We will continue to examine the Scientific Revolution as we look at other scientists & thinkers who impacted history through their investigation and discoveries. We look at the contributions of Brahe and Kepler in astronomy & mathematics and Vesalius and Harvey in medicine & anatomy. But we shall pay special attention to the contributions of Galileo Galilei and Isaac Newton. Watch the video below in which the famous astronomer Neil deGrasse Tyson talks about the importance of Isaac Newton.
This will be a short powerpoint and you will then work on a worksheet with short answer questions as well as guided reading questions, critical thinking questions(answer in paragraph form) and a timeline. You will then have time to work on your Scientific Revolution Personalities Organizer which will be due at the end of the week. Links are below:
Scientific Revolution Personalities Organizer (5 extra points if you print out your own worksheet)
Also remember that at the end of the week you will have an essay test. You can find the questions from an earlier post.
