ESCAPE FROM THE MAGAZINE

June 2nd, 2016

The blog post is really, really good. Each of us did a good job on this, and I believe that there are some hard time for us. The table of contact is a tough part, I don’t really know how to make it, and it looks horrible. The easy part for me will be the Inner Mongolia writing part, the information is easy to get, and it is all real, and thanks to Sophia who made a beautiful cover. Thanks everyone who is in my group.

Polymer Journal Entry 4

May 9th, 2016

Our original goal wasto make a two layers polymer that can protect people’s elbow, knees and forehead when they are doing exercises. The inside layer is designed to absorb water and sweat. The outside layer is designed to cushion the blow. During designing process, we tried to make the outside layer with Base Oobleck, and add more Borax or Guar Gum to it. The inside layer will be made by base Gloop with more PVA Solution or more PVA Glue. My partner Aaron was doing the inside layer, and he did a really good job on it. He made our first prototype. But when I started to make the outside layer, I found out it’s really hard to make it. Because either the prototype is too solid or too liquid, it can’t be in the middle status, and we can’t put inside and outside layer together, it will make a new polymer. Therefore, we gave up on this original thought, and started to try to make one layer. One layer is really easy to make, 35g of PVA Glue, 10ml of Borax, and 8ml of water were mixed together to make our best prototype. We made three different colors of it, and mixed them together, so it would be bigger and wrap around your elbow. In the “Dream On” presentation day, I learned that all the people in our class did well jobs on the infomercial. People’s polymer all works in some ways, and sometimes action is better than description to other people. What a wonderful day.

This is our infomercial video, ENJOY 🙂 🙂 🙂 LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL

Robinson Crusoe’s Island Life

Robinson Crusoe's Island Life

This poster is about the island life of Robinson Crusoe, in which he experienced the hard life, and peaceful life. The climax in the poster is the part when he met with Friday, and educated him to become a civilized man.

Polymer Journal Entry 3

I suppose that our polymer is going to be really successful. Our most successful point of prototypes is really bouncy, and meets our product goal. The prototypes need to be long enough to wrap around people’s elbow, also it won’t be excessively sticky, which can help people in sports. It can absorb a little bit of water to make your sweat go away. Most of our prototypes meet this standard. The prototypes are made of 35g of PVA Glue, 10ml of Borax, and 8ml of water. We made three of them and mixed them together to form a prototype that is big enough to wrap around the elbow. I believe that the most important prototypes will be the Borax. Nothing happened before borax was mixed in the mixture, it’s just PVA Glue with water. Right after the borax was put in, the mixture start to turn in to solid, and we stir the mixture around in the cup. After putting the polymer on to your hand rub around and dry it, the polymer came out. After several tries, we start to add the three articles in large amount, specially the water. More water will make the polymer wetter, so it fells good and not stick on to your hand. My partner and I believe that we just need to make a bigger one, and it will be perfect. I hope our polymer will get first place of this competition. (I really want the prize for first place 🙂 1159463750554487074

Polymer Journal Entry 2

April 26th, 2016

We believe that we should do several test, one of the tests inside layer test is putting 30ml of PVA solution, 7ml of water and 8ml of borax to do the inside layer of our polymer and this will be the base. We will also start to go on for the outside layer of polymer, the starting materials will be 50ml of water and 20g of Cornstarch, a little bit of Bromax will also need to be added into it, which makes it more solid. Based on the sheet Ms. Cox gave us, my partner Aaron and I believe that more PVA solution that can make polymer more sticky, more stretchy, less goopy for the Gloop test which is also known as the inside layer will be good, more solid and not really sticky. However, for the outside layer, we believe that more Borax will be better, and it will increase bounce for our polymer and decrease stretch. When we are doing this test, we will put in each material slowly to make sure nothing will go wrong. Water will always be the last thing to pour in, and we must pour it in carefully.  We will do a lot of tests to make sure our prototypes will be ready to go. There will be slow pull test, quick pull test, water absorbing test and more… Each of the tests will be corresponded a feature for the prototypes. Specifically speaking, for water absorbing test, we will drip some drops of water on to the prototypes to see if it melts or not. I hope our prototypes will be a great success.41DZL5o2eRL._SX450_pvaslime1

 

The letter from Robinson Crusoe

April 19th, 2016

The book I read this month is called Robinson Crusoe and I write the letter as Robinson Crusoe to his parents.

York, England

My mom and dad

Dear Mom and Dad,

I am in somewhere of the middle of the sea. All these years I have been thinking about my life, what could it be if I didn’t sneak out that night. I believe I won’t face a lot of difficulties and always hurt myself, like what you had said to me, dad, “That boy might be happy if he would stay at home; but if he goes abroad, he will be the most miserable wretch that ever was born: I can give no consent to it.”(Defoe 6) but maybe you were wrong, now I can earn a lot of gold and can be safe from sailing. I could take care of myself. I know that you don’t want me to go to the sea is because of my two older brothers, the oldest brother died in the war Dunkirk against the Spaniards, and older brother disappeared. You guys are afraid of losing me and want to me to be safe, but people need to learn and need to study, and I can’t just stay under your guys shadow forever.

If the God let me get back to that night and choose again, I will still pick to sneak away from home. The great adventures I had are really good; and I faced a lot of dangers that you guys couldn’t image. “How ever, to cut short this melancholy part of our story, our ship being disabled, and three of our men killed, and eight wounded, we were obliged to yield, and were carried all prisoners into Sallee, a port belonging to the Moors.”(20) I have changed from a merchant to a miserable slave. This time it really did not feel good, you need to do what ever the boss want you to do, and work for 24 hours without having any rest. Thanks God, because I am good at fishing I start to level up, I became a fisher for the Moors, yeah and since the day I became a slave, I started to think and plan my escape project. “This moment my former notions of deliverance darted into my thoughts, for now I found I was likely to have a little ship at my command; and my master being gone, I prepared to furnish myself, not for fishing business, but for a voyage…”(22) This time I successfully escaped from the Moors. Not only being a slave is scary, I also met big waves and horrible beasts. I survived from all of these.

I never regret the choice I made. Although sometimes I missed you guys and the peaceful life, I will still keep going on this adventure till the end. Hope you guys take it easy, and take care of yourselves.

Sincerely

Robinson Crusoe

Polymer journal entry 1

April 18th, 2016

To design a polymer that is wearable, which can absorb impact from external, especially can protect your elbow, knees and fingers. The inside part of the polymer can absorb sweat to keep you cool. So specifically speaking our polymer firstly can protect you from getting hurt when you do strenuous exercises. Then, it will absorb the sweat and keep you cool. Our polymer is made for everyone in the world, for example: The gangsters, they like to fight, so they need our product to protect themselves from the fights. The policeman, they need to protect us from the dangerous, and they need good equipment to protect themselves, so they need our product. Babies, they are really weak, easy to get hurt, so they need our product to defend themselves. Athletes, they will always get hurt, if they are hurt then they can’t join the competition. Our product will be two layers, inside of the polymer is soft and sucks water, but outside is kind of hard, when there is pressure, the outside layer will be really hard and impact some of the force. So I believe our product is going to be really good. In conclusion, I believe our polymer is going to be the best. However the road to the success maybe really tough, we need to have confidence in it and I trust my partner and I.

Jesse’s Penguin throw

March 20th, 2016

What can a relationship between a penguin throw and parabola be? The standard form for a parabola is ax2+bx+c. In a quadratic equation, each of the number represent different things, and affect a lot of things, for example “c”, it shows the start of the parabola, and the starting height for the parabola, so it affects the distance, height and range for the parabola, in the real world, the starting point change can affect the flight of the penguin, how long will the penguin fly, how high will the penguin be. “a” also affect the distance of the parabola. In the parabola, “a” is how wide the parabola going to be, in the equation “a” is -9.8, it means the parabola going to be a negative one, and it’s really wide. So if it’s in the real world, it affects the throw of the penguin going upwards or downwards, also how far is the penguin going to fly. Those affect other stuff too, for example the basketball throw and soccer kick, not only those two sport, other major sport also get affect by the “c” and “a”. The graph itself shows, it is not going for ever, we can see it the graph ends at 1 second, and the parabola does not get higher then 9.286 or lower then 0.

Shortest Revolution’s journal entry

March 20th, 2016

My name is Adam George. I live in Boston my family. My father is a farmer who plants food everyday, he was an excellent soldier before, because of that, everyday he would spend two hours and a half training me in the field. My mother stays at home to cook rice. I fought in this big war, and I luckily survived from it. Now the peacefulness and happiness are around the America. The War is gone, and we got our freedom. Yeah!!!!!!!

Continuity and Change for American History

All this year I have seen so many things around me, things started to change, but there are still things that keep the same from past.

The biggest change from past to now, our country change from a colony to an independent country, we start to have our own way to live, our own culture, and our own laws. People got their own rights; they have their rights to sue people, British people will not to disturb our life. The 13 states became one big country. Most the Americans moved to the western territories in the 1790s.

There are also things that stayed the same; we still pursue human rights and equality between each other. They way of how we live still stayed the same. People’s idea of justice still keep the same.
