What are Box Plots?

Box Plots are another way to show information. A standardized way of displaying the distribution of data based on the five different points, which are: minimum (lowest value), first quartile, median, third quartile, and maximum (largest value). Before you start to make a Box Plot, first you have to put the values in numerical order.

Minimum- Just get the lowest value of your data set.

First Quartile- The left side of the median.

Median- The middle number of your data, when numbers are put least to greatest.

Third Quartile- The right side of the median.

Maximum- Just get the greatest value of your data set.
