- Today we will learn about a new type of graph.
- It is called a whisker box

- Box and whisker plots
- A box and whisker plot is used to display information about the range, the median and the quartiles. It is usually drawn alongside a number line

FIVE POINT SUMMARY More detailed than reporting only median, but less detailed than showing a histogram or stem & leaf diagram, is the FIVE NUMBER SUMMARY

- Example
- The oldest person in Mathsminster is 90. The youngest person is 15.
- The median age of the residents is 44, the lower quartile is 25, and the upper quartile is 67.
- Represent this information with a box-and-whisker plot.
- Solution

- You have three post-its
- Write your name on each
- Use one to records your
- Height
- Age in Months
- Shoe Size

- Now that we have our data we are going to create a human whisker box.
- Lets use our height data first!
- Line up in order from least to greatest.
- Lets find the Median
- Now separate the Upper and Lower halves of the data
- Let’s find the middle of the lower half.
- This is the lower quartile

- This is the upper quartile

- Now that we have our data we are going to create a human whisker box.
- Lets use our ages in month next !
- Line up in order from least to greatest.
- Lets find the Median
- Now separate the Upper and Lower halves of the data
- Let’s find the middle of the lower half.
- This is the lower quartile

- This is the upper quartile
