Transcript of Galileo Galilei

Gallileo Gallilei
Birth: Feb. 15, 1564
Death: Jan. 8, 1642
Other: he was almost 78 when he died, (died before his birthday).
As a child Galileo learned about music and art. His father even taught him how to play the lute. He watched his father play many times. The lute was a very common and very liked instrument. They were payed well for their jobs. His family was not very poor because of that reason.
Galileo went to Pisa University to study medicine. He leaves without his medical degree. He and his father had learned that he preferred mathematics, and left to follow his dream of being a teacher for math.
Later in his life/school jobs
Galileo teaches mathematics and at one time is a professor at Pisa University. He was not very well paid but the other teachers were friendly and he enjoyed learning things from other subjects,: art, poetry, science, music, etc...
In 1591 Galileo's father
(Vincenzio Galileo), dies. He was the age 71. Galileo realizes he has to protect his family now. He thinks about the future...
Later in 1592 Galileo finds a new job as a
Professor (again), but at Padua, for: The University for the Republic of Venice. It was wonderful for him and he was paid well, but the other teachers were not very nice, were sometimes pushy, and had too many new shocking ideas. he became interested in how things fell through the air. He had to help his family with the extra money he earned. He was a very generous person. Galileo...(slide 8)

Galileo Galilei...
Galileo's name:
Galileo is named after his family's last name. His last name is Galilei,
(Galileo Galilei). You might be thinking:
"I knew it sounded similar in the beginning of the prezi"
Now you know that Galileo grew up around music, loved learning and questioning ideas, and also loved math. He eventually improved a telescope and it was finally easier to see things in space clearly.
Any Questions?
This is who Galileo Galilei is and I hope you enjoyed my presentation!

His father showed him how to play the lute.

He loved mathematics and music. He also liked to question things and wonder if they were true.
... learns about the telescope and makes his own. He modifies it and shows the Government of the Republic of Venice and they are pleased and amazed. He made it much clearer to see the sky and things like ships that are closer.
