The Sonata of the Classical Period

Page 1 of 3

~Introduction~

I love cereal however, I hate it when it gets soggy!  I must eat some cereal super-fast because if not, they get soggy quickly while I watch TV.  Knowing which brand/type of cereal takes the longest to get soggy is a must if you want to eat cereal while watching cartoons in the morning!

~Problem Statement~

Which type of cereal gets soggy the slowest?

~Hypothesis~

My Hypothesis is if I test the most common kid cereals: Fruit Loops, Cocoa Pebbles, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, and Lucky Charms, the type with hardest crunch will last the longest (Fruit Loops).  Lucky Charms will get soggy the fastest because they have the least crunch.  

~Materials List~

Quantity:        Item Description:

4 – x-small        Pyrex glass bowls

4                Plastic Spoons

1 – 27.35g        Froot Loop Cereal

1 –27.35g        Lucky Charms Cereal

1 – 27.35g        Cocoa Pebbles Cereal

1 – 27.35g        Cinnamon Toast Crunch Cereal

1 – 50mL        2% Organic White Milk

1                Phone Camera (Pictures and Stop Watch)

1 – 500mL        Measuring Cup        

~Procedure~

  1. Gather all materials
  2. Pour measured cereal into each of the 4 bowls
  3. Add 1 plastic spoon to each bowl
  4. Pour milk into each bowl quickly
  5. Let the cereal sit for 1 min. and then begin to touch/taste each cereal
  6. Repeat step 5 every minute until each cereal is soggy.
  7. After each 1-minute check, if the cereal is soggy, record the time and remove from the race.
  8. Repeat steps 1 – 7 two more times

~Data Table~

[pic 1]

~Results~

The purpose of this experiment was to determine which cereal gets soggy the slowest.

The results of my test show the cereal with the most coating lasted the longest and not the most crunch.

Each round of testing denied my prediction.  Cinnamon Toast Crunch Cereal came in first for each test while Froot Loops came in second.  Cocoa Pebbles Cereal was soggy the fastest in each trial and not Lucky Charms Cereal as predicted.
