We took part in the student blogging challenge milk chocolate M&Ms data gathering on week 5 . That was a very good idea! Kids got interested. They were really enthusiastic about counting the number of M&Ms in the 50 gram packet of milk chocolate and adding the numbers to the form.
In fact, we had 17 red, 9 yellow, 2 orange, 20 green, 4 brown and no blue sweets. So, my students supposed that was the green colour which would have the most. But now when we follow the current tallying on the spreadsheet, we realize that it's only a guess and not the absolute truth. We are looking forward to seeing the final results at the end of November.
As it was recommended, we used our M&Ms to create a pattern before eating them. Have a look at it:
Not so impressive as the "Geometric M&Ms" but we did our best! And, of course, we wished we had had more packets. Maybe next time ...
P.S. Hope it was a helpful contribution .
