6.SP.B.4

Display numerical data in plots on a number line, including dot plots, histograms, and box plots.

7.SP.B.4

Use measures of center and measures of variability for numerical data from random samples to draw informal comparative inferences about two populations.

HSS.CP.A.4

7.SP.B.3

Informally assess the degree of visual overlap of two numerical data distributions with similar variabilities, measuring the difference between the centers by expressing it as a multiple of a measure of variability.
