  • 1. The Calculus ControversyThe Birth of Calculus: These are the Guys to Blame - Since 1802 Leibniz vs. Newton
  • 2. The Calculus Controversy - Since 1802Objective: The students will be able to describe the cause andconclusions of the calculus controversy with 85% accuracy.
  • 3. Sir Isaac NewtonBirth-Death:1642-1727Famous Discoveries: Reflecting Telescope Optics and Gravity Calculus AND MANY OTHER THINGS
  • 4. Gottfried Wilhelm LeibnizBirth-Death:1646-1716Famous Discoveries: Step Reckoner Leibniz formula for π 1 1 1 1 1 1 ... 4 3 5 7 9 11 Calculus
  • 5. The Birth: Newton’s CalculusDate: 1665-1666Developed his calculus in his twenties. Used as a means to support his physics.Published in Philosophiae Naturalis PrincipiaMathematica (Prinicipia) in 1687.
  • 6. The Birth: Leibniz’s CalculusDate: 1675Developed first by the integral then by thedifferential.  is the sum d is for the differencePublished in the Acta Eruditorum in1684.
  • 7. The Controversy: BeginningThe fuel to the fire: Newton’s lack to publish his work Leibniz’s correspondence with NewtonThe first accusation of plagiarismagainst Leibniz was stated byNicolas Fatio de Duiller.
  • 8. The Controversy: Building of the StormIn 1704, The Optiks was published. Newton made a statement that Leibniz may have copied his work.Leibniz countered by criticizingNewton’s work. The statement angered nearly all of England.1708, Leibniz was accused of plagiarism byJohn Keill.

  • 10. The Controversy: EndingThe Royal Society decision: Newton was the first inventor of the calculus Leibniz was not injured by Keill’s remark. This decision was published as the Commercium Epistolicum in 1712Death of Leibniz in 1716
  • 11. After the DeathBurialof Leibniz Only one person was present.Newton’s slandered Second edition of Commercium EpistolicumEngland’s rejection England would only teach English mathematics Quiz NO foreign works Time
  • 12. The committee 11 members 6 mathematician 2 foreigners Only one was a mathematician 7 were friends of Newton
  • 13. Quiz TimeAt what age did Newton develop his calculus? a. 30s b. 20s c. 40s
  • 14. Who was the first that stated that Leibniz could have plagiarized? a. Sir Isaac Newton b. Nicolas Fatio de Duiller c. John Keill
  • 15. What were the findings that the RoyalSociety published about the controversy?
