Just the small parts that he did in his life made a huge contribution to mathematics, some which is still used and taught today, while others has been proven wrong and no longer part of our schooling. Without this man, and the many other mathematicians, the world of math would not be where it is today, making these people a very important part of our lives.
In conclusion, Kepler played a huge role in the Scientific Revolution with his many genius discoveries and major accomplishments due to his early developed love for science. His contributions to science and mathematics played a big role in the development of science. Without his genius it could have taken years longer to discover some of the things he did. Therefore, Johannes Kepler is one of the most important astronomers of the Scientific Revolution.

In summary, Sir Isaac Newton was a brilliant man who changed how we view the world of science and mathematics today. Despite the rough beginning of his life and mental distractions faced, Newton managed to invent, discover and theorise so much. His hypothesists guided other mathematicians and physicists to discover further things in the science world. He was even and influence on Einstein, another great scientist, it was proven that Einstein kept a picture of Newton on his study wall. Therefore, to honour him for his accomplishments, society agreed to name a few terms in science and math after him such as newtons which are the units for force, and in math, the Principal Newton's method and even knighted by a Queen of his time.
When you think about a great mathematician who comes to your mind? Do you think of Isaac Newton, Archimedes, or Da Vinci? These are men who greatly influenced the world with their mathematical achievements and study’s. A name that might not come to your head however is Edwin Hubble. Hubble is best known for his discoveries in Astronomy, but without math he wouldn’t be able to make his observations like he did.
The Ancient Indians had some mathematical achievements. One of their mathematical achievements, which was shown in the Vedic texts, is that they had names for every number up to one billion. The Vedic texts also show that they managed to calculate irrational numbers, such as√3, very accurately (Whitfield, Traditions 42).... ... middle of paper ... ...affect us in numerous ways, such as in architecture, modern mathematics, modern science, the medical world, technology, and much more. Ancient India, China, and Greece all contributed to math and science, however, the Greek achievements influenced us the most. They invented Pythagorean Theorem, calculated the value of pi, discovered atoms, accurately found the size of the Earth, and had much more accomplishments than India or China.
Galileo Galilei was born in Pisa, Italy February 18, 1564. He was the son of Vincenzo Galilei, a member of a Nobel family, a musician and a mathematician. Galileo, at an early age, developed a great love for mathematics and mechanics. However, his parents urged him to seek medical professions which promised more fortune. Galileo’s love for mathematics turned him away from his parents wishes only to follow his natural talents.
He was the man that finally built a model of astronomy and physics and in doing so, brought together the work of Kepler and Galileo and of course his own findings on gravity (Margaret, 90). Newton was the first scientist ever to be honored with a knighthood for his work (Christianson, 138). Newton saw far, farther than anyone else at this time. He changed the world, and opened people's eyes. Work Cited Anderson, Margaret.
He discovered exponential calculus, and co-discovered, with his brother, calculus of variations (Olanoff 612). He also used math in topics such as astronomy, optics, ships' sails, and the tides of oceans. In all, Bernoulli was a very interesting person who contributed to the math used today (Jones 211). Works Cited Bradley, Micheal J. Pioneers in Mathematics: The Age of Genius (1300 – 1800).
This formula that has been cherished in the many fields of science for years is nothing other than E=mc2. In addition to one of Einstein’s most recognizable achievements to date, in this essay the symbol $3m will be discussed in great detail as well. Representing the largest physics prize to date, this gives physicists more motivation to expand what we know about the world we live in. Furthermore, I have also created my own symbol which I believe would be a great addition to the many mathematical symbols we see today. Now let us understand Einstein’s formula E=mc2.
Archimedes (287BC-212BC) was truly one of the greatest mathematical minds of all time. The discoveries and inventions of Archimedes formed the basis of many of the fundamental concepts of modern physics and mathematics. Born 287 BC Archimedes grew up in the thriving commercial hub of the port city of Syracuse, Sicily. His father, Phidias, was an astronomer and mathematician and it is thought his family enjoyed the life of aristocracy. Very little is known about his life, what is has been reported by the Roman writer and historian Plutarch.
