A box plot is a visual representation of data that shows the distribution of a set of numbers. It is a helpful tool for understanding the spread and variability of data. In a box plot, the "box" represents the middle 50% of the data, while the "whiskers" extend to the minimum and maximum values. The median, or middle value, is shown as a line inside the box. By reading a box plot, students in grade 6 can learn to analyze and interpret data, and make comparisons between different sets of data
