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 plot activity, 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 activity contains 20 sets of numbers from which to create a box and whisker plot.
Learners 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. Learners compare the plots when an outlier is included and excluded. Students determine mean and median of the data.
Students create a box and whisker plot and compare the mean, median, and mode of a set of data.
In this box-and-whisker plots worksheet, 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.
For 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.
Who pays more for haircuts, men or women? Given quartile values, learners construct box and whiskers plots and interpret the results. They compare the mean and median, and discuss which is more appropriate under particular conditions. This problem can be used as an introductory lesson or as a template for a student-designed data analysis project.
Students collect and analyze data. In this statistics lesson, students display their data using excel. They plot the data on a coordinate plane and draw conclusion from their data.
Students perform experiments, plot and analyze data. For this probability lesson, students model word problems and create a box and whisker graph. They analyze the graph and discuss it with their classmates.
Eighth graders measure in feet and inches and convert to explore the relationship between the converted measurements. In this measurement lesson, 8th graders use the whisker and box plot to represent the measurement of a cat.  Students recognize the use of the median in determining the answers. Students interpret the data.
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.
Seventh graders are introduced to the concept of box-and-whisker plots. A step-by-step process for creating a box-and-whisker plot is provided. The goal of the lesson is that students study the components of a box-and-whisker plot and be able to analyze or compare sets of data using box-and-whisker plots.
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.
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.
Pupils use box and whisker plots for their data. In this algebra lesson, students use a spreadsheet to create formulas to analyze their data. They collect, organize and graph their data.
Eighth graders explore the correct use of box and whisker plors. The times when they are appropriate to use to compare data is covered. They plot data according to statistical analysis including mean, median, and mode.
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.
Students collect data and analyze it. In this statistics lesson, students interpret stem and leaf plots as they analyze their data. They organize their answers using a whisker plot to find the different quartiles.
In this graphing instructional 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.
