decision.

each student still having M&Ms chooses to continue or cash out.

Split or Steal
For each round you play, record what you and your opponent agree on in your discussions. Then, record what both of you actually chose. At the end of each
round, circle the winning player(s) (if any) and draw a line through the losing player(s) (if any.)
