• Text Structure- Problem and Solution
• "A cargo ship had lost twelve containers full of 29,000 floating bathtub toys: yellow ducks, blue turtles, red beavers, green frogs"(21).﻿ OSCURS predicted the correct landing location (Alaska) (November 1992)"(23).
• Signpost- Numbers and Stats
• ﻿"The father and son team had been beachcombing together for years by the time they hauled there basket of 111 bathtub toys into the 2004 Sitka fair"(26).
• Although the OSCURS machine had calculated the landing date and destination it had not calculated for the windage.
• Tracking Trash By: Loree Griffin Burns
• Mindset- Persists Through Problems
• To figure out the time and place the toys were gonna land the scientists had to make adjustments to the OSCURS machine to calculate for the windage.
• Summary- If/Then & Aha! Huh?
• If Curt and the scientists found a more efficient and less expensive way of tracking the bottles, then they could track the way the ocean currents move our trash and where they move it.﻿
• The author used this number amount to show the amount of bathtub toys that the team found in the amount of time the father and son had been working together.
• Question
• Thinking he had the arrival date and destination correct Curt and the scientists hadn't calculated the wind factor that would throw off the date by 6 months.
• Challenging - Mind Boggling - Complication - If you don't succeed the first time find another way to do it better - Don't let failure break you down.
• I learned that tracking ocean currents can be very expensive and cost thousands of dollars for a few GPS's. Also, that ﻿ocean currents don't always stay the same and that they can change the directions they move. One thing I found hard to believe was that for the hundreds of bottles they drop at a time they only find less than a quarter.
• Question Week 2
• ﻿Is there another solution to find the bottles that they lose trying to do the experiments to track the ocean currents?
