Students may have some awareness of Sir Isaac Newton and the law of gravity but probably no conception of his total scientific contributions. Introduce this universal genius to your classes through pages from his account book, a drawing of his reflecting telescope, a sketch of his prism experiment, a portrait of Newton, and a 1708 map of the universe to add contemporary perspective.
