Complete a graph given the data, using dot plots, histograms or box plots.

Essential Understandings


  • Match the source of the values at the bottom of the x-axis with the appropriate category of the related data table.
  • Describe the elements within a graph (e.g., in a box plot the line is the median, the line extending from each box is the lower and upper extreme, and the box shows the lower quartile and the upper quartile).
  • Complete the steps to create a box plot, dot plot or histogram.
  • Understand the following concepts and vocabulary: quartile, median, intervals, upper and lower extremes, box plot, histograms and dot plots.
General Information
Number: MAFS.912.S-ID.1.AP.1a
Category: Access Points
Date Adopted or Revised: 06/14
Cluster: Summarize, represent, and interpret data on a single count or measurement variable. (Algebra 1 - Additional Cluster) (Algebra 2 - Additional Cluster)

Clusters should not be sorted from Major to Supporting and then taught in that order. To do so would strip the coherence of the mathematical ideas and miss the opportunity to enhance the major work of the grade with the supporting clusters.
