Methods

 

Do you like cooking? Or have you ever read a recipe – it gives you a list of ingredients you need, with the amounts, and then a list of instructions on how to make the cake or curry.

 

 

This recipe really works btw

For Example:

 

Meringues

 

Ingredients:

 

4 egg whites

115g castor sugar

115g icing sugar

 

  1. 1.Turn on the oven to 120°C

  2. Separate the egg whites from the yellow

  3. Whisk the egg whites until they are stiff and can form mountain peaks

  4. Turn down your electric beater and add 1 dessertspoon full of castor sugar at a time.  Be careful not to overbeat it

  5. Using a metal spoon, slowly fold in the icing sugar.  At this point you can also add a drop of food colouring to colour your meringues or chocolate chips or vermicelli.  Just be careful not to over mix it.

  6. Cover your baking trays with wax paper.

  7. Using one large and one smaller spoon, spoon the meringues onto the baking tray.

  8. Bake for 1 1/4  to 1 1/2  hours.

 

 

A method is a set of instructions on how to do the practical.  (This is the same as instructional writing you do in your English lessons).

 

When you read a method, you should be able to do the practical with no other help, so when you write a method, you must write it in the same way.

 

  • A method must be chosen and recorded in enough detail so that it can be repeated by someone else to get the same result.

  • The method must be written in numbered point form and in the third person.

  • You need to know the correct names for common laboratory equipment.

  • You must include volumes and masses of the chemicals you may be using.

And lastly, Don’t waffle!  Methods should be written so they have all the details needed but with no rambling on!

this recipie works btw!
