2: Isaac Newton Isaac Newton was born on January 4, 1643 in Lincolnshire, England. He had many professions including being a mathematician and a theologian. Most historians believe that Newton and Leibniz created the infinitesimal calculus by themselves without help. Newton was close with the great Swiss mathematician, Nicolas Fatio de Duillier. Nicolas had been impressed with Newton’s law of universal gravitation from the start of it. Later, the Royal Society had accused Leibniz of plagiarism. The accusation said that Leibniz was a fraud and that Newton was the real discoverer of the infinitesimal calculus. The dispute between Newton and Leibniz had begun. It had settled after Leibniz’s death in 1716.Newton received most of the credit for the Generalized Binomial Theorem. Isaac had many theories that involve lots of math and science. His origin for math started when he was an undergraduate at Cambridge. He improved their geometry, algebra and calculus. Our world would be a lot less without Newton’s genius theories of math. By Alex Davis

3: Math and Space Math and space have many similarities. People use math to measure things in space. Like the mass of a planet, or the distance between earth and the moon. Scientists measure how long it takes for a planet to revolve around the sun, and how fast it goes. They use math to measure the temperature of different planets. Life would be a lot more challenging without math and space. Without math and space there would be no calendars, and no way of telling time. People measure how much time it takes for the Earth to revolve around the sun, which is a year. People measure how long it takes for the Earth to make one rotation, which is a day. People use math to keep track of how many times Earth has revolved around the sun. We also use math to measure how long it takes the moon to revolve around Earth, and how long it takes for the moon to change phases. Calendars are based on math and space because of many reasons. Space programs need math and space. They use math to help them measure their rockets, how far the rockets should go, how fast they should go, and other things in the space. They measure how far away the thing the rocket is traveling to. They need to measure how far away a satellite is and where to place the satellite. Space programs would not prosper without math.

4: Jobs in Math Architecture Architecture is a great job that takes a big part in math. Math is used in this job to measure lines and area, and to graph objects to scale size. If you are an architect you need to know a lot about angles, shapes, and geometry. People who like art and math may have a big interest in architecture. Astronomy Math also takes a big part in astronomy. Astronomers use math to measure distances, diameters of planets, temperatures, and many other things. People who love science in space and math would really enjoy this job. Computer Scientist Computer scientists also need to know a lot about math. Computer scientists use math to measure integrated circuits, they also use math such as algebra to program software. If you like computer science and math you will probably like this job a lot!!!
