John Dallton John Dalton was born in September 5,1766 in Eaglesfield in Cumberland, England. Dalton and his family lived in a small country house. His family had been Quakers since 1690. Quakers where members of a society of friends. John had a brother named Mary and A brother named Charles, when he was born his brother was twelve years old and his sister was two years old.
Charles Hermite was an amazing French mathematician. He was known for his work with Abelian and elliptic functions, and for the many discoveries he made. He was originally treated unfairly because of his disorder, but he eventually proved that he was incredibly smart and capable of great things. Hermite went to many schools and had many tutors to complete his education. It took him many years to find a job that truly suited his creative and mathematic mind.
He was a kind man, a pacifist. He always opted for the peaceful way out. There have been many technological advances since the days of Einstein. And despite some skepticism, the theories he developed 85 years ago are still the most accurate that we have. Einstein comes from humble beginnings, born to a not-so-well-to-do family in Ulm, Germany.
Richard P. Feynman Early Life Richard was born on May 11th, 1918 in New York City, the first son of Melville and Lucille Feynman. He enjoyed science and mathematics from a early age, most of which he took it upon himself to learn before it was taught in school. His primary source for self-learning was the Encyclopedia Britannica and a lab that he set up in his room at home. In this lab he dabbled in electronics, whether it was repairing the radio or just making some circuits. In high school, Feynman was ahead in physics and mathematics, already a master of differential equations, trigonometry, and other high levels of calculus, but he was lacking in his other subjects, such as English and history.
Some of the public were confused, others happy and excited for the more efficient way to solve the equations, and some were hesitant. Most people during the sixteenth century were not used to thinking in terms of exponents, and astronomers were comfortable and already knew how to use arithmetic. John got a lot of praise and acclaim for not only being the inventor of logarithm, but for Napier Bones, his writing, and many more. Napier’s life did not change drastically as some other inventors or mathematicians did. John was already privileged growing up, the creation of logarithm was an ongoing project from many, and after John men continued to perfect the formulas.
He had two sisters there name was Gilberte also Jacqueline. They moved to a new house after his mother had passed away. The only reason that they moved he didn’t trust his son’s education at the local schools where they lived. It was a huge desion that he had to make to be able to teacher Blaise himself. He thought that they education that he could provide him was just as good as he would receive at a local school close by.
He was a well-educated physicist and astronomer. His lifetime was full of knowledge and study, but without that we would not be as greatly educated as we are in today’s age. Gauss grew up in a poor family with illiterate parents. He was born in Brunswick, Duchy of Brunswick on April 30, 1777, which in now located in Germany. Even at a young age Gauss was preforming and solving amazing puzzles and problems for his age.
A method was needed by 1860 to organize the sixty elements known by scientists. Many scientists helped contribute to the discoveries made for the Periodic Table, but Dmitri Mendeléev eventually constructed the first table. All of the elements that are a part of the Periodic Table are all based on the properties of matter. We are able to describe, classify, and quickly identify the elements by their properties. The table is also organized by their certain properties that repeat periodically when arranged by their atomic number.
His father w... ... middle of paper ... ...contributed if his health allowed. Niels Henrik Abel was a young but productive mathematician. In his short life he became a highly regarded mathematician and many of the formulas and theories he invented are still used today. Almost all of his work is very extensive and involved in very upper level math and because many people never reach this level he does not receive the credit he deserves. His work with the integral equations lead to the the invention of radar and sonar in an indirect way.
Pascal began his studies in 1635 with his reading of Euclid’s Elements and mastered them by age 12. This won the boy respect for his great talent in mathematics. Pascal in fact did not attend school; instead, Etienne brought him to lectures and mathematical gatherings at the “Academie Parsienne” nearly from its founding. At the early age of 16, Pascal began to play an active role in “Academie Parisienne”. There, Pascal became the principal disciple of Girard Desargues, a professor working there because he was the only one who appreciated his work in geometry.
