Newton, the SuperscientistPremium
The scientist and his contribution to Science
This Learning Unit about the figure of Isaac Newton explains why he was one of the greatest scientists in history. It serves to introduce curricular contents such as the famous Laws of Dynamics and Universal Gravitation or the decomposition of white light into a color spectrum. Students will learn about Newton´s scientific findings, why his way of communicating these concepts revolutionized the world of human knowledge and how these concepts have been the foundation for important subsequent scientific breakthroughs.
The related activities stimulate the student´s manual, cognitive and creative skills and favor learning through reasoning and experimentation, that directly involves the student in the acquisition of new knowledge.
