Polymer Journal #1-Science

Synthetic VS. Natural

What are synthetic materials?

A synthetic material is when materials are combined to make one big molecule.

 

Give 2 examples of synthetic materials.

Plastic and ceramics.

 

What are natural resources?

Natural resources are materials that aren’t artificial and from the nature.

Give 2 examples of natural resources.

Water and DNA

 

 

Polymers and Where They Come From

What is a polymer?

Polymers are molecules which is a long, repeating chain of small unit (monomers). They have higher molecule weight by any molecules which consist billions of atoms.

 

Give 2 examples of synthetic polymers and the natural resources they come from

Synthetic Polymer #1

Nylon

What natural resources does this come from?

 

It comes from silk.

What would we use this synthetic material for?

 

Nylon is using for socks, parachuting, and stocking etc.

Synthetic Polymer #2

Plastic containers

What natural resources does this come from?

It comes from Oil and Polythene.

What would we use this synthetic material for?

Plastic container is use for making plastic. It is connect to each other to form a molecule.

 

 Chemical Reactions

How do natural resources go through a chemical reaction to become synthetic materials?

*important words to think about…polymerization, monomer, polymer

In natural resources, the acts of a monomer is a  synthetic material.  So, the monomers will chemically bond together which makes a synthetic material, but polymerization is the process of monomers which bonds together. Therefore, for plastic molecule is the oil and polythene would bond together making a hug molecule which is plastic.

What is a monomer?

Monomer is a basic unit of polymer which may be considered of building blocks from which proteins are made. Monomers may bind to other monomers to form a repeating chain molecule via a process called polymerization. Monomers may be either natural or synthetic in origin.

What is polymerization?

A process of reacting monomers which molecules together in a chemical reaction to form polymer chains or 3D network.

Revolutionary Voices Journal: The Great Proletarian Chinese Cultural Revolution

Progressing through certain resources, learning from different perspectives, I completed my revolutionary journal that is all about the The Great Proletarian Chinese Cultural Revolution, however it is about an old professor in the university who went through the The Great Proletarian Chinese Cultural Revolution,and how he changed his opinion on Mao and Chinese Cultural Revolution. I chose this revolution, because I was able to learn how the revolution impacted people, how their lives were different, yet also the lives of people in China’s legacy.

The Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution in Simple English

http://isbtube.isb.bj.edu.cn/video/The-Great-Proletarian-Cultural-Revolution-in-Plain-English/90c5585265d4139d2e7cee8b0ce8ecd9

Our project, easy and some difficulty, was to make a Common Craft video about The Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution.  During this revolution, which was led by Chairman Mao, lots of changed, but some stayed the same. They are people out there asking who’re asking if the revolution is necessary.

Mao had a lot of rules, such as The revolution made a huge impact in China. Some were good, some were bad. Students no longer had classes anymore, so that also changed the education in China. This is significant because just stopping education, will make the China’s future bad. Another rules from Mao was destroy the four olds, because of his orders, his advocators, red guards, everything got destroyed. The capitalism and imperialism were gone.

Lots of things had changed after a decade of the revolution ended, which stayed the same. People had still strong belief of the government. There are some people who doesn’t like Xi, but I know that citizens still have faith in Chairman Mao (Mao Ze Dong).

Non Fiction Writing Book Theme-Lang Lang’s autobiography

Lang Lang- Journey of A Thousand Miles

Theme: Each person has their views by pursuing dreams. Lao-Tzu has said, “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.”

Think of all the success stories you heard so many times in your life, everything from Mozart to Chopin. They all go something like this: a pioneer or group of people that are piano geniuses in their area of expertise. They struggle to find themselves in this big horrific world. Suddenly, an opportunity arises where they might have to risk everything to achieve greatness. The person or group of people beat the odds and become successful purely through their sweat, spirit, and determination. These stories hold some truth; however, they often leave out some key points. Although certain people are born with exceptional abilities, it is the opportunities they get to develop their talent that will ultimately lead to their massive success. Can you also imagine that a pianist got inspired by Tom and Jerry,Monkey King, and Transformers?

I can imagine this by a person inspired by Tom and Jerry,Monkey King, and Transformers.The story I am going to talk about is Lang Lang:A Journey of a Thousand Miles ,yet the person is Lang Lang a famous pianist from Shenyang, a small town in China. “People often ask me about my influences…they expect me to say, Beethoven or Brahms, Tchaikovsky or Bach. Naturally, they’re shocked when I say Tom and Jerry which was Lang Lang favourite’s cartoon in all time, the beloved cartoon characters created in Hollywood.”(Ritz,16). According to Lang Lang,Tom (the cat from Tom and Jerry) made him motivated to learn piano,which amazed him that he could extend his fingers on the key.

Lang Lang made a journey to a great success which leads to America. You are not trying hard enough.”(Ritz,68)”..when you play at Carnegie Hall, every great musician will listen to you, for their spirits are there.” (Ritz,150). All that time of extra practice in piano, he enhanced skills individually and his father. This shows over the years Lang Lang have seen so many different cultures and different ways of bringing up kids. I believe that no matter how you train your kid, you need to give them love. Sometimes Lang Lang father pushed me too much, but he loved me.

“The world of music is also changing daily, and we will have to figure out to keep classical music alive and thriving in this multimedia…”(Ritz,199) This conveys that Lang Lang employed the excel in musical craft, which his creativity would knew the right answer every time. Lang Lang thinks music was the first language he had been taught. Music have gave everyone including Lang Lang by taking an action of listening on the most accompanying and memorable life and moments that I can hear from my head.

Theme: Each person has their views by pursuing dreams. Lao-Tzu has once said, “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” Which emphasis that Lang Lang is inspired by Lao-Tzu and the reason why the title is Lang Lang’s perspective of “Life is a journey” is a metaphoric meaning, yet a notion of traveling cites by cites by sharing music. And the journey is still the beginning. Lang Lang:A Journey of a Thousand Miles is an inspiring story which will give readers for thankful for the courage and achieve greatness.

Independent Reading Post #3- Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury

This is a book cover that is portraying the resolution and the theme from the story Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury. The poster depicts how Montag escape his loneliness and find other like-minded people. “We have everything we need happy, but we aren’t happy. Something’s missing. I look around. The only think I positively knew was gone was the books I’d burned in ten or twelve years. So I thought books might help.”- (Bradbury, 122) , “What else? Something.. Something.. I’ll save for noon. For noon. When we reach the city.(Bradbury, 158) Instead of showing the protagonist face I placed him to look anonymous. By looking at what he has done, he immediately regrets, but still believes he has committed the act for the best. In the book poster, the protagonist only sees the victim with black, yet the society in Fahrenheit 451 its indoctrinated by the government.But, Montag meets Gangster(leader of escaping) to escape his loneliness with him.

Rising Action/Climax: Nothing But The Truth

 

My book is called Nothing But The Truth by Avi. This book is about a boy in ninth grade who was suspended from school for singing along to “The She Star-Spangled Banner”(the national anthem)  in his homeroom, causing  what his teacher, called “a disturbance.” According to, Jake Barlow the radio show man he said “Is this kid a natural-born patriotism?”(Avi, 116). This quote is the answer of the movie poster saying what the truth is for the protagonist. Also I chose to do a movie poster because to grab readers if they want to see this book in a next level.

I mainly focused on the conflict and the rising action. On page, 177 “…We were about to begin. In fact, we usually begin by singing the national anthem. Maybe you’d like to lead us that? Philip? Philip,whats the matter? Why are you crying?”(Avi, 177).   The given passage depicts how Philip forget the lyrics because he finds out how he was mean to others including to his teacher because he realize he did a mistake himself by not telling the truth to everybody in his society. The conflict is Person vs. Person.

Sonnet for Equality

Equality, Now

 

 

Most people know fairness doesn’t happen

Where everyone has the same chance and rights.

All people should have two hands clapping

Like hardened teams challenged with the same fight.

 

Call thee who inspired Hidden Figures.

Segregation and sexism are two

Problems blacks and women did transfigure.

When bathrooms, fountains, buses were taboo.

 

Equity, justice, even handedness.

Can society break from division?

So, bring happiness and being of lightness.

To love others should be the religion

 

People need equality to be just

 

Real freedom is equality and trust.
