By the end of this tutorial students will be able to define and calculate the minimum, lower quartile, median, upper quartile, and maximum, then use those values to create a box and whisker plot.

**BOX AND WHISKER PLOT:** A data plot that graphs the maximum, quartiles, and minimum along a number line to show comparison between the quarters of the data.

**MAXIMUM:** The largest term of a data set

**MEAN**: The "average" of the numbers. The sum of the terms divided by the number of terms.

**MEDIAN**: The middle term of a data set when put in order from least to greatest

**MINIMUM: **The smallest term in a data set

**MODE**: The most common term in a data set.

**QUARTILE**: The median of the upper and lower half of data; divides the data into groups of one-forth.
