Box and Whisker Plot • Activity Builder by Desmos

I am needing assistance with coding. I borrowed this activity from two different people. I would like for students to plot the data, create the box and whisker plot, and then receive feedback if it is correct or not. I can do the plotting and creating but the teacher dashboard is not showing correct and I can’t figure out the feedback portion. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I think maybe you want to set steps for a,b,c,d,e sliders so they don’t smoothly move. It’s going to be almost impossible to slide those to the integer values, particularly with how far they plot is away from the number line.

I have added a 2nd slide with the sliders lowered. I still don’t know what I am doing wrong. The dashboard still shows an x and I am not certain how to add the feedback for students about the box plot being correct.

Your CL makes reference to this.number("e") but there is no variable ‘e’ - you’ve used f in the graph (because Desmos doesn’t allow the variable e).

Update it to this.number("f") and it works just fine.
