Double Stuff Oreos

by Patrick Meyer and Craig Bump


Focus Question

Do Double Stuff Oreo's really have double the amount of stuffing?


Hypothesis

I think that due to supply and demand they won't make the double stuff Oreo really double stuff.



Materials

  • 3 Single Stuff Oreo
  • 3 Double Stuff Oreo
  • Triple beam balance scale
  • 6 paper towels
Triple beam balance scale

Variables

  • Independent: The amount of cream
  • Dependent: The weight of the cream
  • Controlled: The weight of the paper towel

Project

  1. First we placed the paper towel on the triple beam balance scale and recorded the weight.
  2. Then we gently sliced the cream off the Oreo and placed the cream onto the scale.
  3. We subtracted the weight of napkin from the weight of the cream.
  4. Then we recorded the remaining weight.
  5. We repeated this process a number of times with both single and double stuff Oreo's.

Results

  1. Trial 1: Double Stuff = 9.1 - 2.4 ( Paper Towel Weight ) = 6.7  Single = 5.3 - 2.4 ( Paper Towel ) = 2.9  2.9 x 2 = 5.8
  2. Trial 2: Double Stuff = 9.3 - 2.5 = 6.8  Single = 6.4 - 2.4 = 3.9  3.9 x 2 = 7.8
  3. Trail 3: Double Stuff = 9.4 - 2.4 = 7 Single = 6.0 - 2.2 = 3.8  3.8 x 2 = 7.6

Conclusion

In conclusion to our research and our experiment, our hypothesis was correct. It may not be due to supply and demand, but after the three trials, our research shows that double stuff Oreo's do not have double the amount of stuffing.
