mohammed ibn al hasn alhazen abu ali
Mohammed ibnal-hasn (alhazen) ` Abu Ali’
  • He was born in 965
  • He died in 1039
  • He live in Iraq first then he went to Egypt
  • He contributed to math, optics, and astronomy which eventually influenced other famous people.
  • Hes been called the best scientist of the middle ages.
  • His book of optics has been called the most important physics text prior to newton.
  • Other achievements in optics include improved lens design.
  • An early exploration for the rainbow.
  • He also did experiments on visual perception.
  • In a famous leap of over-confidence he claimed he could control the nile river.
  • Alhazen has been called the “Father of modern optics” the “Founder of Experimental Psychology.
more information
More Information
  • In number theory, Alhazen worked with perfect numbers.
  • He introduced the Power Series Theorem.
  • He solved Alhazens Billiard Problem (originally posed as a problem in mirror design).
  • Alhazens attempts to prove the Parallel Postulate make him one of the earliest mathematicians to investigate non-Euclidean geometry.
isaac sir newton
Isaac (Sir) Newton
  • He was born in 1642
  • He died in 1727
  • He was born in England
  • This genius began revolutionary advances in mathematics, optics, dynamics, thermodynamics, acoustics and celestial mechanics.
  • He is famous for his three laws of motion (inertia, force, reciprocal action).
  • Was the first person to conclude that the ordinary gravity we observe on earth is the very same force that keeps the planets in orbit.
  • He observed that white light is a mixture of all the rainbows colors.
  • Newton also designed the first reflecting telescope, first reflecting microscope, and the sextant.
  • He applied calculus for several purposes: finding areas, tangents, the lengths of curves and the maxima and minima of functions.
  • In addition to several other important advances in analytic geometry, his mathematical works include the binomial theorem, his eponymous numeric method, the idea of polar coordinates.
  • He also advanced the power series for exponential and trigonometric functions.
  • Newton is so famous for his calculus, optics and laws of motion, it is easy to overlook that he was also one of the greatest geometers.
  • He solved the Delian cube-doubling problem.
  • Even before the invention of the calculus of variations, newton was doing difficult work in that field.

Caroline Herschel
  • She was born on March 16, 1750
  • She died on January 9, 1848
  • She attended Agnes Scott College
