Product Description

Newton's ideas didn't come to him like an apple falling from a tree. Rather, it was a process where he thought about problems continually. Brilliantly showing children the results from the rigors of scientific thinking, as well as the importance of peer-review, publishing, and the give-and-take exchange of ideas so important to science today, this biography of Newton deftly combines the story of Newton's life, the historical setting he was working in, and the development of science. Inventor of what we know as the three laws of motion, calculus, gravity, modern physics, as well as rules for scientific reasoning and the scientific method, modern science still rests upon his shoulders. 126 pages, indexed.

Parental Note: This biography notes the historical speculation about a possible homosexual affair between Newton and another mathematician as well as his firm (though unorthodox) belief in God. Two metaphors mention Harry Potter.
