Box-and-Whisker Plots SOL 6.18

2
Step 1 – Order Numbers 1. Order the set of numbers from least to greatest

3
2. Find the median. The median is the middle number. If the data has two middle numbers, find the mean of the two numbers. What is the median? Step 2 – Find the Median

4
3. Find the lower and upper medians or quartiles. These are the middle numbers on each side of the median. What are they? Step 3 – Upper & Lower Quartiles

5
Now you are ready to construct the actual box & whisker graph. First you will need to draw an ordinary number line that extends far enough in both directions to include all the numbers in your data: Step 4 – Draw a Number Line

6
Locate the main median 12 using a vertical line just above your number line: Step 5 – Draw the Parts

7
Locate the lower median 8.5 and the upper median 14 with similar vertical lines: Step 5 – Draw the Parts

8
Next, draw a box using the lower and upper median lines as endpoints: Step 5 – Draw the Parts

9
Finally, the whiskers extend out to the data's smallest number 5 and largest number 20: Step 5 – Draw the Parts

10
Step 6 - Label the Parts of a Box-and- Whisker Plot 123 54 Name the parts of a Box-and-Whisker Plot MedianUpper Quartile Lower Quartile Lower ExtremeUpper Extreme

11
Interquartile Range The interquartile range is the difference between the upper quartile and the lower quartile. 14 – 8.5 =5.5

Landmarks: Box-and-Whisker Plots 1.5a. The range is not a good measure of spread because one extreme, (very high or very low value) can have a big affect.
