Blaise Pascal was born in central France on June 19, 1623. He was one of the greatest mathematicians and physicists of the 17th century. He had two sisters of the name
Gilberte and Etienne who he was very close with. At the age of 3 Pascal's mother passed away causing the family to move back to France. Pascal's father worked in the
government in which he worked with mathematics causing his son Blaise to become very interested in them. At the age of twelve Pascal figured out the proposition of Euclidean
geometry by himself. While Pascal never did attend a university or any real formal education, at the age of sixteen he was allowed to accompany his father on scientific
gatherings. Pascal then realized that he was a genius in mathematics and decided to devote his life to them. Shortly there after he wrote an essay on conic sections with is
basically a part of projective geometry which can still baffle mathematicians today on how he came to that answer at such a young age with out any formal schooling.
