Part of the The Workshop Mathematics Project book series (TIMS)


You have been analyzing distributions of data by constructing various graphical displays (dotplot, histogram, stemplot, boxplot), by calculating numerical measures of various aspects of that distribution (mean, median, and mode for center; range, interquartile range, and standard deviation for spread), and by commenting verbally on features of the distribution revealed in those displays and statistics. Thus far you have concentrated on one distribution at a time. With this topic you will apply these techniques in the more interesting case of analyzing, comparing, and contrasting distributions from two or more groups simultaneously.
