Well, you can use wikipedia to learn general information about him and lead you to other links, but DO NOT FUCKING CITE IT OR RELY ON IT 100% since most teachers go apeshit with wikipedia. If you can get a hold of an article on another reputable encyclopedic site, go right on ahead.

Use google, or some academic search engine if your school provides one.

Here are sites not mentioned- more than you would probably ever want to know about Sir Isaac Newton.

Sir Isaac Newton Biography - Biography.com Isaac Newton (Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy)

Bam! got mine in first :)

But yeah, he stated not to cite Wikipedia, very good idea. [COLOR=Red]NEVER CITE WIKIPEDIA[/COLOR]. Use wikipedia for general information about subjects so you can have a general idea of what you're researching, then use the reference links at the bottom, that's what they're for.

I agree

For a school project you could start from here Isaac Newton - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (Footnotes_and_references) and use the sources from that point forward. Most good articles in Wikipedia use and list references (just like a real scientific article does). Books are also mentioned, if you can be bothered to use libraries etc... probably not for a small school project.

Why does everyone overlook the library these days? There are plenty of books with more information than you could ever use there.

If you are interested in his personal life and how it influenced his work, I read a pretty good book earlier this year. Five Equations That Changed the World: The Power and Poetry of Mathematics by Michael Guillen. It's an easy read, and doesn't take long too long to finish.

If you insist on using Wiki, go to the "external links" bit at the bottom and use those.

Also, if your school provides one, look him up in the databases they have. My school has tons, and there is a lot f good info there.

What's a book? Like an e-book?

Internet sources are much easier to access and can be accessed almost anywhere. Libraries are useful for some subjects that aren't widely published on the net, but as far as Newton is concerned, the local library will probably have less than you can get in 5 minutes on google.

Because you can't copypaste in real life.
