Dear Teacher,

There are many candy activities out there, but none quite covered the quantitative skills I wanted my middle school students to practice so I designed my own.

With this activity, students will focus on making quantitative observations while also graphing data and calculating averages and percentages.

Log in to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Determine the meaning of symbols, key terms, and other domain-specific words and phrases as they are used in a specific scientific or technical context relevant to grades 6–8 texts and topics.
Follow precisely a multistep procedure when carrying out experiments, taking measurements, or performing technical tasks.
Use measures of center and measures of variability for numerical data from random samples to draw informal comparative inferences about two populations. For example, decide whether the words in a chapter of a seventh-grade science book are generally longer than the words in a chapter of a fourth-grade science book.
Understand that statistics can be used to gain information about a population by examining a sample of the population; generalizations about a population from a sample are valid only if the sample is representative of that population. Understand that random sampling tends to produce representative samples and support valid inferences.
Giving quantitative measures of center (median and/or mean) and variability (interquartile range and/or mean absolute deviation), as well as describing any overall pattern and any striking deviations from the overall pattern with reference to the context in which the data were gathered.
