Step 1: As you watch the first video, think about math: What math do you notice in the video? What do you wonder (math related questions)?

Step 2:Write at least one noticing and one wonder on the sheet (or in your notebook).

Step 3: How many Skittles did it take to fill the lightbulb? Estimate. What is your "too low" estimate, your "too high" estimate, and your "just right" estimate? Write them down.

Step 4: Use the picture below to decide what you know. (“I know there were ___ yellow, ___ orange, ___ green, ___ purple, and ___ red.”)

Step 5: Use what you know to figure out how many Skittles were used to fill the jar.

Show your strategy. Add labels to show your thinking. Use some of the tools or posters from our Math page. You can use Hanna's work from a previous task as a guide to know what we expect.

Step 6: Watch the 2nd video, which shows how the man counted the Skittles. Watch the video and/or look at the picture to see how he solved the problem; Compare it to how you solved it.

Answer these questions:

1) How did he solve the problem? What did he do?

2) How is his strategy different than yours?

3) How is his strategy similar to yours?

(Optional) Make a Flipgrid sharing your answers to these questions.
