His first physical experiment was carried on when he was 16 years old. On June 5 1661 Newton entered the University of Cambridge where he studied mathematics. Soon he became famous for his contribution to mathematics by the time he was 21. In1665 while he was in his native village, he saw an apple fall from the tree and began wondering what force made the apple fall. Newton performed many experiments with light. He invented a reflecting telescope. Newton developed a mathematical method, which is known as the Binomial Theorem. In 1669 Newton was appointed a professor and began lectures on mathematics and optics at Cambridge University and continued his work on the problem of gravitation. His great work "Elements of Natural Philosophy" was published in the middle of 1687. Newton's contribution to science is unique. He died at the age of 85.
