We Day Part 1

Tomorrow we start our journey to We Day. But today we have a last math poverty assignment. You need to take your World Poverty Chart and create a Box and Whisker Plot.  You need to use 3 different number lines.  One will have an interval of 2, one an interval of 5 and one an interval of 10.  You will use the same data of Upper and Lower Extremes, Upper and Lower Quartiles and the Median for each graph.  Make sure to title your 3 Box and Whisker Plots and do not touch the number line with your box.
