Mathematician Wright has a problem! She has questions about a bag of jelly beans that she purchased and she needs help estimating, counting, and creating graphs to solve her problem. Students of all ages can explore this math challenge (with varying amounts of support) while also exploring the scientific method. This is a hands-on activity requiring a bag of jelly beans or Jelly Belly Belly Flops. It also meets the common core standards for 6th grade statistics (calculating mean, median, and mode).
It is time to begin Teaching Beyond the Bubbles!
