Unit 6, Lesson 16# Understanding Box Plots

EngageNY 45 min(s)

Students summarize a data set using box plots, the median, and the interquartile range. Students use box plots to compare two data distributions. The activities in this lesson engage students in thinking about everything they learned in the last several lessons about summarizing and describing data distributions. They consider graphical displays of numerical data-box plots and dot plots.
