It All About The Jewels And How They Go As One

a: Monosaccharide ~
b: a single pearl

What: "glucose is a monosaccharide. A monosaccharide is a single sugar that can be bound to many other single sugar molecules to form a polymer. The association most often used is a pearl earring and a pearl necklace. A monosaccharide is like the pearl earring, the polysaccharide is like the whole necklace. This language applies to sugar molecules. The same pattern applies to monomer and polymer which are the general terms for chemicals that are made up of multiple subunits."
