Unit 6, Lesson 14# Summarizing a Distribution Using a Box Plot

EngageNY 45 min(s)

In this lesson, students transition from using dot plots to display data to using box plots. The lesson begins with exercises that lay the foundation for the development of a box plot. Students inspect dot plots of several sets of data and think about how to group or section the plots to get a sense of the spread of data values in each of the sections. Students construct a box plot from a given set of data.
