Post Halloween Math


Spyder got his candy loot out today and started counting the pieces. The homeschool mom in me immediately suggested that he count the different types of candy as well so he could figure percentages and ratios.

He looked up at me and said, "COOL!" then took the candy into the computer room. About 30 minutes into his activity, he came to me with a piece of paper which not only showed amounts of the different types of candy, but which also showed graphs detailing which candies were most frequently given.

He is so completely, utterly his father's son.

Now, for more in-depth stuff: how many packets of M&Ms is one Kit Kat bar worth?
