Part 2: Poverty at Home and Abroad—part two of a two-part unit
This activity is designed to have students consider important information about world poverty by using measures of central tendency and box plots. Students analyze data and use a hands-on manipulative to interpret and understand box plots, including the connection between percentiles and quartiles. The teacher version includes additional information on world poverty as well as instructional ideas to facilitate classroom discourse.
