Following the link between the ultimate “half life” regarding the M& M are gathered, the sweets are no longer needed.

Each group should plot for a graph (Figure 3) the sheer number of items of candy staying after every of the “shakes” and connect each successive point from the graph with a light line. Each team should plot the AVERAGE VALUES for the class as a whole and connect that by a heavier line on the same graph. AND, on a single graph, each team should plot points where, after each and every “shake” the starting quantity is split by precisely two and link these points by a line that is differently colored. (This line starts at 100; the point that is next 100/ 2, or 50; the second point is 50/2, or 25; and so forth.)

Following the graphs are plotted, the instructor should guide the course into contemplating: 1) Why did not each group obtain the exact same outcomes? 2) Which follows the mathematically calculated line better?
