Practice problems are an effective way for Grade 6 students to gain proficiency in reading and interpreting box plots, teachers can provide these practice problems to their students. These problems are based on to identify the median, quartiles and range for a given box plot. Additionally, students can practice comparing and contrasting box plots from different datasets to draw conclusions about the data.
For example, if a box plot has a large range and a long whisker, it indicates that the data has a significant spread. On the other hand, if the box is narrow, and the whiskers are short, it indicates that the data is tightly clustered around the median.
