Of course, while I am standing in the check-out line with my one 56 oz bag of m&ms, behind 3 other people with cart-loads full of merchandise, I drop the 56 oz bag of m&ms and they spill all over the floor. I paid, replaced the bag, then left.
And of course, again, we had an hour until the show started at 1:30, so we decided to head south a bit to look at a car Steve saw on Craigslist. That turned out to be a bust, and as we passed Pizza Works, we decided to stop for a bite. The kids watched the huge model train set, and Steve and I cracked open two large cans of Foster's Beah. We'd try for the cinema closer to Pizza Works at 2:30.
And of course, by the time we left, it was just after 2:30. So, there goes the movie. Which is OK. We drove around a bit sightseeing along the coast, and into beautiful Essex...such a quaint, historic town...finding ourselves near Gillette Castle. So, of course, we went for a quick visit walking around the stone structure and letting the kids run off the sillies.
It was a very nice day.
Today, I put that 56 oz bag of m&ms to work.
My fellow teachers will know this. But, I share it so that the next time you find yourself at BJ's purchasing a 56 oz bag of m&ms, you can do this with your kids and justify the purchase. Just be sure to hold onto that bag in the check-out line.

We also used the graph to find the most, the least, the total of all, the total of 2 or more colors, the difference when some are eaten, and the difference between two colors.
Of course, we still have about 40 oz left.
