### My Smarties Project

• When we did the Smartie project, I learned that just because there is a great possibility of picking a certain color doesn’t mean it will be picked.

• The most probable color from my original box of Smarties is brown.

• It helps because everything from making graphs to putting a decimal number to a percent is easier just from the touch of a button.

### What I have Learned About Probability with Smarties

• What I have learned about probability doing this project is that if you have a high percentage of a certain Smartie, you are most likely to pull out that color from the box.

• The most probable color from my original box of Smarties was brown.

• Spreadsheet simplifies Math because you are able to make charts and the information is right in front of you. This makes it easier to understand probability.

### Kelsey’s Smarties Box

• I learned that when you have more of a color you are more likely to have that color than the rest but since there is still other colors there is still a chance of getting another color.

• My most probable was yellow.

• How does spreadsheet simplify Math? “It doesn’t.”

### My Smarties Assignment

• When completing this project, I leaned how to use a spreadsheet. I also learned how to use certain formulas and learned about probability.

• The most probable color of Smartie I could pull from my Smartie box would be either Purple or Orange.

• A spreadsheet simplifies math by allowing us to use different formulas and gives us a little better understanding of it.

### Smarties Peroject

• What I learned was that even though the chances seem high, there's a really bad chance that you will get the thing that has the highest probability.

• The most probable Smartie in my Smartie box was the red and the purple smarties.

• The spreadsheet helps you gain a better understanding of probability.

### My Smarties Project

• I learned that probability is the chances of you picking a certain Smartie out of a bunch.

• Pink was my most probable color.

• It makes it easier to see what's going on.

### My Smarties Project

• I learned that you only have a chance out of the number of Smarties you have to pick the colors you have.

• My most probable color from my original box of Smarties was orange.

• I don’t have to write all the information down I can just type it.

### My Smarties Project

• What I learned about probability is the chance of picking a Smartie out of the box.

• The most color that I picked out of my Smartie box is blue.

• It calculates things that would take me a long time to calculate and is easier to read.

### What I Have Learned by doing this Project

• I learned that if there's a higher percent of a certain color of smartie, you will usually choose that color of smartie. Sometimes you can still choose a smartie with a low probability though.

• The most probable colors from my original box of Smarties was green and yellow.

• Spreadsheet simplifies math because you can make charts on it so that you can see everything in front of you and it helps you to understand probability better when you see pictures of it. There are also tools that you can use so thatyou won’t make mistakes in your math.

### My Smarties Assignment

• By doing this assignment, I learned how to use MicrosoftExcel, and the the theoretical probability of a Smartie Box.

• The most probable color of Smartie in my original box would be either brown, yellow, pink, or purple.

• Spreadsheet simplifies math because it allows you to put in formulas which solves to probability problems for you. If it wasn’t for this, than calculating the problems would take too much time.

### Probability Experiment with Smarties

• What I have learned from this project was that sometimes probability can work and sometimes not. For example you might have a 45% chance of pulling pink, but instead pull a purple.

• The most probable color of from my original Smartie box was brown.

• The spreadsheet simplified math because it is easier to absorb probability and understand what the graph is telling you.

### Alisha’s Smartie Box

• I learned that the probability of getting a certain color of a Smartie is greater if there is more of that color, then what there would be if there was a less amount of the color.

• The most probable color from my original box of Smarties were red, yellow, pink, purple, and orange.

• A spread sheet simplifies math by doing the math for us, and making the graphs.
