    how do you identify what a polymer will look like given its starting material, which usally is a carbon chain with some double bonds.

    Well it obviously depends on the monomers your talking about. If its a radical propagation it will usually be like a 1,4 addition of conjugated dienes or just repeating alkane monomers if it's one double bond. If its a polyamide or polyester, just connect the monomers and take away an H20 (or HCl for acyl halide monomer).
