Be able to calculate the IQR and use it to find outliers. Be able to construct a box plot. Be able to interpret percentiles. Be able to calculate mean, median, mode, sample standard deviation, and variance using your calculator Given a frequency distribution, be able to calculate the mean. Given two scenarios, be able to determine which situation is better using z scores like #22 on worksheet #8. Be able to identify outliers using z scores. This test will be closed book, no notes.
