Welcome to our Dot Plot Worksheets page.

Here you will find our range of free statistics worksheets,
which will help you to learn how to create and interpret dot plots.

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

A line plot is another name for a dot plot.

Dot plots are useful for displaying small amounts of data in discrete bins (categories).

The dot plot above, shows the number of goals scored by a soccer team in the matches they played.

Using a dot plot, we can also work out:

- the range of the data set by subtracting the minimum value from the maximum value;
- In the example above the range of goals scored is 6 - 0 = 6 goals.
- the median can be found by working out the number of data points and then finding the middle one;
- In the example above, there are 15 matches played in total. The middle match is the 8th. The number of goals scored in this match was 3.
- the mean can be found by adding up all the values and dividing by the number of values.
- In the example above, the total goals scored is 0 + 1x2 + 2x4 + 3x3 + 4x1 + 5x2 + 6x2 = 45. The number of matches is 15. So the mean is 45 ÷ 15 = 3 goals per match.

These sheets have been designed for students around 6th grade level.

We have split our worksheets into two sections:

- creating dot plot worksheets;
- interpreting dot plot worksheets.

These sheets involve the following:

- using the information to draw a dot plot on the number line provided.
- putting a data set in order;
- finding the median value;
- finding the range;
- finding the mean value;

These sheets involve answering a range of questions about the dot plot, including:

- identifying the minimum and maximum values;
- identifying the median value.
- finding the range;
- finding the mean value..
