This Instructional Activity is a part of the Lesson 17, Unit 8, Grade 6. In this lesson, students continue to create box plots from data sets. They compare and interpret box plots for distributions with the same median but very different IQRs, and use the plots to answer questions. As students work, make sure that they correctly identify the five-number summary of each data set. If students have trouble making comparisons, prompt them to study the medians, IQRs, and ranges the data sets. Then, notice how they compare the box plots and whether they interpret the different measures in the context of the given situation.
