Incidentally, who knew more about calculus - the Prophet Daniel or Leonardo da Vinci?
Most likely, the surprising answer is the Prophet Daniel. Note this recent article in Science. For all his brilliance, Leonardo actually had a third-grade understanding of math, according to Peter Bernstein in Against the Gods: The Remarkable Story of Risk, 1998. Which makes all of Leonardo's accomplishments even more remarkable.
But also ... this understanding puts the Biblical book of Daniel in a slightly different light as well. The prophet that Jesus quoted the most was a thinker, a very logical person. Hmmmm ....
