Albert Einstein was born in Ulm, Germany in 1879 to Jewish parents. In the year 1880 the Einsteins moved to Munich so that Albert could attend the school there. Albert's father started a factory there in Munich. The most charming story was told about the young Albert Einstein when he was 5. He was late to dinner because he was sitting out in the garden thinking under a tree, when he was brought to his father he noticed a small compass on Hermman Einstein's pocket watch.
Pauline, his mother, influenced Einstein to play the violin. According to Jeremy Bernstein, Pauline played the piano and Albert started to take violin lessons at age six (13). When Einstein started secondary school, he started to have a problem with authority. Einsteins problem with authority reflects with his problems paying attention in class when the teacher is speaking. Raine states that Albert’s teachers said “ he could not be expected to make a success of anything,” (17).
This is a story about the accomplishments of Albert Einstein, a man who changed the world with his sheer intellect, the obstacles that he had to overcome, and a glimpse into a world where Albert Einstein may have never existed and what that world may be like. There is a fallacy that Albert Einstein may have been slow and he stated that he had done poorly in school; however, in 1900, Albert Einstein graduated from a prestigious university in Zürich Switzerland entitled the Federal Polytechnic School and this accomplishment alone deserves adulation. In elementary school, Albert’s teachers reiterated early fears of mental retardation however, tutored at home until the age of seven and his lack of involvement with other children may have played a role in adapting to this ch... ... middle of paper ... ...is the next Albert Einstein and what might he or she achieve?

Albert Einstein was born in Ulm, Wüttemberg, Germany, on March 14, 1879. While he was still an infant, the family moved to Munich. Albert’s father was plagued with business failures throughout his life, and after one such failure, he moved his family to Milan, Italy. Einstein was, at first, left behind to finish his schooling at the Luitpold Gymnasium, but he disapproved of this choice, and followed his family to Milan. Albert decided to attempt to skip the rest of gymnasium and tried to pass the test he needed in order to do so.
Six weeks after he was born, his family moved to Munich; there he began school a few years later at the Luitpold Gymnasium. As a child, Einstein was a little out of the ordinary, not quite interested in the typical activities that other children enjoyed, Albert instead was fascinated by music, the sciences, and mathematics. He loved to play his violin, and even taught himself Euclidean Geometry. Unfortunately, as Einstein’s talents and brilliance became more obvious, he began to despise his schools teachings as they subjugated his creativity and genius. Einstein ended up dropping out of school in 1894 at the age of 15.
Later, one of Albert’s professors reported to have not believed that he taught that same person (“Einstein, Albert” 206). When he was fifteen, his family moved to Milan because of the family business failing. They left him in Munich to finish school, but he dropped out of school because he despised it (Klein 312). So Albert went to live with his family in Milan where he spent a year (Brian 10). 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.
His scores were not sufficient enough to allow him to enter the primary school, instead he went to a community school in the nearby city of Aarau . In 1896 he received his school certificate and enrolled ETH with intentions in becoming a mathematics or physics teacher. Einstein got average marks while in ETH and received his diploma in 1900, is GPA was 4.6 out of 6.0. Einstein eagerly applied to numerous Universities, looking for an assistantship but was denied to all of them. While looking for a school for higher education, Einstein gave up his German citizenship and applied for a Swiss one instead.
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. Even from a young age, he was brilliant; however, he refused to apply himself in the classroom. As a college student, he often cut class to study physics on his own free time or play his violin. Because of his unwillingness to put effort in ... ... middle of paper ... ...lopedia of Philosophy, 2006. 2nd ed.
Somewhat angered, his father withdrew him from the monastery, and Galileo continued his high school education in Florence. At age seventeen Galileo began college at the University of Pisa, where he reluctantly studied medicine. 6 Throughout his first term attending the university, Galileo became more interested in mathematics than medicine. A court mathematician, by the name of Ostillo Ricci, noticed Galileo in his lectures.7 Impressed with Galileo’s knowledge, he urged Galileo change his major to mathematics. Against his father’s wishes, Galileo changed courses, and by the end of his first term he was a mathematics undergraduate.8 Galileo made his first important discovery while attending the University of Pisa.
