Who is Taller?

To find out who is taller, the boys or the girls in your class, you need to separate the data set of student heights you collected in Lesson 2 into two data sets: one for boys and one for girls.

  1. Make a line plot for each set of data. In order to compare the two plots, make the range and intervals of the horizontal line the same for both plots. Position one plot directly above the other.

  2. Calculate the mean, median, mode, and range for each plot.

  3. Decide which group of students is taller, and justify your answer using the measures you calculated.

  4. How does each line plot compare to the class line plot for all of the students?
