Valentine Hearts Smartboard Activity - Laura Candler - TeachersPayTeachers.com: "Candy math activities are always fun, but they should also tap into higher level thinking. This Valentine Hearts Investigation engages the class in collecting data from 10 boxes of colored valentine heart candies and making predictions about a new box. As they work, they apply statistical concepts such as range, mode, median, and mean. This activity comes with a Smartboard Notebook 10 file, but the Smartboard is not a requirement. In this zip file, you'll find teacher directions, student activity pages, a class data chart, and a pdf file showing a typical classroom's results."
