Which flavor of chewing gum has the longest lasting flavor?
If we measured how long Big Red, Stride Mint, and 5 gum fruit flavor would last, then stride mint would last the longest because it says on commercials and the website "The ridiculously long lasting gum."(2010 Cadbury Adams USA LLC)
Hypothesis
Independent Variable
The type of chewing gum flavors (cinnamon, mint, and fruity)
Dependent Variable
The amount of time until the flavor runs out.
Constants
Person chewing
Same pace of chewing
only 1 piece per kind of gum
Controlled Experiment
The Controlled Experiment could be to test how long bubble gum flavor lasts because bubble gum flavor is the "original" flavor.
Procedure
1. buy 3 flavors of gum(Big red, 5 Fruit, and Stride Mint)

2. Create a table that shows columns labeled amount of time in seconds and observations

3. Label the rows with the kind of gum you chose
4. Grab a stopwatch, and start it as you start chewing 1 piece of gum
5. Stop the stopwatch when your flavor has run out completely
6. record the time that is on your stop watch
7. Repeat #s 5 and 6 with the other two flavors of gum you chose
8. Record any observations
9. when you are finished you take your data table and make any kind of graph that you desire
10. Have fun with this experiment
Conclusion
The hypothesis that Stride would have the longest lasting flavor is declined. 5 gum had the longest lasting flavor at 51:50.17 minutes. Stride and 5 gum flavor lasted only about 3 seconds apart with Stride on top. None of the brands had a flavor lasting below 26 minutes, and none exceeded over an hour. 5 gum had a review of 4.55 out of 10 (2006-2010 Viewpoints Network), Stride had a review of 4.4 out of 5 (2010 SharedReviews.com Inc.), and last and least Big Red had a review of 3 out of 5. (1999-2010 Shopping.com, Inc.)
Some ways that the experiment wasn't as accurate is that each person had only one brand of gum. This effected the flavor because some people chew gum at different paces allowing it to lose flavor faster or slower. If we tested this again, each of our group members would have one of each brand and average out the times so we can get a more accurate answer.

21st Century Skills
Skill I: Collaboration
I have worked effectively with others because even though my group members are my friends we succeeded in this experiment even while having fun doing it
Skill II: Information & Communications Technology Literacy
I used many resources other then the computer. I used the best resource possible in order to find out the best possible information.
