Vivian Yen 5/10/17 ESL Mrs. Butterworth Chapter 17 279-291 279. I think Marco Polo’s increased Europeans’ interest in Asia, because people were curious about the China look like. 280. Because the Italian merchants had complete control of the market in Europe. 281. The Europeans want from Africa was the gold, because if they get the gold directly from African then they can get lower price and buy more gold. 282. Scientists help explorers draw better maps and other new navigational tools, such as the magnetic compass, astrolabe, and improved sea chart, also helped sailors go farther on ocean voyages. Explorers help scientists brought back first- hand knowledge about landmasses and bodies of water, great advances were made in cartography. 283. Portuguese think they could sail around Africa to China, and they wanted to keep other European countries from using this sea route. 284. I think Ferdinand and Isabella agreed finance Columbus’s expedition were because it was not worth to try, and then benefits could be great.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
