In this activity students determine which package of Necco Sweet Heart Candies is the best deal.  Students are then asked to convince us using multiple methods or through tables or graphs.  Finally, we ask students to create their own Sweet Heart Candy deal that is not the best or worst deal compared to these three online deals.
