This task assesses understanding of graphs and box plots.

A graph is given that shows the highest average temperature for each month in California and Washington. The task is to say what is the same about the graphs, and what is different. A subsequent task is to select correct box plots for California and Washington.

This task is from the Mathematics Assessment Resource Service, a collaboration between UC Berkeley and the Shell Centre team at the University of Nottingham. A full rubric is given for the task, together with examples of student work and suggestions for helping students overcome misconceptions. Further information on the collection is given here.
