Getting Started with M&M’s

Ready to help us gather data? What to count M&M’s with us?


The process is really quite easy and we will take you through it step by step.

Here’s what you need to do:

  • Get a bag of M&M’s. It doesn’t matter what size the bag is but only want to count M&M’s that come in the standard colors. That means no Christmas, Coconut, or Fall M&M’s because they don’t use the standard colors. Sadly, that puts the new pretzel M&M’s out as well because those bags lack yellow.
  • Once you have your bag of M&M’s all you need now is to count up the color of M&M’s.
You might want to head over the Downloads page to get some worksheets to help you or your students through the counting process (designed for third grade) or a letter to send home to parents to let them know what you are doing in math class. If you develop any other resources what would go well with our site, let us know about them!
  • After you have gone through the counting process it will be time to record that data to our spreadsheet by clicking the Take the Survey button below.

Yeah it’s that simple! So what are you waiting for?
