Statistical Analysis with m&m’s ~ So much fun!

We just finished a math project that really caught the kids’ attention.  We did a statistical analysis of standard size bags of m&m’s candies.  The company claims that there are a certain percentage of each color of m&m’s in each standard sized bag.  We used this packet to test the claim and they turned out amazing!

We compiled all of our work into a spiral bound report.  They look great hanging up in the room.  Here is the packet on TpT if you are interested (it is $4).

The packet covers pictographs, bar graphs, circle graphs, data landmarks, converting fractions to decimals to percents, and more!  This is a great way to make a real-world connection with math!
