### Objectives

• Students will represent real-world data using a histogram and box and whisker diagram.
• Students will calculate measures of central tendency and spread.
• Students will compare distributions from two data sets and draw conclusions.
• Students will identify and analyze outliers in a data set.

### Vocabulary

• Histogram
• Outlier
• Box and Whisker Diagram
• Skew
• Median
• Interquartile Range

Students are given the results from a recent test.  They will need to display the data graphically and will refresh their understanding of histograms and box and whisker diagrams.

## Step 1

Students will represent real-world data using a histogram and box plot and calculate measures of central tendency and spread.

## Step 2

Then students will compare distributions from two data sets and draw conclusions and identify and analyze outliers in a data set.
