Seventh graders explore the concept of box and whisker plots. In this box and whisker plots instructional activity, 7th graders plot data on a box and whisker plot. Students discuss the mean, median, and mode of the data. Students discuss range, minimum, and maximum.
In this box-and-whisker plots learning exercise, middle schoolers solve and complete 5 different types of problems. First, they find the median and the upper and lower quartiles. Then, students make a box-and-whisker plot to display the data set. In addition, they use the box-and-whisker plot to find the lower and upper extreme in the data set.
Students explore the concept of box and whisker plots.  In this box and whisker plots instructional activity, students enter data for the cost of cd's, brother's ages, temperatures, and miles traveled on weekends into lists in the calculator.  Students plot the data using a box and whisker plots.  Students find the quartile range of the data and the median of the data.
In this box and whisker plot worksheet, students create a box and whisker plot from a given set of data. They identify the lower quartile, upper quartile, the mean, and outliers. This one-page worksheet contains 20 sets of numbers from which to create a box and whisker plot.
Middle schoolers discover how to relate collected data with a box and whiskers graph in a number of formats. They collect, organize, create, and interpret a box and whiskers graph. Pupils interpret the difference between sets of data, and share their results with the class. This is a good lesson to introduce what a Box and Whiskers graph is, and how they are best-used.
Students explore the concept of box and whisker plots. In this box and whisker plot lesson, students make box and whisker plots about the height and weight of the Houston Rockets. Students compare the plots when an outlier is included and excluded. Students determine mean and median of the data.
Eighth graders research box plots on the Internet. They gather real life statistics and analyze the collected statistics by making multiple box plots on the TI-83 calculator.
Students create a box and whisker plot and compare the mean, median, and mode of a set of data.
In this graphing calculator activity, students use the graphing calculator to organize statistical data and create box-and-whisker plots. After exploring the given demonstration, students use the internet to locate information concerning local temperatures. After inputting the information, students draw a box-and-whisker plot, identify the median, upper quartile, lower quartile and other statistical information. Seven fill in the blank questions are available for practice.
Seventh graders are provided with a step-by-step process for creating a box-and-whisker plot. The instructional activity serves as an introduction to the concept and students should have prerequisite knowledge regarding mean, median, and range of a set of data. Additionally, the instructional activity uses data sets for which the number of elements is divisible by four, facilitating the creation of quartiles.
For this analyzing data lesson using the TI-Nspire, young statisticians make a box-and-whisker plot of mean monthly temperatures of three cities.  Young scholars compare the box-and-whisker plot of the data with a dot plot of the data.  Students discuss the quartiles and spread of the data.
High schoolers explore nutritional information for several fast food hamburgers using statistical applications. In this statistics lesson, students analyze calories, fat, and sodium content of various fast food restaurants. High schoolers also create box-and-whisker plots using the data they find.
Young scholars investigate the concept of using box and whisker plots. They demonstrate how to use them to compute median, mode, and range. Students compare and contrast the complete and systematic processes use to solve problems. This is done with written explanations for how to solve each problem.
Analyze, interpret, and display one and two-variable data in box-and-whisker plots. Engage learners in a whole-class discussion regarding the construction of box and whisker plots. They complete a worksheet embedded in the plan which gives them further practice. An excellent math lesson with extensions and links!
Students collect and analyze data. In this statistics lesson, students use a box and whisker plot to investigate and analyze their data. They define relation, patterns and function using the data.
Students explore how to construct box and whisker plots as they actively participate in being a part of one based upon their heights. As an extension of the lesson, students explore how to interpret a graph of this type.
In this graphing activity, students compare two sets of data using box and whisker plots. They calculate the median in each data set given and order the data from lowest to highest to locate the middle number. Then, students record their conclusions.
Baseball and statistics go hand-in-hand and knowing how to interpret, compare, and display this information is a key skill for any middle schooler. Using two sets of data, have young statisticians answer questions by constructing and comparing different representations of the data especially lineplots (dotplots),  stemplots (including back-to-back stemplots) five number summaries, and boxplots. 
Students predict the outcome of a basketball game.  In this what are the odds lesson, students convert from standard units of measure to metric.  They organize data and create stem-and-leaf plots, box-and-whisker plots, and scatter plots.  Students identify the mean, median, mode, and outliers of given data.
In this box-and-whisker plots worksheet, 9th graders solve and complete 14 different problems that include comparing various box-and-whisker plots. First, they determine the median for each set of data and plot the lesser range. Then, students determine the upper and lower quartile for each set of data. They also determine the plot that illustrates the larger range of data.
