Box Plot Worksheets

What is a Box Plot

A box plot is a visual way of recording data values.

The data from a box plot can show us 5 facts:

  • the minimum data value;
  • the 1st quartile value;
  • the median value.
  • the 3rd quartile value;
  • the maximum data value;

Using these facts, we can also quickly use the box plot work out:

  • the range of the data set by subtracting the minimum value from the maximum value;
  • the interquartile range of the data set by subtracting the 1st quartile value from the 3rd quartile value;
  • whether the data is skewed to the left or right.
