- Join to access all included materials
Students estimate and then count the number of each color of M&M's in their bag. In this mathematics instructional activity, students find the experimental probability of selecting each color from the bag. Students create pictographs and bar graphs of the colors of candy pieces in their bag. Students use information from the Mars, Inc. website to compute theoretical probability of each color appearing in the bags.
