The comprehensive Oreo database

Here, representing many hours of data collection, including several notebook-equipped excursions to Cub Foods, I present to you the Comprehensive Oreo Database.

I would like to replace the present system initial licensure exams in secondary mathematics teaching with a single task: Design a mathematics lesson around some or all of this information, including answer key for all tasks.

Until this happens (at which point the information below will be embargoed for test-security purposes), I share it with you.

  1. Mass per serving in grams similar to fat column? Or left “open to interpretation” on purpose? (Hey kids, what would be a good choice for the missing unit? … a good question to get at students’ conceptual understanding of mass!)

  2. Also, speaking as a Canadian, I am astounded at the choices Oreo offers state-side.

  3. The first. I’ll let you believe that I meant to do this.
