In the Jellybean Tree, watch as a tree sprouts with different colored jellybeans. Red, orange, yellow, green, and purple jellybeans will appear. Each time the game is played there will be a different total number of jellybeans and a different number of each color of jellybean; always between 25 and 50 total. Users can then “pick” the jellybeans and drag and drop them to their correct places in a bar graph shown on the other side of the screen. They also change the view so that the bar graph can be a pie chart. Finally, the user must answer five questions involving the “jellybean tree.”
