1. Box-and-Whisker Plots - Construct a box‑and‑whisker plot to match a line plots, and construct a line plot to match a box‑and‑whisker plots. Manipulate the line plot and examine how the box‑and‑whisker plot changes. Then manipulate the box‑and‑whisker plot and examine how the line plot changes.
2. Populations and Samples - Compare sample distributions drawn from population distributions. Predict characteristics of a population distribution based on a sample distribution and examine how well a small sample represents a given population.
