    1.0 INTRODUCTION

    While my children liked M&Ms, they always left the brown ones in the bowl, untouched. This happened whenever they had M&Ms to share. When I asked them why, they said the brown ones tasted different, tasted funny.

    After a class discussion, enter the hypothesis that we developed here.

    What predictions are we making about the results of the experiment we will do?
