Module One Post Five [Nanotechnology and Math Help Prevent Cancer]



Nanotechnology and Math Help Prevent Cancer

This website displays the groundbreaking achievement for scientists who study nanotech and mathematicians alike. They have engineered pills that will combat cancer. The website displays why it is important that scientists are making these pills because cancer is becoming resistant to many other methods of treatment. The website is based in Ontario at the University of Waterloo (a high ranking computer science university).

The nano-scientists and mathematicians from both Harvard Medical School and the University of Waterloo made a 2 in 1 pill which made the cell not show signs of resistance so that cancer could not detect the resistance and adapt. Cancer usually can tell if a cell has adapted to be resistant to cancer so the cancer cells will change so that the normal cells are no longer resistant. The other part of the pill ensures that the cell is still protected in case of cancer but does not show that it’s protected.

Module One Post Four [Nanotechnology and Computers]




Computers and Nanotechnology

This website is helpful because it contains information about nanotechnology in computers and the advancements of the nanotechnology in computers. They explained that over the past 10 years that the technology in laptops is as small as an average thumb. Some people don’t like nanotechnology because they complain that we should be making computers faster more than smaller. The website also displays the future of computers and what scientists are working towards. One goal is to make computers to transfer information straight to the brain instead of to the screen. It also explained about hackers and if they are able to hack into your body with nanotechnology they could kill you.

Module One Post Three [Mathematical Equation Helps Scientists in Nanotechnology]



How a mathematical equation opened a new frontier in nanotechnology


This website is helpful because it displays an explanation for an excellent equation for measuring the shape and weight of nano-objects such as viruses. The equations are made by professor John Sader at the University of Melbourne. It explains that it will require more force to push heavier objects. If you accelerate a particle you measure how fast it goes to figure out the mass. That is called (MS). This website is a bit complicated but it helps you realize how math is used to measure nano-objects/ particles.

  Responsible Nanotechnology and Math

This website is good because it is a .org website and it contains a graph which displays the evolution of nanotechnology from 2000- 2020. The four nanostructures/ nanosystems are Passive nanostructures (2000), Active nanostructures (2005), Systems of nanosystems (2010) and Molecular nanosystems. This Website Interests me because it explains how nanotechnology evolved from being only able to perform one task to be able to have thousands of moving parts to multiple jobs at once. I find it amazing that something so

small is able to do such big things that us humans can’t do on our own.


This website displays the many advantages of using nanotechnology like low cost and faster speeds. This website also displays the disadvantages and cons of nanotechnology such as how it will affect rich and poor.


Module One Post One [What is Nanotechnology]


What is Nanotechnology

Nanotechnology is technology so small that humans can’t see it. This site explains how nanotechnology can help in many subjects like biology or physics. Richard Feynman is the scientist who made it on December 29, 1959. In 1 inch there is 25,400,000 nano-meters. The website is good because it is a government website and has lot’s of information and examples for most ages to understand.

Everything is the world has atoms and nanotechnology is about controlling those atoms. Even high school microscopes cannot see most forms of nanotechnology. The website helps because it explains that scientist who study nanotechnology need specific technology such as scanning tunnelling microscope (STM) and the atomic force microscope (AFM).

Now that people have discovered nanotechnology they have been trying to find new ways to use it.
