Area The number of square units it takes to completely fill a space or surface.
Box and Whisker Plot A diagram that summarizes data using the median, the upper and lowers quartiles, and the extreme values (minimum and maximum).
Cubic Units Measures the volume of solids
Face One of the polygons that make up a 3-dimensional figure.
Inter-Quartile Range (IQR) The difference between the first and third quartiles. (Note that the first quartile and third quartiles are sometimes called upper and lower quartiles.)
Mean The “average” or “fair share” value for the data; add all the numbers and divide by how many numbers there are.
Measures of Center Mean, median, and mode are used to summarize the middle of a data set with a single value.
Median The value for which half the numbers are larger and half are smaller. If there are two middle numbers, it is the arithmetic mean of the two middle numbers.
Mode The number that occurs the most often in a list. There can be more than one or none.
Net A 2-dimensional figure that, when folded, forms the surfaces of a 3-dimensional object.
Outlier A value that is very far away from most of the values in a data set.
Polygon A 2-dimensional closed shape with straight sides.
Prism A 3-dimensional figure with two parallel and congruent faces, called bases, and all other faces that are parallelograms.
Range The difference between the minimum and maximum value for a set of data.
Surface Area The total area of the 2-dimensional surfaces that make up a 3-dimensional figure.
Volume The amount of space occupied by a 3-dimensional object.
Dot Plot A diagram that displays data using circles or x's on a number line.
Measures of Spread Range and Interquartile Range are used to summarize the variability of a data set.
Variability Describes how spread out or closely clustered a set of a data is.
Histogram A diagram that displays the frequency of grouped data on a bar graph.
