Smarties percentages

This was a nice easy and fun way to explore percentages and pie charts - plus it was edible!


We each had a packet of Smarties, and sorted them into colours. Then we arranged them in a circle. We marked off the different colours on the outside circle, which, very conveniently, was divided into 100 spaces. 


Here are more photos:


And the finished pie charts look like this:



Thanks to printablepaper.net for the paper!

    1. Ha ha! Was it cajoling those Smarties into a circle that was the hard bit, Mimi?
