The main character is Rachel, a girl who is turning Eleven.
She does not feel like an Eleven year old girl and wishes to be one hundred and two so that she could feel this age.
Rachel explains that once you’re one age you don’t stop being all the previous ages because, for example, you can still cry like a two year old girl.
In school, she is accused of owning an ugly and disgusting sweater.

This makes her feel sad and disappointed in her birthday.

Summary:
This story, written by Sandra Cisneros, is about a girl, by the name of Rachel, who is turning Eleven. However, she does not feel like an Eleven year old girl, because, for example, she sometimes cries like a baby of two years old. For this reason, she wishes to be a hundred and two year old woman.
In school, Rachel is accused by a bully, named Silvia Saldivar, of owning a repugnant and gruesome sweater. The girl, due to his innocence and non capacity of solving problems and hard situations, suffered the pain and embarrassment of wearing it.
In conclusion, Rachel wished to be older because she was powerless and impotent at the moment of denying and confronting her problem in the math class.

Wednesday 15th – Biology notes

These are my notes about our biology class on Wednesday 15th of March.

  • Discontinuous variation: Is a type of variation that differences in the features of a group of organisms where each fits into one of a few defined categories. An example are blood groups that are defined groups with different characteristics.
  • Continuous variation: Is a type of variation that can not be classified into one, two or three groups because there are no definite categories. An example is our height, as it can change because all people may have different height because there are lots of possibility.
  • Genetic variation: One of the differences between individuals is that their genotypes(the information given by all the genes that we have inside) are different. This means, that our variation is controlled by genes. For example eye colour, hair colour, height and many other characteristics are controlled by genes. Finally, blood groups are also controlled by genes.
  • Environmental variation: Are the changes that happen in our body that are caused due to our place of living, this means, by the environment. This is very common in animals, by helping them to survive in it’s habitat. Animals which can not adapt to the environment will not reproduce but the ones who do, will reproduce and little by little advance the process of transforming that species in the ideal animal for it’s habitat.
  • Natural selection: Is the choice of nature for the species to always try to make it survive all it can. This means, that nature always tries, by selection, the species to live as much long as it can.
  • Artificial selection: Is the choice by the farmer or grower of only the «best», fittest and more advanced parents to breed, generarion by generation, to improve the species and generally to adapat it for it’s environment.

Región de NEO- TP

En nuestra clase de cívica, comenzamos un trabajo práctico. Este consistía en separarnos en grupos y resolver una consigna. Nuestro grupo estaba conformado por Mora Lemos, Olivia Obligado y yo. La actividad consistía en buscar los senadores y diputados nacionales de cada región. En nuestro caso, nos tocó la región de NEO.

 

Multiple choice test – Biology

These are my answers to the topic we will start seeing today in our Biology lesson without reading the chapter.
This is what I know now about variation + Natural selection.

These are some notes of this class:

  • Descent: Are the living organisms that come after us and we reproduce.
  • Mutation: Is a sudden change in the genetic material which is in the nucleus.
  • If mutation occurs in an ovule of a sperm, the organism which is going to be affected is the descent, not the mother or the father.
