Étienne Pascal was a dutiful father who gave up his job as a civil servant to look after his 3 kids after the death of their mother. Etienne did not send his kids to a school and taught them himself, since some sources say that he did not like the education system. All his kids showed exceptional grasping powers and a phenomenal level of pick up. His son was the brightest among the 3 children and Etienne ensured that the boy focused on Latin and Greek and was away from Geometry. The father apparently feared that his boy would lose interest in literature. But destiny can never be changed and what has to be will be. Ironically, several years later, this little boy, Blaise Pascal, came to be known as the greatest mathematician of all time. He changed the dynamics of mathematics for the very first time when he coined the ‘Pascal’s Theorem’ at the age of 16. Blaise also has made a significant contribution to the field of physics. He is well known for his exceptional works in the fields of ‘Hydrodynamics’ and ‘Hydrostatics’, which formed the basis for the principles of hydraulic fluids. This Christian philosopher also devised a gadget, which was named after him and was famously known as the ‘Pascal’s calculator’. Though this great human, had a short life span of only about 39 years, he has impacted society and the basic education structure till humanity exists.
