PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

There's a sure fire way of getting your students attention in Mathematics and that's through candy! I wanted a fun activity for my class of sweet tooths and I wanted to teach them about the four measures of central tendancy - mean, mode, median and range!

Each group was given a packet of M and M's and then reported back to the class with how many of each colour they had. Once all M and M's were counted, discussion focused on each measure of central tendancy and how to calculate them.

This M and M investigation sheet allowed students to record each group's data and calculate each group's mean, median, mode and range.

This was a fun activity which enabled me to teach these key concepts and was followed up at the end of the week with a Skittles Investigation which also focussed on mean, mode, median and range! My Skittles Investigation is also listed on TPT.

ACARA - ACMSP171 - Calculate mean, median, mode and range for sets of data. Interpret these statistics in the context of data.
