Represent Math Quiz Data

A class took a math quiz in which the highest possible score was 6 points. This data set shows the scores:

{6, 1, 0, 2, 3, 4, 3, 1, 2, 6, 3, 5}

  • Sketch a line plot of the data.


  • Start by drawing a horizontal line.
  • Find the extreme values in the data set. Write all of the possible numbers, from the minimum to the maximum, so that they are evenly spaced and under the line.
  • For each value in the data set, place an X or a dot above the line in the appropriate column.
  • Cross off each number in the data set as you go.
  • Label the horizontal line and add a title to your line plot.
  • Check that the number of Xs or dots in your line plot matches the number of values in the data set.
