- Traditional Stats uses frequency distributions from which various graphs can be constructed. Uses mean and standard deviation. Used to confirm conjectures about the nature of the data.
- EDA uses stem-leaf plots and box plots. Uses median and IQR. Used to look at center and spread of data.

The Five-Number Summary is composed of the following numbers: Low, Q1, MD, Q3, High

The Five-Number Summary can be graphically represented using a Boxplot.
