Default what brand on bubble gum lasts the longest

My daughter has a science project due and needs surveys and statistics about bubble gum; the longest lasting, different types etc. I don't know where to go to get this type of info.

She is in the 7th grade.

Default well...here you go...

you could first look on the websites of different bubble gum, or you just look online for projects that have to do with the longest lasting gum. She could try it her self, maybe go to the store and buy 3-4 different types of gum and see which one she can taste the longest! hope this helps...

Dear Clarkann4--

It sounds like you have a dilemma that I can help you fix.
Although this project sounds hard, it is very easy. Go on a trusted site, (i.e. stride.com) and you will find statistics, possibly more info about the gum.

Other places to look would be the Google search engine, which is very reliable, as well as Yahoo! Search.

You may even want to try going on Yahoo! Answers and asking this same question- I guarantee you will get more answers there than here :P.

As for the surveys, have ten of her friends try each gum out and record how long it takes, and how much they like the gum.

The project in and of itself is extremely simple. It's a matter of getting everything together and having your ideas straight.



If you have any other questions, feel free to PM me and I will further guide you along. Good luck to your daughter!

P.S. Good work, Colleen!

The brands are bubblicious, Bazooka, Bubble yum,
Independent variable: Brands of bubble gum
Dependent Variable: Which brand lasts longer.
The constants? Do you mean controlled variables?

You should chew maybe the same size of bubble gum.
Oh by the way we did the same exact project in our biology class on friday. We have to do a power point and present it in class. Hope you do well.
