The cost of getting things right will pale in comparison to complying with strict regulation from a government agency.

Comment M&M Fun Packs (Score 1, Insightful) 90

This was for a college course, but should work for middle school students too. I distributed fun packs of M&Ms to my students and had them count the number of each color and the total number of pieces in each pack. Nice illustration of mean, median, and mode, and a good lead-in to a discussion of variation.
