Storyboard Text

  • Claudia stood solemnly in her bedroom as she anxiously thought about the math test she had tomorrow. She is trying to study, but is way too hungry.
  • Claudia's nerves about her math test stimulates her sympathetic nervous system, which accelerates her heartbeat and makes her sweat.
  • 2 + 2 = 4?
  • Claudia could not focus on her studying without fulfilling her need for a nice meal. Claudia's hunger caused her to get up and go to the kitchen to look for some food.
  • Claudia eats the chocolate chip cookies, which supply her with glucose, a major source of energy in her body. She also eats a cheeseburger, the carbohydrates stimulating the neurotransmitter serotonin, which helps calm her anxiety.
  • By fulfilling her hunger, Claudia helped her body to maintain homeostasis, which is the maintenance of a steady internal state.
  • Now that Claudia is full, happy, and determined to get a good grade on her math test, she is given the incentive to study for her math test, which she does for the rest of the night.
  • I LOVE MATH!
