Math and M&M's

In our AP Statistics class, Mrs. Shulman and her students were busy crunching numbers (literally). Students were learning about statistics with a fun hands on lesson with M&M's. While carefully counting the amount of colored M&M's from different bags, students came up with some shocking conclusions. The students discovered that the number of chocolates per bag of M&M's vary and do not always follow the company's published estimates. They also used the statistics skills they developed over the year to justify the results and eventually snack on some tasty chocolate. ~Renee Saff
