Pennies and Box and Whisker Plots

Of course, I can't find the activity sheet online that I used for this activity but basically I had my Accelerated Algebra I students bring in pennies.  It is a small class, but we collected a bunch.  Then, we worked as a class to sort them and it ended up making its nice own little histogram.  Next, we made a box and whisker out of the dates of the pennies.

Here is the class busy at work:  (the pennies are so little, they are hard to see)  Can you tell where the pennies from the 2000s are?

  1. Loved this activity! It allowed students to synthesize all their stats skills and make decisions about their data.
