Who was Newton?

• Real name : Sir Isaac Newton

• Born : January 4 1643 in Woolsthorpe, England

• Occupation : Scientist, Mathematucians, Antronomer

• Best Known : Defining the 3 laws of motion & universal gravitation

• College & Career : i. Began to attend college at University of Cambridge in 1661

ii. Spend much of his life at Cambridge becoming a professor of mathematics & a fellow of the Royal Society( a group of scientist in England)

iii. He eventually was elected to represent Cambridge University as a member of parliament

iv. Leave the college at 1665-1667 because of the Great Plague & spend these 2 years in study & isolation at his home in Woolsthorpe developing his theories on calculus,
gravity and the laws of motion
 Died : Newton was experiencing digestion problems and had to drastically change his diet and mobility. In March 1727, Newton experienced severe pain in his abdomen and blacked out, never to regain consciousness. He died the

Newton's Furging Of Fluxional
• “The method of fluxions” - process of calculating the slope or
derivative of a curve or function is called differential calculus or
differentiation
• Fluxion, in mathematics, the original term for derivative (q.v.),
introduced by Isaac Newton in 1665.
 Fluxion - instantaneous rate of change at a particular point on a curve
xo

 Fluents - the changing values of x and y


 Differential of x - “moment” of x (χ ο)
 x = x + o (importantly, o is the letter, not the digit 0)
