is an opportunity for you to engage with texts and demonstrate competency in citing sources, formulating an argument, and supporting an argument with textual evidence. You should treat this essay as a way to test ideas you may use for the final project.

Formulation is a term used in various senses in various applications, both the material and the abstract or formal. Its fundamental meaning is the putting together of components in appropriate relationships or structures, according to a formula. Etymologically formula is the diminutive of the Latin forma, meaning shape. In that sense a formulation is creates according to the standard for the product.
Disciplines in which one might use the word formulation in the abstract sense include logic, mathematics, linguistics, legal theory, and computer science. For details, see the related articles.
In more material senses the concept of formulation appears in the physical sciences, such as physics, chemistry, and biology. It also is ubiquitous in industry, engineering and medicine, especially pharmaceutics.
In pharmacy, a formulation is a mixture or a structure such as a capsule, tablet, or an emulsion, prepared according to a specific procedure (call a “formula”). Formulations are a very important aspect of creating medicines, since they are essential to ensuring that the active part of the drug is deliver to the correct part of the body, in the right concentration, and at the right rate (not too fast and not too slowly). A good example is a drug delivery system that exploits supersaturation.
They also need to have an acceptable taste (in the case of pills, tablets or syrups), last long enough in storage still to be safe and effective when used, and be sufficiently stable both physically and chemically to be transport from where they manufacture to the eventual consumer. Competently designed formulations for particular applications are safer, more effective, and more economical than any of their components used singly.
