The students in Ms. Harman's Algebra 1 Part 2 class took bags of skittles and M&M's and organized them by color and counted how many of each color they had. They added their data to a shared google doc and created a frequency table for future use. A box plot which includes finding the median was created by each group. In a future lesson the students will learn about using frequency tables to learn out probability in getting different colored candies.
