The life of a cell

 

Also know as vitreous cells are cells part of the vitreous body which fills up of the space in human eyes between lens and retina.

The vitreous body is composed of mostly 98% water with few cells, and 90% are hyalocytes cells. The funtion of hayalocytes cells are producing hyaluronic acid and collagen. Hyaluronic acid is an important component for a smooth elastic tissue that covers cells as a lubricant and protective padding. Collagen is a very flexible and gives the vitreous body strutural support.

Sometimes we see clear string like things flowing in our vision, those are hyalocytes cells.

 

As you can see, I am the hyalocytes cell. I am in the vitreous body in your eyes. You probably have seen me in your vision as clear watery strands flowing around and didn’t pay much attention to me. I make rubber like materials to support and lubricate your eyes and cells within them.

 

What questions did you need to research in order to create your cell story?

I needed to research where are they found and their functions. Their information is very few online. I also wanted to know their structure and how they mutate, but I can’t find any information on that.

What new or familiar digital tools did you try to use as you worked through this project?

I used Google and also tried some Gale Engage Learning, but I can’t find any information on the Gale website.

What was the process you used to investigate the topic?

I first searched where they are found then what do they do.

How did you verify and cite the information you found?

I look at multiply cites to verify.

How did the process of completing this challenge go? What could you have done better?

The process was not too smooth. Next time I should try researching on something with more information available.

collaboration fluency-static electricity test

Our task is to make a ruler turn by using static electricity as the force.

My group: RuoMin(me) Marcus, and Jake R

I think we collaborated well because we worked together and discussed equally respecting each others thoughts. Everybody was working and on topic during the time.

I liked that this is a very interesting and creative science task. During the experiment, I learned more about how static electricity works and which materials hold static electricity. If I were to do this again, I would have more types of materials to test how they store electrons.

PE Health Unit 2 Self Assessment

Scene: walking into restaurant sit down at table
Rumin: that was a great game
Tim you guys played so good
Mehrshad thanks
Clayton Thanks
Rumin How do you think that the dance is going to go
Tim I can’t dance but It should be fun

Rumin Ha 11 people $110
Tim Ok I’ve got an extra $10  
RUmin OK here
Mehrshad ooooohhhhh I forgot that I have a science project sorry guys I have to go
Tim stay
Rumin I doubt that your science project is that important
Mehrshad it really is
RUmin I really don’t think so
Mehrshad Well I am already not going to the dance and I have someone to pick me up already here
Rumin K bye
RUmin (to tim) DO you have anymore people that we can get profit off of
Tim Yes
 
(Mehrshad walking into councillor)
Clayton HI you came to see me
Mehrshad yes there are people selling and smoking weed outside the gym
Clayton OK how do you know this
Mehrshad they offered me
Clayton this is a bold move that you are doing, why did you do it
Mehrshad Because that is the right thing to do
Clayton you did the right thing,
Clayton were sending cops on the way
(beewwoooo)
1)      Pressure from friends (etc.).
2)      It was both refusal and delay and them I went to the counsellor to report it
3)      Our conflict was resolved by getting the cops to arrest them for illegal action and it made them more resilient by putting them in a real situation and making the right move.
 

Deliver

The results we found through the investigation is that No Name dissolved first, and Aspirin almost dissolved immediately after. Motrin followed quickly and so did the Tylenol. Advil didn’t dissolved, it expanded  wile very very slowly dissolving.

Some questions we need to ask gather information for investigation is, “How should we simulate stomach conditions?” The answer we found is to use vinegar which is similar to stomach acid and heat it to 37 degrees which is human body temperature. We also asked “How should we capture the process of pill dissolving?” The answer we decided is to use test tube holders to hold the test tubes and set up a phone on the side filming.
