Polymer Project #2

The goal of our polymer project is to design a polymer that has a medical impact. Our target market audience is people who are training for sports or people who have a history of ankle problems. With our product, the Shoe Gru 2.0, the trainers will find that they could run with ease, they have more productivity, with less effort. We did not test for Gloop, but for super slime, it was a liquid-ish substance, and it morphs into the shape we need it to be, we have not yet found a purpose for stretch-tastic, but for Oobleck, the chalky texture it leaves behind could be extremely helpful, as it could hep us deal with friction.

During the first class, Harry and I had an accident where we used NVA Glue instead of NVA Solution. The result was getting a flexible, but strong substance. This is just what we needed to make our shoe pad.

Synthetic materials.made by chemical synthesis, especially to imitate a natural product: synthetic rubber. Natural resources are materials or substances such as minerals, forests, water, and fertile land that occur in nature and can be used for economic gain. Two examples of synthetic materials are rubber and plastic, while two examples of natural resources are oil and water. Polymers are a substance that has a molecular structure consisting chiefly or entirely of a large number of similar units bonded together, e.g., many synthetic organic materials used as plastics and resins. A polymer is a substance that has a molecular structure consisting chiefly or entirely of a large number of similar units bonded together, e.g., many synthetic organic materials used as plastics and resins. An example of a synthetic material is plastic, we use this for nonreusable bottles. First, let me explain what polymerization is, polymerization is to combine multiple monomers to form one big polymer.

39 Clues

In the book The Maze of Bones, the author uses an inciting incident to cause the protagonist to make a choice. Amy and Dan have to choose between two million dollars or a clue to a scavenger hunt.

At first, when their grandmother died, they were given a choice: they could take one million dollars and leave, or they could get a clue to something greater. Both Amy and Dan were terrified.  ‘Right now, all she wanted to do was run up to Grace’s library, close the door, and curl up with a book. She wanted to find Saladin, Grace’s Egyptian Mau, and cuddle with him. But Grace was dead, and the poor cat… who knew where he was now? She blinked the tears out of her eyes, thinking about the last time she’d seen her grandmother.’ She didn’t know what to do, if they take the two million, their horrible Aunt Beatrice would take the money. ‘Dan knew good and well that Aunt Beatrice only looked after them for Grace’s sake. Amy wished Grace had adopted them after their parents died, but she hadn’t. For the last seven years, Dan and Amy had been at Beatrice’s mercy, living in a tiny little apartment with a series of au pairs. Beatrice had paid for everything, but she didn’t pay much. Amy and Dan god enough to eat and a new set of clothes every six months, but that was it. No presents. No special treats. No allowance.’ Because of this, Both Dan and Amy struggled to make the choice.

However, when they reach the Catacomb, both of them demonstrated that they were brave and willing to risk their life for the question for 39 clues. Amy had just got a serum that could possibly lead to the next clue, when her famous movie star cousin, Jonah Wizard, comes in and demands Amy to give him the serum. Then she shows a lot of courage, saying: “Back off, Jonah, or … or I will smash it!” This shows the difference in personality from Amy being a terrified little girl into an intimidating Cahill agent. Dan also changed a lot. ‘I can trade away my trading cards for it.’ At first, all Dan cared about was his trading cards, now he was willing to throw away his life just for his grandmother’s quest.

In conclusion, it is clear that both Dan and Amy has big characterization changes. They went from terrified to brave throughout the rising action.

The Blood of Olympus

For the Resolution post of the book The Blood of Olympus, I chose to rewrite and design the novel by Rick Riordan into the form of a book title. I made sure that certain details were in. For example, I showed the symbols of the Olympian gods. This was very important as the protagonists, the demigods, are the children of these gods. A theme of the book Percy Jackson is choice. The whole story revolves around a society where choices are everything, even more important than family: ““You can’t choose your parentage. But you can choose your legacy.”” (Riordan 360). These teenagers could make one wrong choice and destroy the world. Choice is everything, choice could save everything, or it could destroy everything, the choice is everything, the choice is also the theme.thumbnail_image1
