Data and Probability: Marshmallow Madness

Upper grade and middle schoolers make predictions, collect data, and interpret the data as it relates to the concept of probability. They work with a partner tossing marshmallows and recording if they land on their side or on their bottom. Data is recorded, and students calculate the results in terms of fractions. Sweet!
