Students will discover how to make sense of data by learning the uses of a box plot. Students will additionally create box plots using data sets and analyze them for similarities and differences. From there, students will compare the data of two treatments from scientific experiments.

Learning Objectives

Use data from a randomized experiment to compare two treatments; use simulations to decide if differences between parameters are significant. (Common Core State Standards: CONTENT.HSS.IC.B.5)
