In this activity, students will collect data in their class to determine foot sizes of students and compare foot sizes between boys and girls. To illustrate the data students will compute measures of center (mean, median), quartiles (first, second, and third quartiles) and spread (range, Interquartile Range (IQR), standard deviation) for boys and girls combined and also separately. Students will also construct a comparative boxplot to compare foot sizes of boys and girls. Conclusions will be drawn based upon analysis of the data and examinations of graphs in the context of questions asked about sizes of feet.
