PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a fun math lab with candy! The students will take some skittles (or M & M's work too) and gather data based on the number and colors they have. The little bags of halloween candy work great, or a large bag poured in small cups. The students will find the relative frequency of each color, make a bar graph, a frequency polygon, and a pie chart with correct degrees. The students will then be asked to analyze their results to communicate them to you. Next, they will be given temperatures for an entire month and will need to find the mean, median, and mode as well as create a box and whisker plot. They will then have to decide which measure of central tendency best describes their data and tell why. It is a fun activity! I did this with a group of seniors, and they loved it!
