Students continued again today learning how to construct a box & whisker plot! Several examples were worked together in class to ensure understanding and accuracy.

Procedures for Constructing a Box and Whisker Plot

Students are to use these guidelines to complete their homework. Only 7 problems were assigned. Students: remember to identify the 5 main components needed to build your display: median, LQ, UQ, least value (LV), greatest value (GV) and then create your plot!

We completed the first problem together in class so you would have an example to guide you!

It’s finally here!!  Box and whisker plot day! We have been working so hard to get to this topic! Students have been very anxious to learn how we construct box and whisker plots and today their curiosity was satisfied!

Students took down a six-step process to developing this type of graphical display. Notes were taken down on a chart and then glued into their math notebooks. We worked a couple of examples in class before the bell got us, but everyone seemed to understand the process well.

Since we are still learning, no homework tonight! We will get back at it first thing on Tuesday!

# Thursday, March 19th

We learned how to construct Dot Plans today in class. We also learned how to construct and populate Frequency Tables. Students will continue will explore Dot Plots in class tomorrow.

NO HOMEWORK FOR THURSDAY NIGHT!

Wow! Students worked so hard today learning three new skills! These skills are an extension of our Percentages Unit. They are very practical skills, ones that we all use in everyday life!

Today students learned how to calculate Discounts, Sales Tax, and Tips!  We took extensive notes in our math notebooks and worked many examples. Homework for tonight only focuses on calculating discounts.

Students remember: You must show your work! Also remember to calculate not only the amount of the discount, but also the final price of the item!  Seven problems, three points each! Work hard!
