauline Einstein. His parents, not aware that the beautiful baby boy in front of them would make the most brilliant theories to different scientific fields. One interesting fact about his parents was that neither had any concrete knowledge on the study of science or math. During his early childhood years, Einstein did not show any real skills but at the same time he was a very curious kid, being very detailed-oriented and observing everything that was around him. In the first years of school, his parents were very concerned that Albert might have what we called today a “learning disability”; he only showed achievement in the subject of math and science, but did not have a care in the world for any other of the subjects that were taught in elementary school.
His impact stretches far beyond the reaches of physics and life in the early 1900's. This physicist of phenomenal philosophy, logic, and imagination has been and still is the subject of countless catch phrases and expressions of intelligence. Albert Einstein is a forerunner of influential American icons. Because of his contribution to American science and society as an immigrant, intellectual accomplishments, and discoveries in nuclear technology, it is my belief that Albert Einstein was the most influential person of the twentieth century. First of all, Albert Einstein was the most important figure of the twentieth century because of his contribution to American science and society as an immigrant.
(German-American Physicist) Still today many scientists think that he had been born in a more modern time he would have been diagnosed with all of the following mental illnesses: dyslexia, ADHD, and aspergers. (How Do We Know Einstein was ADHD) However he very quickly recovered from this because by the age of 15 one of his high Bagby 2 school teachers shockingly stated “There is nothing left to teach him.” (What did Einstein Invent?) Einstein’s education was also very much disrupted by that failures of his father’s business. In 1894 his father’s business lost a contract and failed entirely. While the rest of his family left for work, Einstein was left at a boarding school where his family expected him to finish out his education and later continue on into ... ... middle of paper ... ...an who achieved his dreams, made himself a life as both a famous physicist, and became a nobel prize winner.
The Life of Albert Einstein Albert Einstein was born on March 14th 1879, in Ulm Germany. Einstein spent much of his youth in Munich where his family owned and ran a small manufactured electric machinery company. Although Albert Einstein is thought to be one of the most brilliant influential thinkers of all time, he was born with birth deformities that left his skull in an angular shape. In addition, this same ingenious intellect did not speak until he was three years old. When he did began to speak he was using long and meaningful sentences.
However, he hated the school because success was based on memorization and obedience rather than how much a child knew. Then when Albert went home he studied mathematics, physics, and philosophy all on his own. Then later his teacher asked him to leave because Albert was causing the other students to loose respect for the teacher. At fifteen Albert took the teacher's advice and left mid term to be with his parents and sister in Italy. He renounced his German citizenship after enrolling in a cantonal school in Aarau, Switzerland.
When Albert was five when he received his first compass and he began to investigate the world. Little did he know that that compass would make him famous. By the age of ten he becomes so fascinated by the world of science he self-educates himself to learn as much as possible. Albert then went to a secondary school in Switzerland. Albert felt that the academics and education were not satisfying enough so he started cutting his classes and used all his free time to learn about physics.
It was there that he decided he wanted to be a philosophy teacher, but his father convinced him to study to be an electrical engineer. So he applied to a college in Switzerland called Zurich Polytechnic, even though he did not finishing high school (Brian 11). They did not accept Albert, but since his math and physics scores were so high on the exam, they made an exception for him. Once he finished high school, he was immediately accepted in. So Einstein went back to high school in Aarau, Henderson1 ￼Switzerland (Brian 13).
