Box and Whisker Plots
Name ________________________
Standard: PS (Probability and Statistics) 1.1 – Know various forms of display for data sets,
including box-and-whisker plot; use the forms to display a single set of data.
PS 1.3 – Understand the meaning of, and be able to compute, the minimum, the lower quartile,
the median, the upper quartile, and the maximum of a data set.
Box-and-Whisker Plot: an easy way to graph data on a number line using a five number
summary.

Median: The MEDIAN is the middle number when there are an ODD number of data
items written IN ORDER.
1, 3, 6, 11, 15, 19, 23, 24, 35, 46, 56
19 is the middle number and is therefore the median
Note: For an EVEN number of data items, the median is the MEAN (average) of the two
middle numbers.
3, 6, 11, 15, 19, 23, 24, 35
15 and 19 are the middle numbers
15 + 19 = 34
34 ÷ 2 = 17
17 is the median
