He created two of the most respected pieces of art in human history, The Mona Lisa and The Last Supper, both of which still maintain their credibility as masterpieces to this day. Da Vinci’s notebook also proved him to be a Renaissance man, he had many great ideas in various subjects including art, writing, anatomy and scientific design. Da Vinci’s notes show primitive ideas for inventions that wouldn’t be fully developed until centuries later. This flood of intelligence is what prevented a lot of his ideas from fully developing. Since da Vinci excelled in many subjects, he never had enough time in his life to completely focus on mastering one field in particular.
Their desire to educate themselves through their own unique learning styles. Benjamin Franklin desired books from a very young age, but accidentally came across his talent. Although working with his brother gave him the opportunity to explore his skills as an Apprentice. Franklin realized he had an unquestionable passion to further his learning.

After pursuing with that Gallaudet became interested in writing children's books. Gallaudet was a well known man for all the things he did. After graduated from Yale, Gallaudet was not quite sure of the direction he wanted to proceed in terms of a career. He had many interests to include working in a trade, attending a seminary or perform in the capacity of a traveling salesman. Temporarily, he worked as a legal apprentice before deciding to return to Yale University in 1808 as a graduate student where he obtained a Masters of Arts degree.
Simon Stevin was an influential mathematician and engineer with a broad range of interests. He offered new insights and discoveries in the development of decimal numbers and the laws of inclines, gravity, hydrostatics, and fortification. Although Stevin never earned the same lasting reputation as Galileo or Isaac Newton, his contributions to the advancement of mathematical theory are noteworthy. Stevin began publishing his writings on mathematics while still a student. In 1582 he employed a printing shop in Antwerp to produce Tables of Interest, which outlined the rules for computing interest and provided tables for understanding discounts and annuities.
Zinn’s tone differs from that of the text that he gives many different points of views of history. In his book, “A People’s History of the United States”, he is shown to often give examples from other textbooks, readings, passages and quotes. In my opinion it is good that he wrote his book this way. It was very easy to follow and I often found myself not able to put down. It gives the reader many different perspectives on very important moments in history and allows the reader to form their own opinions.
Chris loved books and found company in the characters in the books he loved, his favored author was Jack London who also hoboed around the country and returned to school at the age of 19. Mr. London became a writer because he wanted to escape from the horrific prospects of life as a factory worker, just like Chris who doesn’t like the
I say in a bit, that I am like the Box Man, because I like to work independently. I like to work for things instead of depending on others to help out. I don't like to depend on others. I don't like people to feel sympathy and feel pity towards me. I sometime have a feeling like a leader that has the courage and confidence to do anything that may seem difficult to accomplish.
I mainly pushed them off because elementary teachers always wanted some kind of colorful and creative diorama or drawing. Even though I found this fairly simple, I just didn’t enjoy the trivial coloring or gluing. I would put these off so much that I would even have to ask my dad to come help me finish just so I could get to bed on time. However as I grew older I began to enjoy schoolwork more. It was becoming more complex, especially in math.
Léon Walras (16 December 1834 - 5 January 1910) Biography Marie-Ésprit Léon Walras was born in Évreux, France (near Montreux, Switzerland) on December 16th, 1834. Walras was the son of the French proto-marginalist, economist and schoolteacher, Antonie-Auguste Walras, who encouraged his son to pursue economics with a particular emphasis on mathematics. Walras enrolled in the Paris School of Mine but grew tired of engineering. He spent most of his early life in Paris as a novelist and art critic (had quite a Bohemian youth). He also tried careers as a bank manager, journalist, romantic novelist and a clerk at a railway company, administrator of cooperative bank before turning to economics .In that scientific discipline Walras claimed to have found “pleasures and joys like those that religion provides to the faithful.” In 1858, one evening while the two were out walking, his father situated the postulate in Léon that to create a scientific theory of economics one would need to use differential calculus to derive a ‘science of economic forces, analogous to the science of astronomical forces’.
Algebra 2 Algebra 2 Pascal Investigation (5.7) 1. Who was Blaise Pascal (history)? Blaise Pascal, famous mathematician, was born in 1623 on June 19th, at Clermont. His father moved the family to Paris in the year 1631 to conduct his own scientific investigation as well as to pass on his knowledge to him only son. At first, young Pascal’s education did involve mathematics, only the study of languages. Pascal decided to learn about geometry, a topic he had only heard of but never studied, in his spare time.
