Smarties Statistics

As an introduction to our Statistics Unit we had the following scenario....

The Smarties factory colour sorting Machine has broken down and until it is fixed we have to sort by hand. We need to research how many smarties in a packet, what colours and how many of each colour. What a bonus that at the end we got to eat our Smarties. 

The key learning was...
Creating a Tally charts to collect data
Creating a Bar Graphs to display data
Finding Mean, median and mode
Drawing conclusions
