Albert Einstein

Albert Einstein, a German-born American physicist (one who studies matter and energy and its interactions), revolutionized the science of physics. He is best known for his theory of relativity, which states that measurements of space and time vary depending on conditions such as the observer’s state of motion.

Albert Einstein was born in Ulm, Germany, on March 14, 1879, but grew up and received his early education in Munich. He was a poor student, and some of his teachers suspected he was retarded (mentally handicapped); at the age of nine, he was unable to speak fluently (with ease and grace). Still, he was fascinated by natural laws, and he felt a deep sense of wonder when pondering the invisible, yet real, a force that directed the needle of a compass. He began playing the violin at the age of six and continued to do so throughout his life. He discovered geometry (the study of points, lines, and surfaces) at the age of twelve and was captivated by its clear and certain proofs. By the age of sixteen, Einstein had mastered calculus (a type of higher mathematics used to solve problems in physics and engineering).
