2.) Patterns and Effects of Interaction- Even though inventions were made in one country, the idea or machine itself spread throughout the whole world.

3.) Effects of Technology- The inventing of machines to do human work made jobs occur faster, cost less, and be more efficient.

4.) Social and Gender Structure- People of the lower class generally worked in poor working conditions in the factories. Women now began to work in factories more like men.

5.) Interactions Among Societies- The inventions of the steam engine and the new way of communication over wires made it possible to communicate quicker. They could travel faster to trade and send messages easier when needed.
