Can you tell me exactly what a polymer is? I was reading over lecture notes and I just saw the word and i didnt have anything written to explain it. Is it just two of the same monomer put together?

Yes, a polymer is a larger structure made up of monomers. A macromolecule is a biological polymer, but there are of course other real-world polymers.
