Grandma’s Apples

Problem:

Which apple contains the most seeds?

Grandma’s ApplesHypothesis:

If we take 7 types of apples and core them, then we think that the Red Delicious apple will have the most seeds because we think that larger apples have more seeds.

Grandma’s ApplesHypothesis: The Vote

Fuji Apple:1

Gala Apple:7

Lunch Room Apple:

Ambrosia Apple:

4

Red Delicious Apple:

3

Pacific Rose Apple:6

Grandma’s ApplesMaterials:

• Napkin
• Spork
• Paper plate
• Different type of apples
• Gala
• Fuji
• Pacific Rose
• Lunch Room
• Red Delicious
• Ambrosia
• Pencil
• Data Sheet

Grandma’s ApplesProcedure:

• Step:
• Take an apple and have an adult cut the apple in segments
• Using a spork, core the apple to see the seeds
• Count the seeds of the different type of apples
• Tape seeds to sentence strip
• Record data

• Record data

Grandma’s ApplesResults:

Our data revealed that size does not matter when we finished the exploration activity. The Red Delicious apple was the largest of all the apples. However, it only had two seeds.

Grandma’s ApplesConclusion:

Our hypothesis was correct. The largest apple had the most seeds. However, we also concluded that size does not determine how many seeds an apple may have. In conclusion, we also noted that because many of the apples were relatively the same, size may not be a determining factor when counting seeds.
