Once you have grasped the theory, you are going to demonstrate your understanding by tackling the following challenge:
You are a trainee chef working in the ISM kitchens. You have had a hard day at work, and are just about to leave for home, when your boss informs you that you will be in charge of making French fries the next day. You are excited about the responsibility being placed on you, so you decide to get a head start and peel and slice the potatoes that afternoon. You place the cut potato pieces into water and leave them there overnight. When you arrive the next day, you drain the water and are surprised to find that the potato pieces are all ‘pumped up and hard’ (like Sylvester Stallone in Rocky 4). Your boss tells you that they cannot be used to make French fries, and suggests that you should have put some salt in the water. He gives you the task of finding out what the ideal concentration of salt in water would be for leaving the potato pieces overnight without them becoming too hard or too soft.
You must design and carry out an experiment that allows you to answer the problem above. Use the rubrics to guide you, but you must include the following headings in your report: FINAL Rubric design FINALRubric DCP FINAL Rubric CE
