Research (write down the words and defintions you were responsible for finding as well as the questions and answers)
Kristina: Saliva- A watery fluid, secreted (generate) into the mouth by the salivary glands, that functions in the tasting,
chewing, and swallowing. It also help moisten the mouth, and starts the digestion.
Salivary Glands- Helps create saliva. Enzyme- Any of the Various proteins, Organized from living cells and
capable of producing certain chemical changes in substances by digestion. Carbohydrate- Change to such
substances on simple chemical transformations, That forms the supporting tissue of plants and are important
for food for animals and people. Salt- A crystalline compound of sea water, ect, used for seasoning food, as a
preservative. Absorption- The state of being absorbed. What causes you to produce saliva? Saliva is produced from
response to reflexes triggering by taste and movements of the jaw muscles, joints and pressure on the teeth due too chewing.
It neutralizes acid from bacteria and among other things. How can you increase saliva production? there are lost of chemicals that can increase saliva production. Why cant you "supposedly" eat six saltine crackers in one minute? The saltine Crackers soak up all the
water/ saliva in your mouth so it makes your mouth really dry and hard to swallow. Why does it have to be "salted" saltines? How does "salt"
affect your ability to eat all six? The salt from the saltine crackers cause your mouth to water and the cracker soaks up all the saliva
in your mouth causing your mouth to become dry, and to be hard to swallow the cracker. How much "liquid" will a saltine absorb?
We did a test with 100Ml of water and the saltine cracker can soak up at least 6Ml. We did the same test a second time with 2 saltine crackers and it soaked up 12Ml.
How much saliva does a typical "normal" person produce? We did a test where we had two people spit into cups and after
we would measure how much the produced. Each person could produce an average of about 3Ml of Saliva
.small scale procedure
Is it possible to eat 3 crackers in 30 seconds.
Independant variable-Water/no water
Dependant variable-If it is possible to eat 3 crackers in 30 seconds
constant variable- time, amount of crackers, type, people
small scale conclusion
It is not possible to eat 3 crackers in 30 seconds.
Because a cracker can absorb more slavia than you can produce in 30 seconds.
you can't do it because the cracker will absorb all of your salvia and it will make it so you can't swallow

large scale procedure
Variables:
Independent ~~ Water/ No Water
Dependent ~~Time it takes to eat 6 saltine crackers
Constants ~~People, Size of cracker, Type of cracker Time limit.
Procedure (steps)
1) Get 6 Saltine Crackers
2) Have someone record you while doing this to prove if it is or isn’t possible.
3) When the timer person says “go” start eating the crackers as fast as you can.
4) When the time is up the timer will say “Stop”.
5) If there is no more crackers in your mouth of on the table then you have passed if there is crackers left over, then it is impossible.
6) Repeat Steps 1-5 a couple times to make sure results are right.


Hypothesis ~~ We don’t think we can do it because the salt from the cracker makes your mouth water because the salivary glands motioned that there was something in the mouth and caused there to be more saliva to help break it down but, The cracker soaks up all of the saliva in your mouth and causes your mouth to be dry and that makes it hard to swallow,
Large scale conclusion
Claim- It’s impossible to eat 6 crackers in one minute
Evidence- For the first trial it took Cole 1:18 it took me 1:39. For the second trial it took cole 1:30 it took me 1:45. When we had water in our mouths before we ate the crackers. It took cole 58 seconds for me it took me 59 seconds. For the second trial it took cole 40 seconds and for me it took 43. For the third trial it took Cole 40 seconds again and for me it took 56 seconds.
Explanation- The crackers absorbed all the salavia in our mouth because for an average of how much the crackers absorbed it absorbed 10.5 ml in a minute.Cole could spit 3 ml on average. I could spit 2.33ml on average.
So it is impossible to eat 6 saltine crackers in a minute. It is because of the crackers absorbing your salavia and without salavia it is impossible to swallow.

Question: It is possible to eat 6 saltine crackers in under a minute without anything to drink?

Variables:
Independent ~~ Water/ No Water
Dependent ~~Time it takes to eat 6 saltine crackers
Constants ~~People, Size of cracker, Type of cracker Time limit.

Hypothesis ~~ We don’t think we can do it because the salt from the cracker makes your mouth water because the salivary glands motioned that there was something in the mouth and caused there to be more saliva to help break it down but, The cracker soaks up all of the saliva in your mouth and causes your mouth to be dry and that makes it hard to swallow,

Materials~~ Crackers, People, Clock, Camera.

Procedure (steps)
1) Get 6 Saltine Crackers
2) Have someone record you while doing this to prove if it is or isn’t possible.
3) When the timer person says “go” start eating the crackers as fast as you can.
4) When the time is up the timer will say “Stop”.
5) If there is no more crackers in your mouth of on the table then you have passed if there is crackers left over, then it is impossible.
6) Repeat Steps 1-5 a couple times to make sure results are right.


CONCLUSION
WE think that it is impossible to eat 6 saltine crackers in under a minute without any water because all the salt from the crackers makes your mouth water but then the cracker soaks up all the saliva in your mouth. We did a test and each cracker can hold up to at least 10 ML. And each human being can produce at least 5Ml in about 30 seconds.



Cole:

When I ate the crackers 1 at a time without getting a big drink it took me 1 minuete. When I ate all three of them at a time it took me 1 minuete and 50 seconds. When I took a big drink and ate them 1 at a time it took me 50 seconds. When I held water in my mouth and ate the crackers all at once it took me 13 seconds. When I held water in my mouth and ate 2 crackers swallowed and then ate the last one it took me 23 seconds.

Materials: Clock, Paper and pencil, Saltine crackers, a person to time


Large scale procedure:
  1. Get materials
  2. don't get a drink
  3. get 6 crackers
  4. have someone time you while you eat the crackers 1 at a time as fast as you can
  5. record your time
  6. Reapeat steps 3-5 but this time get a drink
  7. then reapeaat steps 3-5 again but this time hold water in your mouth
