BONUS: What Sweets Can Teach Your Students

To spark interest in statistics with students, try this fun exercise of weighing a few bags of peanut M&M's and counting their contents to gather useful data.

Through applying statistics to this data on the weight, colour, quality, and other factors of the M&M’s, students take an everyday item such as candy and transform it into a powerful learning tool.
