### What type of gum keeps its flavor for the longest?

Viridiana Lara

8th grade

Dirksen Junior High School

Objective
• To find out which of my three gum brands keep their flavor the longest.
Hypothesis
• If I chew the big red, double mint, and juicy fruit gum, than the big red gum will keep its flavor for the longest amount of time.
Variables
• Independent variable: Gum brand
• Dependant variable: Each gums flavor lasted its own amount of time to lose its flavor.
Materials
• clock
• Juicy Fruit gum
• Double mint gum
• Big Red gum
• mouth
Procedure

Step 1- Buy the gum needed.

Step 2- Chew gum until flavor is out.

Step 3- Keep track of how many minutes the flavor lasted.

Step 4- Record how much time the flavor lasted.

Step 5- Repeat steps 2 and 3 for a total of 3 trials for all three gum brands.

Conclusion
• My lab turned out well because my hypothesis did support my results.
• I accepted my hypothesis using the data I collected because I think I did my experiment correctly and when I added and divided ,my average results were constant.
• My lowest average was juicy fruit.
Conclusion (continued)
• My lowest average was juicy fruit.
• The highest average was the big red gum.
• Some possible errors that could have occurred were probably not keeping track of how much time the flavor lasted the right way.
Conclusion (continued)
• One thing I learned was that neither of these three gum brands keeps their flavor for a long time.
• Now I know that when I buy gum, neither of these three gum brands are a good choice.
Acknowledgements
• I want to acknowledge my mom for buying the gum to complete my experiment.
