M&Ms Count and Crunch

Middle schoolers practice skills involving statistics and probability by making predictions on number of each color candy in one pound bag of M&Ms. They record both guesses and actual quantities, calculate percentages, and create bar graphs to represent their data. Students then determine weight and diameter of single candy, and calculate probability of assigned situations.
