What better way to learn about probability than to
work with jelly beans? Each pair of 4^{th}
graders were given a plate full of jelly beans. They had to determine the probability of
choosing each color. After recording
their data, each student chose 2 jelly beans to eat. The students then had to determine how the probability
for choosing each color had changed. After
recording their data, the pair was able to eat their jelly beans!
