- Kepler: Which immensely helped navigators. He made various contributions
to mathematics, including faster methods of calculation.
How is that change evidenced in today's modern society?
- Galileo used the telescope to study sunspots, the moon's surface, and Jupiter's moons. Also today we can know the telescope to study the universe.
- Kepler know the star are moving around the sun. we can still know the are moving too.
- Today we can use microscope, thermometer, barometer.
- we can use the scientific method to observe, make a hypothesis, design, analyze and draw.
