    More likely, to mess up! Read widely, though, and let us know what you decide.

    thank you and i am starting to have second decisions. do you think i should change my idea? im in 9th grade what do you think?

    It's not a bad topic. Too many people in our world think they can do more than one thing at a time well -- thus all the texting and calling while driving cars and trucks -- and the accidents!

    What other examples can you think of?

    music during homework

    chewing gum during a test

    i had an idea to make a group to take a test with music and gum. another with gum only and music only and then another group with nothing. and make each group go through each situation and see which situation actually helps.

    but still like i said im having second thoughts do you think this is kind of like a 6th or 7th grade project? i don't want to look like im trying to get ridd of this

    I like your idea. One thing that you might try, though, is using different kinds of music.

    Try these different combinations:
    1. Take a test with popular music (Lady Gaga or whoever) -- make sure there are words!
    2. Take a test with classical (baroque) music (composed by Bach, Vivaldi, Handel, or Purcell).
    3. Take a test with no music.

    should i take out the gum all together, or will the gum add more thought?

  • science fair - ,

    I don't think gum would have much effect, one way or another. But the presence or absence of music and presence or absence of words in music will usually make a lot of difference.

    You should find that students test best with the baroque music and test worst with their favorite tunes (with words!) playing!

    okay remove the gum...check
    now, do you think this is enough for the science fair or should i add another experiment?

    btw You are the best thank you sooooo much for your help Writeacher
