    How many people are expecting to share these candies?

  • Teacher note
    My kids were discussing how to divide a bowl of candies "fairly". My eldest suggested to split them according to the kids' ages. They went on to argue the merits of using weight, height and other criteria to decide how many candies to give to each person.

Act Two

  • Teacher note
    How many people? Does colour matter? Are we able to cut the candies?
