PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This activity tests students on their knowledge of fractions, decimals, and percents. It also test probability, statistics, and graphing. To make the activity easier presort bags of M&M to ensure easy fractions. Use fun-size bags to make the activity shorter. Use regular size bags or tubes of mini M&M to stretch the activity out and/or make it more challenging.

The activity asks students to sort a bag of M & M into colors and record the information on a table. Then students are asked to write a fraction, decimal, and percent to represent each color in relation to the bag as a whole. Students are then asked to find the probability of several scenarios. The next portion asks the students to get in groups of 2-5 and record each others information and then find the mean, mode, median, and range of each color. In the final step students are asked to graph the group totals.

I do this activity every year with with my math team students. They love it!
