Polymer Design Journal #4

Prototype Observations

Prototype Observations Strengths for this Prototype Limitations for this Prototype
Prototype 1      
Prototype 2 Stretchy, sticky, It is sticky enough to be attached to the object and since it is stretchy it can be formed in anyway. With force, it breaks in pieces and it does not get harder.
Prototype 3 Stretchy, moldable, soft, smooth It is stretchy and also it could be easily molded to custom grips. It’s not sticky enough to be attached to the object.

 

Prototype Claim

Prototype #3, called Gloop1, was most effective for meeting our goal because:

Gloop 1 met most of the expectations and it was the most effective polymer that is moldable and hardens after few hours.Image result for sugru ps4 controller

Synthetic VS. Natural

What are synthetic materials?

Man-made textiles

 

Give 2 examples of synthetic materials.

Nylon, Kevlar

 

What are natural resources?

From the nature; animals or plants

 

Give 2 examples of natural resources.

Silk, Rubber

 

2 examples of synthetic polymers and the natural resources

Synthetic Polymer #1

Nylon

What natural resources does this come from?

Coal or Petroleum

What would we use this synthetic material for?

For clothes and ropes.

Synthetic Polymer #2

Kevlar

What natural resources does this come from?

Oil and Sulfur

What would we use this synthetic material for?

Bullet proof vest

 

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

Natural resources go through a process called polymerization and become a synthetic material. Polymerization is a process when different solutions are mixed and creates a new substance, and monomer is a molecule that can be bonded to other identical molecules during polymerization. Polymer is the final product of the polymerization and has a molecular structure consisted with similar units and creates long chains like DNA.

What is a monomer?

Monomer is a one small molecule that could be bonded with identical molecules to form a polymer.

What is polymerization?

Polymerization is a process when monomers bond and create a chemical reaction.

American Revolutionary Voices Journal

Throughout this intensive writing process, I’ve included complex ideas and intricate details with the perspective of the colonist during the American Revolution. I have chosen 3 different main turning points and wrote a journal around one specific events for each turning points and write an opinion and specific historical information that supports the idea. I have also included pictures to make the writing more interesting and easy to understand.

The American Revolution in Simple English

After intense research and learning about the American Revolution, our project was to make a Common Craft Video style with using Stop Motion Pro app on iPad and film a video according to our revolution. We had printed pictures for chosen turning points and filmed a stop motion video according to the scenes of the events. When we were done with the filming our final step was to record our scripts that could give the audience clear and specific dates and informations for the American Revolution and made the piece authentic and published on IsbTube.

Theme Explanation of the Book “Charles and Emma”

Imagine all the people going against with your remarkable mind-blowing idea that could change the whole concept and the perspective of seeing living creatures for next decades of generations. Charles Darwin was a typical scientist and who liked to travel around the world to collect ancient specimens for his own collection. Charles collections of specimens were impressive and have had collected rare specimens that could satisfy his on expectations of being an expert. And even thousands of specimens were sent back to Cambridge professor, John Stevens Henslow, and some of his collections made him famous in natural history before he even went back to England. This was when Charles sized a chance of publishing his first geological specimen notebook to the British Association for the Advancement of Science in Cambridge. His life as a scientist and the path of future was bright until when he got married to Emma Wedgwood. The family of Wedgwood was a Royale Society in which they also had interests in natural history and they were also British nobles that possessed lots of properties and money.

When Charles Darwin and Emma Wedgwood got engaged there was no big deal between them, they had a healthy family with a total of 10 children and it was not a problem until when Charles Darwin started to work on a theory that would rock the religious and social world. Charles and Emma had a close and devoted relationship between them but Emma was religious and was against everything that is not factually correct according to her religion. Charles Darwin was an expert on Natural History but he is also a geologist and biologist. Back then, there was no such thing as Biology because of the time period he had lived in and most people were religious which means they had their own God or a worshiper they believed they created all the lives. Charles Darwin published a book in 1859 called “The Origin of Species” and according to the book it explains about his idea about how different species are not made by magic and actually it’s a science behind it. The idea of Biology was a shocking idea and even the X club with nine other experts supported the idea but it was never a thing because of the people who were religious. Emma was also religious and was strongly against his idea and this is when their marriage was poignant and wanted to break up. It was hard for Charles to decided if he continues to support his scientific claim or to choose his wife. The theme of the book is how the new scientific idea of Biology was against the time period where most of the people were religious and distrusted the scientific explanation of the origin of the species including the origin of the human. Biology was truly a magnificent work but it was not accepted until the mindset of the religious people changed and was universally accepted the concept of the origin of every species.

New Smart Goals 2018

Personal Goals:

My personal goal is to eat healthy and try not to use too much electronic devices. Eating healthy food is good for my own personal health and I use too much electronics and I should try to make it Electronic-Free at my house except when i’m doing my homework. When I succeeded this goal I would have more time on reading books and I could be healthy by eating healthy food. I would measure it by how many books I have read during the Electronic-Free time and and how healthy I feel from eating healthy foods.

Academic Goals:

My Smart goals is to be active and to be somewhat contributing my thoughts more in class. I think i’m not really contributing too much in class and not feeling comfortable with my knowledge and what i’m sharing with the class so I would really like to improve on that. And, I will measure if I rather succeed the goal or not by asking my friends or teachers if I ask more questions or being active on classes.

Wellness:

I was consistently very sick for last month and I would like to stay healthy and be strong to protect my body from harmful viruses and making me sick not able to go to school which is boring and kind a sad. I would measure it by checking up with myself if i’m feeling healthy or good to play sports and not get sick.

The Great Gatsby Book Cover

Spoiler Alert!!!! 

This is a book cover representing the resolution of The Great Gatsby. The quote at the very top was actually written by the author himself F.Scott Fitzgerald to sum up the theme of his story in a short sentence. What this quote actually means is to show how close the relationship for doing something special or to at least show the friendship before someone is dead. The background represents the green light from the book where it represents as Gatsby reaching to his goal which he didn’t because he got shot while trying to reach to the green light and got killed by Myrtle’s husband George at his own swimming pool. The words at the bottom represent the main words that can sum up the story. Well, Gatsby was surely a wealthy person because he used his Rolls Royce as a public bus for picking up his guests for his party “On weekend his Rolls-Royce became an omnibus, bearing parties to and from the city between nine in the morning and long past midnight” and which also leads to the other point of parting. Parting was also important because this could show that he has lots of close friends to party with which is not true and, the guests who were at the party never knew or saw Gatsby. The last part LOVE is also important because all this comes to showing off to Daisy with wealth and partying to show he has friends that come to his party. Gatsby was trying to impress Daisy to get her back from Tom Buchanan which he was cheating on Myrtle. At last, Tom and Daisy leave the bay and Daisy denies talking with Gatsby and even his cousin Nick.
