Independent Practice 1: Box and Whisker Plot
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.
Using NBA Statistics for Box and Whisker Plots
Students explore the concept of box and whisker plots. In this box and whisker plot lesson plan, 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.
Graphs and More
Young statisticians create and interpret various types of graphs from data gathered. The focus here is on interpreting the data and drawing appropriate conclusions. Box-and-whisker plots, frequency distributions, scatterplots, and lines of best fit are explored.
Young scholars create a box and whisker plot and compare the mean, median, and mode of a set of data.
Seventh graders are provided with a step-by-step process for creating a box-and-whisker plot. The lesson 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 lesson uses data sets for which the number of elements is divisible by four, facilitating the creation of quartiles.
Creating Box and Whisker Plots/Box-and-Whisker 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!
Box and Whisker Plots
Seventh graders explore the concept of box and whisker plots. In this box and whisker plots lesson, 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.
Graphing Calculator Activity: Box-and-Whisker Plots
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.
Introduction to Measures of Central Tendency and Variability
Students calculate the mean, median, mode, range, and interquartile range for a set of data. They create a box and whisker plot using paper, pencil and technology.
Box and Whiskers Plots
Students collect and analyze data. In this statistics lesson plan, students use a box and whisker plot to investigate and analyze their data. They define relation, patterns and function using the data.
What the Cell..ular?
Eighth graders create and conduct a survey on cell phone usage. In this eight grade mathematics lesson plan, 8th graders analyze the results of the survey and explore a variety of graphical representations of the data. Students determine and interpret measures of central tendency.
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.
Human Box and Whisker Plot
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.
Box and Whiskers
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.
Histograms, Box and Whisker Plots
Students use box and whisker plots for their data. In this algebra activity, students use a spreadsheet to create formulas to analyze their data. They collect, organize and graph their data.
Box and Whisker Plots
Students explore the concept of box and whisker plots. In this box and whisker plots lesson, 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.
Box and Whisker Plots, Why and How?
In this graphing instructional activity, learners 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.
Elucidating the concept of box-and-whisker plots, Sal explains not only how to generate the diagram, but how to read one as well. He uses several examples to help young mathematicians become familiar with the format, and explains the real-world applications in which they might see it.
Shoes in a Box
Students work in groups to collect and analyze data. In this box and whisker plot activity, students discuss central tendency and how to use the mean, median and mode to solve problems. They use Microsoft Word to log their data and use the calculator to graph their data.
How's The Weather?
Students make a box and whiskers plot using the TI-73 graphing calculator. Each student would have their own calculator but they would work in small groups of two or three to help each other enter the data and make the plots.
